The 7 Oilers were sunk by a lawn mower engine again

The 7 Oilers were sunk by a lawn mower engine again

Edmonton | A two-stroke engine is good for a mower. At the limit of the bike. But when you play in the federation final, it's not possible.

However, it appears the Oilers have not learned their lesson yet. Since the start of the playoffs, Vincent Desharnais has reiterated that he and his teammates must play 60 minutes of hockey well. In the playoffs, it is impossible to win by playing two-part matches.

Yesterday, for the second time in a row since the start of their match against the Stars, the Oilers completely dominated the first half before seeing the situation go from one side to the other over the next 20 minutes.

“We got the start we wanted. But then, we took our foot off the gas,” summed up Chris Knoblauch.

The result is that Connor McDavid and his friends were beaten 5-3 and are now down 2-1 in the series.

The transformation came in the second half. After taking a 2-0 lead, the locals watched the Stars score three consecutive goals in the space of 3 minutes and 33 seconds. Third match, three goals, 3 minutes and 33 seconds. It seems that Madame Minou and JoJo Savard did not sleep all night.

Furthermore, while the Stars scored their three goals, the Oilers didn't put a shot on Jake Oettinger. I think in the first and third periods, the Stars only got six shots.

Hintz's return benefits Robertson

Jason Robertson started the push by scoring the first two of his three goals of the evening. Hat-tricks, including the winning goal. This is a great way to end a 10-game drought without pulling the strings.

In the morning, Texans head coach Pete De Boer had high praise for him.

He may not have scored in the last 10 games, but he continues to contribute offensively. He has collected practically one point per game since the start of the playoffs. “Any coach would accept that at this time of the year.”

Robertson completes his hat-trick

We have to believe that he is the one who benefited the most from the return of Roope Hintz. The Finnish player was suffering from an upper body injury, and missed his team's last four matches. He made his presence felt as he set up Robertson's first two goals.

For his return to play, he was used for 17 minutes and 48 seconds.

“We could see his speed. He was often the first to get the puck on the front check. He won almost all his races,” Robertson said after the meeting.

100 points for McDavid

In the losing camp, Adam Henrique also appeared. After missing seven matches, he scored a goal.

However, it was McDavid who led the Oilers' offense. Partner in goal with Zach Hyman and author of his fourth goal of the series – a goal precisely inspired by the one scored by Hyman – the Oilers captain reached the plateau of 100 points in the playoffs.

McDavid gives the Oilers a 2-0 lead

It took him 64 to reach it. Wayne Gretzky (46), Mario Lemieux (50) and Leon Draisaitl (60) were the only ones to get there faster.
