The game was surprisingly dull for 90% of it. Both teams did a good job of clogging up the neutral zone and limiting scoring chances. The Leafs did a pretty good job at shutting down Connor McDavid tonight as well.
The Oilers opened the scoring midway through the first period. Kailer Yamamoto banked a centering pass off of Jake Muzzin and into the net.

The score remained 1-0 in favour of Edmonton until the third period, when Auston Matthews notched his second goal of the year to tie the game up at 1-1. This is definitely one Koskinen wants back.
