1) Svechnikov’s great week continues

After scoring two goals in two periods and playing a key role in Monday’s win over Seattle, Svetnikov stepped up tonight’s performance. The #37 struck twice in the middle stanza in two consecutive contests, scoring his fourth and fifth goals of the year.

Both showed off his elite-level shots, the first coming after the Edmonton defense paid him a little too much respect following a normal zone entry.

The 22-year-old Russian then doubled in just over 11 minutes and cashed in while taking an Oilers defender one-on-one.

However, the difference between the two games was that the scoring didn’t stop in the second. The Russian-born Barnaul finds his pack loose on his play of power in the 3rd, defeating Jack his Campbell his third and earning his share of the league lead with his sixth goal of the year. Did.

3) Emphasis on Special Teams

Tonight’s Special Teams ‘Glass Half Full’ look will be the second straight game in which Keynes scored multiple goals on a power play. The “glass half empty” aspect is that the team was on special teams and he allowed three, two with his man advantage and he allowed one shorthanded.

Frederick Andersen Although playing his role early on to keep the game scoreless, the Oilers opened the scoring with a power play goal.

1:38 Draisaitl capitalized on a power play after Svechnikov brought Canes back within one to make it 4-3.

Had they managed to win the special teams fight, or at least had Edmonton failed to get half of their offense through the opportunity, the contest could have had a different outcome.

Rod Brindamore On Andrei Svechnikov’s performance tonight and what he saw at tonight’s contest…

“He was pretty dominant. That line was good. He was really great. We didn’t have much from anyone else. It wasn’t enough. We gave them two You can’t just pass a team’s goal, especially this team, and that’s what made the game different for me.”

Andrey Svechnikov Providing comments on his night…

brinda mall Continue with the special team on how it affected the results…

“You can’t give up a short-handed goal. I knew that. Everyone saw it coming. [The Edmonton forward] I picked it up there and played well. That’s the problem. It’s easy to just pull your hand out and nothing happens, but that’s what Edmonton is doing to you. To me, that’s what makes the game different. I think we both made a good power play, but gave up shorts, that’s the game.”
