Leon Draisaitl brought the Oilers to the lead after only 71 seconds. But New Jersey showed for a long time as an unpleasant opponent. After Jesper Bratt balanced early after all the way, it became the end of the second third of Kurios: Evander Kane overwall Guest Keeper Jon Gillies was about two minutes before the end of the center section by farm trick (38). But only after the finalirs and after video proof, the referees recognized that the puck had crossed the goal line – and thus subsequently on the hit. The already played finals 2:12 minutes of the second third had to be completed again.
Led by the strong Sweden Bratt, who once met 26 seconds after the restart again and then the Swiss Nico Hischier the 3: 2 went (44.), the Devils turned the game initially in the final third. But with a berry final spurt, Edmonton still secured the two points. First Tyson met Barrie for compensation (50th), then the Canadians with two goals moved within 49 seconds by Kane and Zach Hyman (53 each) to 5: 3 of them. Connor McDavid added his two templates at the end of the hit to the 6: 3 final score in the empty goal.
For the first time since the move to the new Arena, the Oilers thus won five home games one after the other, so in the Pacific Division now only two points behind the Los Angeles Kings ranked two. In the night on Tuesday (2:30 clock), however, a serious away task of the league-leader Colorado Avalanche is waiting for the freshly turned to Denver Nico Storm.
