Leon Draisaitl got his 100th NHL assist on Lucic’s goal, which made it 4-0.

After their first game as a line, when Draisaitl had a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win against the Boston Bruins on Nov. 26, McLellan said, “He skated tonight. … Leon skates, a lot of the time he just skates for Leon. Tonight, he skated for his teammates and created open ice and did some things that were beneficial to his linemates, using his size and creating space. So, that was nice to see and we need him to continue.”

“We can’t seem to start two good games in a row, it is setting us back,” Draisaitl said. “We always have to come back in games and it takes a lot of energy to do that. I thought we had some good looks in the third, but couldn’t capitalize. Credit to them, they played a good game.”

I think he’s still learning, especially in the season we’re going through now and the challenges that come with every season and new year. Being beside a talent like that is pretty special and awesome. I’m in Year 11 and I’m still learning from a guy who last year was in Year 2. It’s seeing his competitiveness and buy cheap nhl jerseys what he brings to the game and how much he loves the game and how much he wants to get better, even though you don’t see a lot of areas where he can improve.

The Calgary Flames will try to end a five-game losing streak against their biggest rival when they host the Edmonton Oilers at Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday. Khaira now has four goals and two assists in his last six games as he continues to earn more playing time, which included a bump up to and Ryan Strome’s line in Montreal.

Montreal Canadiens center Jonathan Drouin is expected to return against the Edmonton Oilers at Bell Centre on Saturday after missing the past four games because of a lower-body injury and an illness.

Despite the 2-0 score for the Oilers through the opening 20 minutes, it was actually the hometown Habs who started the game strong. Brossoit had to be sharp between the pipes early as Montreal mounted quite a bit of offensive pressure during a Leon Draisaitl interference penalty. The Oilers weathered the storm, though, and took over the period from there.

The Oilers had what they thought was a comfortable lead one week ago against the Calgary Flames but they ended up winning 7-5 after taking a 6-1 advantage into the final frame. They made sure that didn’t happen again with two more goals in the third period to close out their victory in Montreal.

Center Auston Matthews will not play for the Toronto Maple Leafs when they face the Edmonton Oilers at Air Canada Centre on Sunday because of an upper-body injury.

“We can’t seem to start two good games in a row, it is setting us back,” Draisaitl said. “We always have to come back in games and it takes a lot of energy to do that. I thought we had some good looks in the third, but couldn’t capitalize. Credit to them, they played a good game.”

The Oilers killed a pair of penalties in the first. Brossoit stood tall as one of the Oilers best penalty killers, turning aside everything he saw shorthanded despite the Flyers crashing the net on every occasion they could. “We’re 27 minutes into the game and we’ve spent eight of them in the penalty box, so you get no offensive momentum, you don’t get any type of jump and you’re on your heels,” said Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan of the penalties against.

Forward Connor McDavid, who had the assist on Draisaitl’s goal, had the only shot on the power play for Edmonton. One Oiler who is more than well-versed in the Battle of Alberta will be getting his first look from the other side of it tonight. Mike Cammalleri played part of five seasons during two separate stints with Calgary. He’s all too familiar with the long-standing rivalry and the contempt it breeds when the two teams square off.

“You definitely enjoy the intensity of any rivalry matchup and this is a special one,” said Cammalleri, when asked about being on the Oilers side of the Battle of Alberta for the first time. Cammalleri is on a rather short list of only 41 NHLers to ever lace up with both the Oilers and Flames throughout their careers.
