Edmonton Oilers score 3 in third period to win at Boston – Edmonton | The Canadian News

Leon Draisaitl scored two goals and an assist when the Edmonton Oilers scored a 5-3 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.

“It says a lot about our group that we don’t stop; we just keep playing our way and try to keep it even if it’s not pretty, “said Draisaitl. “But at the same time, I think there are a lot of things we can improve on that we don’t have to score five goals in every game to win a game.”

The teams exchanged goals 44 seconds apart before the game ended six minutes. David Pastrnak slid a puck under Mikko Koskinen, then Evan Bouchard fired just under the crossbar for his second of the season.

Brad Marchand put the Bruins in front within five minutes of the second. Again, the greasers were quick to respond. Zach Hyman skidded in front from the corner and scored his eighth 24 seconds later.

“You definitely want to get back on the board and turn the momentum in your favor as soon as you can,” Hyman said. “Again, it’s just one of those games where you keep pushing and the puck came in, I guess in a timely manner, so it was good.”
