Could-have? In total, Connor McDavid's post in overtime means that everyone has separated the 2-point Oilers in Winnipeg on Thursday.
Should-have? No, you can not really argue that the Edmonton Oilers were the best team on the night. So, although I do not think they are necessarily lucky to have one point, I do not think they deserve more than that. After all, Winnipeg was prominent in the secondary school in the 3rd Stage, shooting Edmonton 17-2 and visited them 41-5. Yes, the last statistics are correct. Oh!
But in fact … at the beginning of the game and knowing that Oscar Klefbom and Kris Russell are losing against the high octane Winnipeg Jets, would you have anticipated that the Oilers will get a point or more? I did not.
Here's the tape history.
CAM TALBOT. 5. Did you need to save from Cam Talbot on that shot that Josh Morrissey did in overtime? Yes, you did. And that's what Talbot has been missing for most so far this season … the great, timely rescue. But to be fair, the game also does not have overtime at all without great effort from Talbot in the 3rd Period. Not even close. He was the best rescue of all on playing Jets power at the opportunity of Mark Scheifele. Laine had few things, but that shot came back from the right of the slot off the one of the best best scorers in the NHL. Stopped 35 out of 40.
CONNOR McDAVID. 6. A Game ending from Captain. Named the second star of the game. He won 2 assistants, the first one turned into a net away from the Darnell Nurse's foot, the second being a hard and tough track that Alex Chiasson drew home. Only one shot of himself, although he was calling the bar in O / T. But McDavid took 2 minor penalties too, and there were some problems in his own area and that was the ultimate his man scored in Timetable. I thought that there should have been a penalty during its first period. The first aid was the 300th point McDavid of the NHL career, the fastest 2nd Oiler to reach that mark behind … guess who?
LEON DRAISAITL. 7. Another world-wide pass to Connor McDavid. This time it happened on the play power, cross-ice eye-sighted dish in the aggressive zone from behind to Connor. The latter came straight to Chiasson for what was the goal ahead. You can not call it as a primary assistant but the puck does not go into play Violet. And it all started with the wall. Also, place Spooner in the slot for the 1-0 with another perfect passing. Late on the back check at the 3-1, or we'll have it to 8. Quickly for a 100-point term.
ALEX CHIASSON. 6. Attach a career high for goals in a season (13) in a fraction of the games played (only 26, instead of 79 that played for Dallas in 20013-14). And Chiasson enrolled with a very net net play, put forward and then put his stick in the right place and place. That was 1 of 4 drawings in 19:20. Having lost his goal in the first play power in the Jets.
DARNELL NURSE. 7. Great effort. Having a high career 31 minutes 4 seconds. Stunning shift. After scoring by going to the net and rewarding it when the puck had to bank off his skate. This performance is a good example of how CF% is actually a better team status than one individual (NVQ Nurse Incident was 22-28, 44%), as a Nurse was outstanding. Put Caggiula all on its own, but The Drake hit it high. Partially at fault at 1-1. Man in O / T.
ADAM LARSSON. 5. Many were over 28:45, as her 27.03% CF and 30.77 FF% suggested. Late night -1. 2 hits to block Nothing fancy. They would have been lost there without him, though.
RYAN NUGENT-HOPKINS. 6. Part of a continuous circle that eventually led to Khaira's goal and helped The Nuge's efforts. However, only one shot itself, and only 36% was on the dot. He won a key battle on the wall at Chiasson's goal, if they were awarded 3rd aid, he would have won one there.
JESSE PULJUJARVI. 6. Very strong 2-way game. A well-earned assistant at Khaira's goal by playing a solid part on the forecasting check and eventually giving a tidy pass on the J.J tape. at the top of the crew. Myers dropped from a small one in the 1st. Blow 2 shot. They can not produce one at the other address.
JUJHAR KHAIRA. 6. Its program really led to its own goal to even remove the game 3. Others on the ice have played a part in that way as well. But Jujhar Kharia started with great defensive play alone and turned to the North. Then he had numerous touches along the walls in the attack zone before he beat Connor Hellebuyck in front of him. He also lost his check twice on the 1st Jets power play goal. But too high, J.J. as well. She has 6 points in 7 games.
KEVIN GRAVEL. 4. Played until his tongue has practically dragged on the ice. 20:38 is his hottest workload of the season. After finishing -2. If you are considering these two statistics with each other, they read this way: Good 3rd-guy D-guy is just over his head on the second pair against a team like the Jets. In order to be fair, however, it was unfortunately having the 2-1 going off to skate. Gravel was there and the right place on the play.
MATT BENNING. 4. O.K. performance on the second pair of Benning. Shock, 2 hits and a block at 18:05. Did he and Gravel trace many? Completely. Indeed, Matt Benning was more than doubled at a score of / against. But on the whole, I felt a benting bent but stopped breaking.
KYLE BRODZIAK. 6. A little defensive effort. 56% on dot Exhibition, hit, block and 2 assaults at 17:25. Kyle Brodziak was particularly effective in the PK with the 3-2 Jets score and 97 in the box for one of 2 visits.
LUCIG MILAN. 5. Play protective sound. Led by the team with 4 hits. After making key plays in the 3rd Period to protect the leader (at the time), one is obvious under his own zone, another effective back chess that ended up to drop Jets.
ZACK KASSIAN. 5. Cut the puck by Tyler Myers at a clear cut. Had 2 shots in 17:10. 2 shot and hit
JASON GARRISON. 2. Hello, Caleb Jones. The lack of Garrison abuse caused him a penalty against Patrik Laine, the advantage of the Jets capitalized for the 1-1. Then there was a turn turnover in the 3rd. Unlucky to finish the night +2. After reconciling most to 8:59.
CHRIS WIDEMAN. 5. Best I've seen it in an Oilers shirt quite. 3 shot, 2 hits and block 11:07. It came close to a lack of opportunities on and against (although it loses its narrow). You'll get that from Chris Wideman, I'll believe.
RYAN SPOONER. 6. A shot shifted from the victim killed his 2nd goal as a member of the Oilers on snappy foods by Leon Draisaitl. Ryan Spooner was the only equal Oilers player or cut 50% in each CF Event (6-6). That's saying something.
DRAKE CAGGUL. 4. Drake Caggiula eventually started and the chaos ended the typing goal. The play was controlled by the puck on the Caggiula stick. But unaccupied play turned the puck over, leading to a 45 seconds fire drill in the Oilers zone that ended with unpacked Caggiula and could not cover his man in front. The rest of his game was o.k., but this mistake was crucial and determined.
TOBIAS RIEDER. 5. Its speed was evident in a robust defensive effort. He came in and pulled 2 pucks. Had a blow, hit and block in just 10:06.
The Edmonton Oilers continue to be a wildcard in the West in 37 points and with an online game on Vegas. They fight the flyers fly tomorrow, in the 2nd backup.
