The Oilers played a complete game on Saturday night when they took care of the Winnipeg Jets. Mike Smith picked up his third shutout of the year while the Oilers got goals from Tyson Barrie, Jesse Puljujärvi and Alex Chiasson en route to a 3-0 victory. The played well for being a team that was off for an entire week, and they’ll look to carry that momentum into tonight’s game against the Canadiens. Montréal is a club that’s had Edmonton’s number this season so far, can the Oilers flip the script on the Habs tonight?
It’s a massive win...Any time you’re coming down the stretch and you’re playing teams ahead of you, you want to beat them and tighten the gap. Tonight was a big win for that.
That’s Oilers captain Connor McDavid after his club’s 3-0 win over the Jets on Saturday night.
McDavid picked up two assists in the Oilers’ win, bringing his season total to 71 points. Another day at the office for this guy.
That’s Canadiens goaltender Carey Price after getting shutout by the Senators on Saturday night.
Fifteen shots - that’s all Ottawa would need to take care of the Habs on Saturday night. The Canadiens are looking like a good bet to finish fourth in the North Division, though Saturday’s loss to the Senators has got to raise a couple of eyebrows. Though the Canadiens have two games in hand, Calgary is just six points back with a couple of Habs games coming up on the schedule.
