Previous Game Recap & Statistics

The Winnipeg Jets defeated the Edmonton Oilers in an exciting 3-2 overtime win to end their losing streak. The Jets would mount enough momentum to come back and win the game.

First Period

The Edmonton Oilers would start the party early by looking incredibly dominant for the first half of the period. Darnell Nurse would score in the first 90 seconds posting the early one-goal lead for the Oilers. The Oilers would later get their first of four powerplay opportunities of the game when Evan Bouchard would score. The Oilers had taken an early 2-0 lead, and it looked like this was set to become a blowout.

However, Winnipeg would get an opportunity of their own on the powerplay when Josh Morrissey cut the Oilers lead in half. Both teams would trade opportunities on the powerplay but would remain without a powerplay goal for the remainder of the game.

Second Period

The Winnipeg Jets and Edmonton Oilers would play lockdown defense, nearly holding each other scoreless for the entire second period. However, both teams would take turns on the penalty kill, and Edmonton would really be tested with a 5-on-3 penalty kill. Brendan Dilon and Evander Kane would drop the gloves in a mid-period tilt. Both combatants would spend a lengthy amount of time in the penalty box. In the later stage of the second period, the Winnipeg Jets were on the penalty kill. In the dying seconds of the Oilers’ power play, Vladislav Namestnikov would score a shorthanded goal to tie the game at two goals each.

Third Period

The Winnipeg Jets and Edmonton Oilers played a scoreless period at even strength to lead into overtime.

Overtime

Overtime was flashy and action-packed. Connor McDavid, who didn’t play during overtime, was later announced with an injury due to this game. Mark Scheifele would put the dagger into the hearts of Oilers fans by scoring late in overtime. Scheifele’s goal was his fourth on the season and captured the Jets’ second win of the season. This win also ended the Jets’ two-game losing streak.

Pavel Buchnevich has been out with an upper-body injury. There is a chance that he will draw back into the Blues lineup tonight.

For St. Louis, I’d watch how they deploy their lineup against the Jets’ lineup. Winnipeg is a deep team, and to beat them, they need to shut down the Jets’ top lines from the start.
