Look, I do not know if the Oilers come all the way in which again and win 4 straight, however by no means has “if theres any workforce that may, it is this one” rung extra true due to Connor McDavid. Actually the perfect.

McDavid was the star, however the Oilers additionally obtained targets from Connor Brown, Zach Hyman and Corey Perry. Goaltender Stuart Skinner allowed targets to Matthew Tkachuk, Evan Rodrigues and Oliver Ekman-Larsson however nonetheless saved 30 of the 33 pictures he confronted.

It was extra of the identical for the Oilers, who had loads of momentum regardless of the collection deficit following a dominant 8-1 win in Saturday’s Recreation 4. Florida pulled goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky in the course of the earlier loss after he and the complete workforce was overwhelmed by the Oilers’ offensive assault, and the beginning of Recreation 5 did nothing to quell any lingering issues.

Brown intercepted a go and scored a short-handed aim on the breakaway he created to open the scoring within the first interval.

That was simply the beginning of the preliminary onslaught for the Oilers, as McDavid shifted into takeover mode within the second interval with assists on targets from Hyman and Perry to go together with his personal aim. He glided by way of defenders with ease in a show of particular person celebrity brilliance that few in NHL historical past may have pulled off.

But the house workforce lower into three-goal deficits on a number of events with targets from Tkachuk and Rodrigues to maintain the gang totally engaged and apply stress on an Edmonton workforce combating for the survival of its championship goals.

By no means was that stress extra obvious than when Ekman-Larsson buried a aim on a Tkachuk help lower than 5 minutes after the beginning of the third interval.

To the Oilers’ credit score, they withstood the stress due to sturdy protection and play from Skinner. Fittingly, it was McDavid who scored the open-netter within the ultimate seconds to clinch the win and pressure the collection again to Edmonton for Friday’s Recreation 6.
