“I was hoping we would have some energy tonight, but it got to us,” said Oilers coach Dave Tippett. “They had energy, but we did not. Do you hope your team pushes to new levels, և finds a way to advance, և you can never find excuses, but there are times when your team just does not have it և there is not enough energy in the group. The evening was one of those times. “

After the invulnerable first round, the “Flames” invaded the second, making 10 shots with four goals.

Monahan got his first deal since March 13, shattering the drought of 13 games. On the edge of the net alone, he capitalized on the oil defense mix պաշտպան 3. On the 12th he transformed the transfer of Andrew Mangiapane.

“I put a lot of pressure on myself to become an ordinary boy, someone who would take offense,” Monahan said. “When you do not do it, it becomes frustrating. “When you don’t score for a moment, որեն obviously it was the first game of the game, it feels good.”

As Cal grew, Calgary gained confidence. They put pressure, it worked 10. In the 43rd minute, when Godro made a perfect pass from Noah Hanifin through the fold, he beat Smith 2-0 from a solid angle.

Calgary limited Edmonton to very few dangerous opportunities. Conor McDavid finished the game with one shot.

“We did a good job staying on their skilled guys,” said Monahan. “When you do that, you kill fines, you do not allow those high-class guys to be touched, it will be disappointing. I thought we did a good job at that. “

In the third period, the oil workers increased the pressure, but could not solve the Markstrom. Tyson Barry came closest when he fired a shot from the goalpost.

Ritchie took the lead in the score և making the score 5-0.

Immediately after falling out of his nose, there was some confusion, which may have been related to the Uylers’s card, as Calgary coach Daryl Sutter was talking to officials from behind the bench.
