Draisaitl’s OT Winner Gives Oilers Fifth Straight Victory

Leon Draisaitl’s overtime heroics propelled the Edmonton Oilers to a hard-fought 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night, extending their winning streak to five games.

Draisaitl, who has been on a tear lately, scored his second goal of the game just 2:18 into the extra period, assisted by Connor McDavid. The Oilers’ captain also had two assists, extending his point streak to 12 straight games.

The Bruins, who have struggled at home this season, took the lead 4:26 into the third period when Pavel Zacha converted a one-time slap shot from Danton Heinen. However, Draisaitl tied the game with just 1:20 remaining in regulation, setting the stage for his overtime winner.

Edmonton’s defense was stout throughout the game, limiting Boston to just five shots in the third period and none in overtime. Stuart Skinner made 25 saves for the Oilers, while Evan Bouchard had two assists.

The Bruins, who have now lost three of their last four games, were booed off the ice by their home crowd. They have a disappointing 19-7-6 record at home this season.

The Oilers, on the other hand, continue to impress. They have won five straight games and are now 32-19-8 on the season. They will visit the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday.

The Bruins will host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday in a battle of two Original Six teams.
