The Edmonton Oilers have fired coach Jay Woodcroft after a team that was supposed to be a Stanley Cup contender lost 10 of its first 13 games.
Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid each scored twice and the Edmonton Oilers tied their Western Conference semifinal series at one game apiece with a 5-1 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday.
Edmonton's Leon Draisaitl and Dallas' Joe Pavelski became just the second pair of NHL players to each score four goals on consecutive days in the playoffs.
Edmonton forward Evander Kane was cut on the left wrist by a skate blade and taken to the hospital with a frightening injury during the Oilers’ 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The NHL playoffs are missing the close games and comebacks that seemingly comes annually with all the postseason intensity.
So much for the notion that goals are hard to come by in the playoffs.
