Oilers continue to check off boxes as regular season comes to an end

If you missed that rare, midweek, afternoon start in the Mountain time zone on Wednesday, allow Edmonton Oilers head coach Dave Tippett to summarize it for you. “Sloppy, nobody got hurt, and we got two points. Other than that it was good.” We could spend the next 800 words or so describing a meaningless game between two teams that have their playoff matchups set, but if games like this are your thing we’ll point you towards a season-ending series between Calgary and Vancouver that will

MONTREAL — Dominik Kahun scored the overtime winner for the Edmonton Oilers in a 4-3 win Wednesday over the host Montreal Canadiens. Kahun went backhand to forehand on a feed from Leon Draisaitl to score the winner 27 seconds into the extra period. The Oilers posted back-to-back OT wins at the Bell Centre following Monday’s 4-3 win, in which captain Connor McDavid scored the winner. Draisaitl, Alex Chaisson and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins also scored for the Oilers (35-18-2). McDavid had two assist
