Edmonton is one sport away from hitting the hyperlinks.
Now, the Oilers are within the unenviable place of needing to win three straight in opposition to the Jets to advance to the second spherical of the Stanley Cup playoffs. This, after taking a 4-1 lead within the third interval of Sport 3 on Sunday earlier than dropping 5-4 in time beyond regulation.

We simply should win in the present day and return to Edmonton and attempt to win a sport after which it is a 3-2 sequence and all the things can occur. One sport at a time right here and tonight is do or die, a very vital one.”
A 3-0 gap is not nice for Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and firm. In NHL historical past, groups trailing 3-0 are 4-193 in a best-of-seven sequence. Translation: The percentages are usually not of their favor. However the Jets additionally know that closing issues out won’t be a straightforward process.
“If it should take 60 minutes or extra, it should take 60 minutes or extra,” mentioned Paul Stastny. “We have got to be prepared for that realizing that they will depart all of it on the market as a result of probably it is your final sport of the season. So they will come out preventing as laborious as they’ll.”
The Oilers may also be with out Josh Archibald, who was handed a one-game suspension earlier within the day for clipping the Jets’ Logan Stanley in Sport 3. Archibald’s penalty got here with the Oilers up 4-1 within the third; Mathieu Perreault scored on the ability play to chop Jets deficit in half. Simply over three minutes later, the sport was tied.
Now, Edmonton should flip the web page and put the stunning loss behind them. McDavid (three assists) and Draisaitl (two targets, help) lastly acquired on the board in Sport 3, however they’re going to want extra on this one contemplating simply how good Connor Hellebuyck has been between the pipes. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner has an eye-popping .958 save proportion by means of three video games.
