Zach Hyman in the majority introduced Edmonton in the 13th minute. In the middle average, Kailer Yamamoto and Connor McDavid (28th, 31.) built the two first hits by Assist, the lead to 3-0.
High voltage in the final minutes
An amendment hit by Adam Lowry brought Winnipeg again in the final third and once again (51.). After Kyle Connor – now in the PowerPlay – had set to 2: 3 from the point of view of the jets (55.), it became extremely exciting again.
Almost a misconception of the Oilers-Superstars then initiated the comeback of the jets: almost exactly two minutes before the end of the regular season Leon Draisaitl drove to the exchange bench, while McDavid jumped from the bank to the ice surface. To prevent an attack Winnipeg, Draisaitl, but suddenly decided to intervene in the game – and so stood six active Edmonton players on the ice.
Misunderstandance remains impossible
But in the maturing PowerPlay, the jets could not be offset. Instead, Defenders Darnell Nurse for Edmonton achieved the decisive 4: 2 with a piercing from their own zone into the orphaned jets gate. Just under three seconds were still on the music box.
Under the new coach Woodcroft, which previously looked after the Oilers Farm Team Bakersfield Condors (AHL), Edmonton now gained ten out of ten possible points in five games – at a goal ratio of 22: 8. The inadvertent play-off participation is probably again likely.
