Oilers turn lessons from Game 1 loss into complete performance in Game 2

EDMONTON — It’s a quote that can boomerang on you. “We’re going to find out a lot about our team,” Edmonton Oilers head coach Dave Tippett predicted on the morning of a must-win Game 2. “How we play tonight; how we deal with going out in a must-win game. Let’s see how we react.” By the time the night had passed, Connor McDavid had scored a hat trick, the penalty kill had rebounded with a perfect night, and the third line was celebrating a two-goal shift that put the game away.

The Edmonton Oilers gut-check in Game 2, come up with 6-3 win to even series

The Edmonton Oilers could not afford to fall behind Chicago 2-0. The odds are heavily stacked against teams that do that against any opposition in a 5-game series. And they indeed did not, scoring a convincing 6-3 win over Chicago Monday at Rogers Place to knot the series 1-1. Connor McDavid was the big show. He went super-sonic with his 1 st

GDB +2.0 Wrap Up: That’s how you rebound, Oilers come up with huge 6-3 win over Blackhawks

Doubt Connor McDavid again — I dare you. Final Score: 6-3 After Saturday afternoon’s disastrous start to the series, the Oilers had little option but to ensure that they were far better prepared in every aspect of their game than what we saw in Game 1. Outside of the powerplay which was excellent, Edmonton played about as sloppy as we’ve seen in ages and that’s not going to fly in a short series like this, and to state the obvious, they need a much better effort from the crease on out

EDMONTON — Connor McDavid notched his first ever playoff hat trick to lead the Edmonton Oilers to a 6-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks, tying their best-of-five qualifying series at one game apiece. McDavid scored 19 seconds into the game, then off an electrifying solo rush just past the four-minute mark, and once more on the power play late in the second period at Rogers Place Monday night.

Exercising the demons of Game 1 required a full-scale revamp of overall team effort, defensive awareness and the will to win.
