The Oilers restarted the engine

The Edmonton Oilers celebrated their third straight victory by defeating the Seattle Kraken 2-1 on Saturday at Climate Pledge Arena.

The Alberta club had experienced a series of three defeats before this new streak of success began. Remember that Connor McDavid and his gang won 16 games in a row between December 21st and January 27th.

In today's game, the Oilers' famous number 97 provided an assist on his team's first success, a goal by Leon Draisaitl. McDavid has been involved in at least one of his teammates' goals in his team's last 10 games. However, his streak of games with at least two assists ended at six.

The other goal for the Edmonton club was the work of Brett Kulak. Eeli Tolvanen scored a power play goal in the third period, but the Kraken failed to complete the comeback.

In net, Stuart Skinner stopped 24 pucks in the win, while Philipp Grubauer made the same number of saves in the loss.

The Nashville Predators won 5-1 against the Colorado Avalanche at Bridgestone Arena.

The Tennessee club secured their eighth win in a row and will try to extend this series next Tuesday evening against the Montreal Canadians.

It was Cody Glass who led the charge against the Avs. The 24-year-old striker hit the goal three times. It was his first career NHL hat trick and the first time he scored more than one goal in a game.

The other goals for the Preds came from Ryan O'Reilly and Tommy Novak. Both men scored on the power play.

The visitors' only goal was scored by Nathan MacKinnon.
