NHL Roundup: Oilers Hit Too Late To Beat Blues

2021-11-15 07:25:39 GMT + 00: 00 – Kailer Yamamoto scored a goal with 27.8 seconds left to beat the visiting Edmonton Oilers to a 5-4 win over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday respectively.

Leon Draisaitl had one goal and two assists for the Oilers, including preparing for Yamamoto’s game-winning goal from the slot. Connor McDavid, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Ryan McLeod also scored for Edmonton.

McDavid extended his season opening streak to 14 games. He scored his 600th point in his 421st game and became the sixth fastest NHL player to reach that milestone.

Jordan Kyrou, Robert Bortuzzo, Ivan Barbashev and Vladimir Tarasenko scored for the blues. Robert Thomas had three assists and Pavel Buchnevich had two.

Oilers goalkeeper Mikko Koskinen stopped 35 of 39 shots to claim victory. Blues net keeper Jordan Binnington stopped 27 shots in defeat.

Bruins 5, Canadiens 2

Charlie Coyle was in the right place to give Boston the final lead in defeating the Montreal visit in the rivals’ first clash in nearly two years.

Coyle scored twice, Charlie McAvoy also scored two goals for the Bruins, who have won back-to-back games and five of the last seven overall. Boston rookie goalkeeper Jeremy Swayman made 27 saves to go undefeated at home with an 8-0-0 record.

Joel Armia and Michael Pezzetta each scored their first goals of the season for the Canadiens, who lost their second game in a row.

Ranger 4, Devil 3 (SO)

Chris Kreider scored the game-winning goal in the seventh round to top off an action-packed shootout as New York survived a late lead before defeating New Jersey.

Kreider scored New York’s fourth goal on penalties when he took a long-range shot, stormed into the net and faked Devils goalkeeper Jonathan Bernier. When Bernier went down, Kreider won it by lifting a backhander into the top of the net to give the Rangers their seventh straight win over the Devils.

Kaapo Kakko scored New York’s first goal on penalties after quitting give-and-go with Ryan Strome to put the Rangers 3-2 up 6:29 in the third. The teams needed extra time after Pavel Zacha scored a goal after a rebound 2:44 minutes before regular time.

Capitals 6, penguins 1

Daniel Sprong and Conor Sheary each collected one goal and one assist against their former side to lead hosts Washington to victory over Pittsburgh.

Garnet Hathaway, Tom Wilson and Evgeny Kuznetsov also scored, setting up a goal to promote the Capitals to their fourth straight win. Defender Martin Fehervary scored a close goal, captain Alex Ovechkin made two assists and Vitek Vanecek saved the win with 24 saves.

Jake Guentzel scored one goal and Tristan Jarry saved 26 shots for Pittsburgh, who have lost seven of their last nine games (2-5-2). Before the game, the Penguins activated superstar captain Sidney Crosby and defenders Brian Dumoulin, Marcus Pettersson and Chad Ruhwedel from the NHL’s COVID-19 log. Pittsburgh manager Mike Sullivan also returned to the bench after missing five games while on record.

Flames 4, Senators 0

Elias Lindholm had a goal and an assist and Dan Vladar made 27 saves for his first career NHL shutout when Calgary beat hosts Ottawa.

Andrew Mangiapane, Matthew Tkachuk and Nikita Zadorov also scored for the Flames, who lost three games. The Flames improved to 1-1-1 on their seven-game journey.

Anton Forsberg stopped 29 of 33 shots for Ottawa, who have won only once in their last eight games, a 6-3 decision over Pittsburgh on Saturday. The Senators remained understaffed with nine players in the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol: strikers Austin Watson, Alex Formenton, Dylan Gambrell and Connor Brown, defensemen Nick Holden, Victor Mete, Nikita Zaitsev and Josh Brown, and goalkeeper Matt Murray.

Ducks 5, Canucks 1

Trevor Zegras scored two goals and Troy Terry had an assist to expand his points streak to 14 NHL-leading games when Anaheim increased its winning streak to seven games with a win over the Vancouver visit.

Sonny Milano, Adam Henrique and Sam Steel added goals to the Ducks, while Zegras also provided an assist as Anaheim has built its longest winning streak in a season since its eleventh straight win in the 2015-16 season. Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf had two assists to give him 999 career points, while Jakob Silfverberg added an assist on his return from a 10-day quarantine during the NHL COVID-19 protocol.

Nils Hoglander scored a goal for the Canucks, who have lost twice to the Ducks in their current four-game losing streak. Four of Hogland’s five goals of the season have come in the last three games.
