Two goals, two assists: Draisaitl stops the Oilers’ descent


Share post:

Led by ice hockey star Leon Draisaitl, the Edmonton Oilers have stopped their sporting decline in the North American professional league NHL.

The 26-year-old scored the decisive goals in the 5: 3 in the Canadian duel against the Calgary Flames in the last third to make it 4: 3 and 5: 3 and let the Oilers celebrate again after seven defeats in a row. Before his season goals 27 and 28, the Cologne native had also given his assists 29 and 30.

The evening was less successful for national player Moritz Seider. The 20-year-old lost 4-1 with Detroit at the Nashville Predators. However, Seider stood out as the hardest-working Red Wings player. With 26:32 minutes, the rookie reeled off his team’s most ice time.

Tim Stützle also suffered a defeat with the Ottawa Senators. The junior international lost 3-2 in overtime with the Sens at the Washington Capitals. With 11 wins, the Senators remain the second-worst team in the East.

Nico Sturm had more reason to be happy. The forward celebrated the Minnesota Wild’s second win against the same opponent in 24 hours in a 4-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. Minnesota had already won 5-1 in Chicago on Friday (local time). Fourth in the west, the Wild are well on course for the playoffs.
