Cowboys' Mike McCarthy 'business as usual' after appendix surgery, expected to coach Sunday night vs. Eagles - CBSSports.comthe  Both teams committed several penalties, which the officials chose to overlook. However, at 6:38, Jeremy Lauzon held down Leon Draisaitl, giving the Oilers a powerplay. When Lauzon went down before Draisaitl, I initially believed that Draisaitl was receiving a penalty, and I could hear the building’s patrons jeering. I was perplexed until the play proceeded because during the commercial break, I could hear Rogers Place playing the music that plays when the Oilers get a point. Following a feed from Draisaitl, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored on that penalty kick with a fast shot. The goal’s secondary assist went to Connor McDavid. Zach Hyman was given a penalty for making a fast drive towards the goal.

Hyman was set up by Connor Brown with a fantastic feed out of the defensive zone, and Nashville’s Alexandre Carrier did a great job of limiting Hyman to simply a spin move, forcing the puck to miss the net. I was impressed with Corey Perry in his first 20 minutes with the Oilers. Already, he was causing trouble and stirring things up in front of the net. Dylan Holloway and Ryan McLeod both benefited from it, and he was put on the second unit of PP as well. Perry will score goals from those opportunities near the goal as he becomes more used to Edmonton. In all, the Oilers had a 9–7 advantage in shots on goal.

Hyman made a clever backhand feed close to McDavid, who hit the post. Next, Hyman failed to capitalize on a clear opportunity next to the goal after Draisaitl’s assist. A minute later, Holloway hurriedly advanced with the puck, attempting a strong move on Luke Schenn, but his shot missed Lankinen. Stuart Skinner gave Filip Forsberg a lot of opportunities during the day, and after a cunning move on Nugent-Hopkins, Skinner was taken down, but Forsberg fired the puck beyond of the net. Although none of these opportunities were designated as shots on goal, in my opinion, they were among the best of the entire match. Lauzon was given his second penalty of the encounter.

line, but his squad benefited greatly from that error. After the Oilers kept circulating the puck, McDavid found Draisaitl to score the second goal, 2-0. In addition, Draisaitl’s second goal marks his 800th NHL point. The second goal is credited to the same trio of players who were responsible for the first. Darnell Nurse received a penalty shortly after. The Predators couldn’t close the gap in the score. The crowd gave Vincent Desharnais a standing ovation after his diving play in the penalty kill. Ryan McDonaugh, a defenseman, came in under the faceoff dot and had a fantastic opportunity to score. Skinner developed yet another outstanding Conserve. Dumped in behind Nashville’s net was the puck. A misunderstanding that occurred between Lankinen and Roman Josi gave Brown the opportunity to pass to Mattias Janmark behind the net. With the stop, Lankinen saved himself and kept the score at two goals. The Predators led in shots on goal in both the second and third periods of play, 9–6 and 16–15, respectively.
