Highlight Recap: Oilers at Blue Jackets

New, comments

Here’s what happened.

NHL: Edmonton Oilers at Columbus Blue Jackets Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports

Cam Atkinson made his return from a healthy scratch. Would it make a difference? SPOILER: no

First Period

A David Savard turnover in the defensive zone led to a wide open goal from Zack Kassian. The Blue Jackets started slow, but the final five minutes were solid. Best chances came from the PBJ line.

Second Period

Four goals by Edmonton. I have nothing else to say.

Third Period

Oliver Bjorkstrand and Jack Johnson added consolation goals before Jesse Puljujarvi put it away. For hilarity, McDavid scored with two minutes to go.

Final
