15 goals, wild course: Oilers
On Wednesday (local time) the Oilers lost the so -called “Battle of Alberta” 6: 9. Despite his ankle injury, Draisaitl stood on the ice from the last game of the first play-off round and was on hand in 22 minutes with a goal and two templates.
2: 0 after 51 seconds
The game started furiously – for Calgary! After 51 seconds, the puck was in the Oilers case for the second time. In the 7th minute, Ritchie increased to 3: 0. The Oilers made a change of goalkeeper – Mikko Koskinen came for Mike Smith – briefly stabilized and answered by top star Connor McDavid. A double pack from Blake Coleman and the 6: 2 by Matthew Tkachuk (29th) had the flames cheered, but Edmonton actually reported back. Zach Hyman (2), Draisaitl and Kailer Yamamoto at preparatory work by Germany’s athlete of 2020 made the Oilers comeback perfect.
Oilers do not use the momentum
But the oilers could not use this momentum for victory. Just a minute after the 6: 6, Rasmus Andersson managed the lead for the flames, a Tkachuk double pack ended the dreams of Edmonton, which ultimately lost 6: 9. In the regular season, Edmonton recently lost 5: 9 in Calgary.
overtime: Cole lets Carolina cheer
The Carolina Hurricanes also won their home game and defeated the New York Rangers 2-1 (0: 1, 0: 0, 1: 0) after extra time. Ian Cole scored the winning goal in the third minute of the extra time.
