In a big Pacific Division showdown, the Edmonton Oilers faced off against the Seattle Kraken. Both of the teams are vying for third overall in the Pacific for a more favourable first round matchup come the playoffs.
Edmonton got off to a good start with a goal just 95 seconds into the game, but the Kraken were able to respond shortly after. However, the Oilers scored again and at that point onwards, they never trailed. Both teams racked up more goals than not as Edmonton scored a total of six, the Kraken with four.
Stakes were high, and in a big game, the Oilers picked up a big win. They are now three points ahead of the Kraken. McDavid had a milestone game as well, it being the 20th time he’s scored at least three points this year. He now sits at 134 points on the season.
