When we saw the Oilers leading at the end of the first period and increasing their lead at the end of the second period, we did not pay a high price for the Canadians.
The law of equalization will eventually lean towards the Hubbles.
“We have made several returns. It happened that our inability to win in overtime was equal to scoring. The head coach of the Canadians recalled that it left a bitter taste. Tonight [lundi], We achieved a good return in the third stage.I think we deserve it [la victoire]. »
Strangely, since the start of the campaign, the contribution of the newcomer Eric Staal has shaken the doom of the Montrealers caused by overtime.
“I like his game. To score in the first overtime, it is difficult to have a better start. I am happy for the victory, happy for him. I am happy that he can enter like this,” Ducha Mu said.
Staal not only contributed to the victory with his goals. His impressive butt efficiency percentage (77.8%, 14 of 18 shots) went a long way in preventing the dangerous Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl from having the ball for too long.
In addition, despite adopting new offensive methods, he is still strong defensively.

“It is certain that having two goals is not enough. This is the person in charge that I met in the morning. It is a matter of time. I would rather not think about it too much.”
In the hope of swaying the ropes, Druin will have to pull the net more. Even if he is a game maker in the first place, in this regard, he pointed out that the surgery on his left wrist in November 2019 may still be a hindrance to him.
“I don’t have the previous wrist.” He said: “I didn’t have any pain, but I didn’t go back to the previous game. “
