L.I.V.E® Montreal Canadiens vs Edmonton Oilers Live ™StreaM @FreE NHL™ 2021 :EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Tinkering with their top line paid dividends for the Edmonton Oilers.
Reunited as linemates, Leon Draisaitl had a goal and two assists and Connor McDavid added three assists to lead Edmonton past the Montreal Canadiens 6-2 on Tuesday night.
Matt Benning, Drake Caggiula, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Darnell Nurse and Kris Russell also scored for the Oilers, who snapped a four-game skid that marked their longest of the season.
”Leon probably could have won the scoring race tonight alone had he found a way to finish on some of his opportunities,” Edmonton coach Todd McLellan quipped. ”Connor, Leon, Drake – a real good night there. They shared the puck well.”
Mikko Koskinen made 27 saves as the Oilers inched back over .500 at 9-8-1.
”It’s big,” Russell said. ”We have a few days between games and now the mood’s going to be a lot better.”
Caggiula thought McDavid in particular looked as though he had had more than enough of the losing streak.
”We’ve been on a bit of a skid here and he said, `No, I’m going to take the game into my hands today,”’ Caggiula said. ”There is a few times when you say, `Jeez, is he really doing that in an NHL game right now?”’
