Oilers Visual Recap 3: Edmonton picks up first win with a blowout in Nashville

In an impressive performance, the Edmonton Oilers secured their first win of the season by defeating the Nashville Predators with a resounding 6–1 victory. Leon Draisaitl and Zach Hyman were the standout players, each contributing four points, while Jack Campbell made 42 saves in goal.

The team demonstrated a strong even strength game, marking a stark contrast to their previous outings—they netted four even strength goals in the first period alone. One of these goals includes another highlight goal to add to McDavid’s infinite reel:

The Oilers were public about wanting high-danger shots, and they saw their opportunities turn into goals. Just take a look at the shot location plot below and see for yourself! Three goals were in the slot and the other three, while further away, were still funnelled close to the net instead of being blueline attempts. In fact, the Oilers didn’t have many shots from the blueline at all.

The Oilers’ victory marked a positive turn in their season following two initial losses, and they look to carry this momentum into their upcoming game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Mattias Ekholm was held off the scoresheet in his return to Nashville.

Charts from the win are below!
