McDavid Leads Oilers To Wild OT Win, Coyotes Still Winless

Jonathan Grant | November 6th, 2021

Sometimes you just have to do it yourself if you want the job done right. That’s what Connor McDavid did for the Edmonton Oilers on Friday evening to tie the game up against the New York Rangers and force overtime. Down 5-4 with less than three minutes on the clock, McDavid took matters into his own hands, scoring a sublime goal to even up the score. It was his only goal of the night, but he also added two assists, including one on Leon Draisaitl’s OT winner.

Better yet, it helped Edmonton come back from a 4-1 hole they had dug for themselves in the second period. Jesse Puljujarvi had two goals to his credit, helping them draw level at four apiece before Mike Zibanejad had restored a one-goal advantage for the visiting Rangers. But it was McDavid and co.’s night, leading the Oilers to their best-ever start through ten games in franchise history. Meanwhile, a dubious bit of history was being set by the Phoenix Coyotes as they fell for the 11th straight game. Adam Henrique had a goal and an assist for the hosting Anaheim Ducks. Henrique’s goal came just 34 seconds in and signaled that the Coyotes were in danger once again. It is the second-longest losing run in the history of the NHL, only lagging behind the 1943-44 Rangers team.
