Letestu And Two Power Play Tallies
THE POWER PLAY GARDENS, FERTILE AGAIN!
Allowing a goal in the first minute of the game is so Oilers. They did that again, but they didn't melt like a stick of margarine in the microwave this time.
Mark Letestu scored twice for the Oilers on the power play in Winnipeg, and Leon Draisaitl had one of his own early in the second period to give the Oilers a total of three power play markers on the night. Three's a pretty good number to have when you're channelling power play goals, and it certainly helped propel the Oilers to their 6-3 victory over the Jets. Connor McDavid had three helpers 34 points (11-23-34) in 25 games. Leon Draisaitl had a pair of goals, Patrick Maroon had one, and even Benoit Pouliot got on the board as Edmonton doubled up the Jets.
Patrik Laine had two goals for the Winnipeg Jets. Patrik Laine's shot gave me cramps when I saw it.
Please be advised, there's a major lineup change this afternoon on defence. Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
Long-term lower-body injury for @drtwofive says Coach McLellan.— Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) December 3, 2016
Nothing on what's going on with Nurse, other than he's out for a while per Coach Todd McLellan.
Mark Fayne will be in the lineup along with Andrej Sekera today, and it looks like Kris Russell will get some time back on the left side. "Long term" doesn't sound very good.
The opponents are saying
"We've got a couple big games left on this trip, but we're getting there...We're starting to put our game together. Hopefully, we continue that." Source
Hopefully Davidson is really close to a return with Nurse's long term injury.— Kelly (@pipefitter34) December 3, 2016
