The Montreal Canadians’ defense should be wary of Connor McDavid on Saturday and Monday, as the Edmonton Oilers scored their first hat-trick of the season in the National Hockey League.
After the Oilers’ 5-2 victory over the Vancouver Conkes, “I end up with a blue line and I don’t see him coming at full speed”.
“He has a gift that no one else has with his speed, hands and intelligence,” Droysight also boasted.
McDavid famous Canucks defenseman Alexander Adler looked bad on his second goal on Thursday night. Shea Weber, Ben Chierot, Jeff Petrie, Joel Edmondson, Brett Kulak and Alexander Romanov are all looking forward to the next few matches.
“This season we want to find ourselves, get into the third period and continue our lead, because his part suggested McDavid after the meeting. I liked our way to score the fifth goal and finish the game.”
By the time Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had finished scoring with his second goal, the Oilers were already leading 4-2 after two seasons. Although four assists were collected, Drocytl was not left statistically.
Edmonton, then Vancouver
The Canadians and Oilers will meet for the first time in Edmonton on Saturday, followed by another showdown on Monday. It will be interesting to see if goalkeeper Jake Allen Hobbs gets one of two starts in front of the net.
Next week, CH will visit Conax in Vancouver three times in four days.
