Oilers drop fourth in a row to lose to Bruins

In Edmonton, the Oilers lost their fourth game in a row, this time, 3-2, to the Boston Bruins.

The Oilers’ attack and defence have declined in the last four games, leading 16-7.

Leon Draisaitl scored both goals for Edmonton.

“I think the last two matches could have gone either way,” Draisaitl said. “I thought we were the better team tonight, but that’s the NHL. We also won the matches that we overcame. We just have to find a way to keep the last one from conceding a goal and overtime and give ourselves a chance.

“I thought our power play was fine, but if we can get through this in extra time and give ourselves a chance, at least we’ve got a point. That’s a big step up when you’ve lost three games in a row. That’s the way it happens when you’re on the decline, you find a way to lose these kinds of games. We have to find a way out of it.”

Edmonton down to 16-9-0.

Linus Ullmark made 41 saves in the win over the Bruins.

“Linus played a strong game for us tonight, we need that,” said Bruins assistant coach Joe Sacco. “We knew when we went into the game they were here waiting for us and we played last night [2-1 shootout loss at Vancouver Canucks]. We knew our goalkeeper would have to be sharp, and he did. Good for him because we need that from him at certain times. We had some trouble on the penalty and they had a good power play and they took advantage of a few of their chances, but overall, he played a great game today.” .

Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk scored to give the Bruins a 2-0 lead.

Boston improved to 13-8-2.

“It always feels better when they come back 2-0 up and we score the winning goal at the end of the third half,” said Ullmark. “They have two of the best players in the world, so you can’t always predict the pass. There’s a lot of times McDavid and Draisaitl also shot that scene, so they keep you honest. If you start cheating then that’s when the numbers cross, so it’s really about being patient and not giving up on anything. “

Draisaitl made it 2-2.

Matt Grzelcyk win with less than three minutes left in the final bracket.

“I don’t know who was ahead, maybe [Charlie] Coyle and [Taylor] Hall and they did a great job of getting [Ullmark’s] Grzelcyk said. “I knew I had a lot of space so I kept my head up and tried to head into the net, and luckily he found some daylight.”


Stuart Skinner made 27 saves in the loss to the Oilers.
