McDavid's OT Heroics Earn Oilers Two Points Over Panthers
I remember fun. Fun used to creep up every now and again, but I remember it vividly about eleven years ago in spring.
If this Oilers team is playoff bound, you'll remember games like Edmonton and Florida. It wasn't a particularly strong game by the Oilers (they looked pretty sloppy for significant chunks of the game), but you will remember Connor McDavid rolling out of his own zone with less than ten seconds remaining in OT.
Maybe you'll remember Mark Letestu scoring on the power play. That guy's been everywhere for the Oilers lately.
You'll probably remember Jordan Eberle scoring late in the third to tie it up. Please recall Eberle's struggle to score, it's been at least four hundred years since he scored last. You'll probably recall Zack Kassian getting credited for goal he scored as well. This one wasn't challenged for being offside! It was crazy.
The Oilers emerged with two points. It wasn't a moral victory. It was an actual counts-in-the-standings victory. Two more points for the Oilers, they'll try to close out their homestand with a win against Nashville.
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"I guess it's nice, but it's not much of a milestone. I definitely hope to keep going. It's tough to be excited about it when you see a guy like (Jagr) coming in, and you see all the numbers he's got."Source
That's Connor McDavid on reaching 100 points with his first assist of the evening.
McDavid would have two more points to finish with three on the evening (1-2-3) and he now has 102 points career points in 92 games. Don't know if he's got seventeen hundred more points in him, but there's only one way to find out.
The opponents are saying
"They got the first one on the power play and then it just unraveled from there. That's all you need sometimes, a little momentum, and they ended up getting the second one and all of a sudden we're in a dogfight, the goalie's pulled and anything can happen."
Had this game been on your TV set, you would've seen that the Predators were up 4-0 for about 56 minutes of regulation. Flames scored three goals in three minutes late in the third, but ran out of time before they could do any more damage to netminder Jusse Saros.
