Kreider was able to get a piece of the shot as it came in on goal, and deflected it back into Mikko Koskinen.

The Oilers can’t buy a win right now.

The Rangers defeated the Oilers by a score of 4-1. It’s an especially tough pill for the Oilers to swallow, as the Rangers were playing their second game in two nights. They were also down their leading scorer in Artemi Panarin, and Alexandar Georgiev was in between the pipes.

Didn’t really matter. The Rangers took advantage of an early miscue by Mikko Koskinen and never looked back. The Rangers were ready to play, even though they took care of the Tampa Bay Lightning the night previous. The Oilers fell behind early and were forced to play catch-up, but couldn’t cover enough ground. Edmonton made it interesting for about eight minutes of the second period, but the Rangers put up two more goals in the third to shut the door.

Strome scored less than three minutes later when his cross-ice pass redirected in off Oilers defenseman Tyson Barrie to give New York a 4 - 1 lead at 14:11. Edmonton was limited to two power plays after getting none in a 3-2 overtime loss at the New York Islanders on Saturday.

GAME STORY: Oilers 4 , Rangers 1. Another come-from-behind victory for Edmonton as they extend their season-opening win streak to five games in the Big Apple. by Ryan Frankson / EdmontonOilers.com. The German superstar then tucked home the empty-netter for the 4 - 1 final to secure his fourth tally and 11th point. The Oilers will conclude their four-game road trip on Monday night against the Chicago Blackhawks, who dropped their first two games of the season and are hosting the Winnipeg Jets tonight.

Things got off to a less-than-auspicious start when Mikko Koskinen cleared the puck over the glass just fifteen seconds into the game, giving the Rangers a power play. They didn’t convert, but they picked up a goal on a miscue by Mikko Koskinen just three minutes after the conclusion of the power play when Alexis Lafreniere potted one from Ryan Strome.

The Oilers would finish the first period with just six shots on goal against a Rangers club that shut out the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday. End of 1: Rangers 1, Oilers 0.

Things didn’t get much better for the Oilers in the second period. Less than four minutes in, Barclay Goodrow took a pass from Alexis Lafreniere and made it 2-0 Rangers.

Sportsnet viewers got a look from the other side tonight as the usual crew was out due to Covid protocols. The Rangers’ crew over at MSG did an excellent job of breaking down this goal. Duncan Keith made an aggressive pinch in the Rangers’ zone and the puck took a wild bounce off the stick of Warren Foegele, allowing Lafreniere to speed through the neutral zone and into the Oilers’ end. Cody Ceci had Lafreniere, but Duncan Keith was two strides away from Goodrow. Goodrow scores his seventh of the season.

Nelson Cruz Is Still Booming

  Nelson Cruz Is Still Booming Baseball’s late-blooming, ageless wonder is still going strong in his 40s. View the original article to see embedded media.In a red suit, Nelson Cruz sat between Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred and Roberto Clemente’s son Luis before Game 2 of the World Series. A month earlier, the 41-year-old was nominated for the Roberto Clemente Award for the second straight year and the third time in his 17-year career.

The Oilers moved within one point of Winnipeg for second place in the North Division with a game in hand. “It was a tight, playoff-style game,” Edmonton coach Dave Tippett said. “I liked the way we stayed with it and got the win.” Montreal tried to take the body against the Oilers — especially early — but The Oilers appeared to take the lead at 12:01 when McDavid snapped what would have been his first goal against the Canadiens in 2021, but Montreal challenged for goaltender interference on Price. Smith stopped Staal on a 2-on- 1 rush with the blocker before Montreal’s power play — 2 for 31 over its past

Oilers 4 , Rangers 1 . ℹ Stats. Goals: Klefbom, McDavid, Drai (x2). Good job being 5-0 but it is too soon to say if this year’s Oilers will be a lot different than previous teams. Let’s see how they are doing 1 / 4 and then 1 /2 through the season. I will say that I think their offensive depth has improved with the likes of Granland, Neal, etc and they definitely have some promising rookies playing important minutes every game.

What else do we got?

The good guys picked up a goal late in the second. The ice tilted a bit for the Oilers, and a streaking Tyler Benson put one on the blade of Ryan McLeod with six minutes remaining in the period.

The Oilers get a badly needed goal from the bottom six. McLeod’s fourth goal of the year cuts the Rangers’ lead in half. Maybe we see a little more of Benson, he’s averaging under eight minutes a game this year. Enjoy this goal, there aren’t any more for the Oilers in this one. End of second: NYR 2, EDM 1.

The third period began with much fanfare. Ryan McLeod would go off early for a tripping penalty. On the ensuing power play, Chris Krieder tipped an Adam Fox shot from the blue that would squeeze out of Mikko Koskinen.

Even though that was a deflection by Kreider in front of Mikko, you know Koskinen would love to have that one back. Every goal that ends up in your net counts against you, and this one’s no exception. The Oilers are down 3-1 at this point, this one was a deflater.

Kyle Seager Never Got the Recognition He Deserved

  Kyle Seager Never Got the Recognition He Deserved It was perhaps the only way for Kyle Seager to go out. No fanfare. No press conference. Just a short statement from Seager that his wife, Julie, posted on her Twitter account Wednesday. “Today I’m announcing my retirement from Major League Baseball. Thank you to all of my family, friends and fans for following me throughout my career. It’s been a wonderful ride but I am unbelievably excited for the next chapter of my life.” © Provided by Sports Illustrated Joe Nicholson/USA TODAY Sports As early as this spring, before the season began, Seager was considering retiring at the end of the year.

The New York Rangers finish off their season-series with the Edmonton Oilers in a Monday night contest at Madison Square Garden (TV: MSG - Radio: ESPN 98.7 FM). The Blueshirts finish their seventh back-to-back of the season after a win yesterday against Tampa Bay. From Dec. 15, 2015-March 3, 2018, New York won five straight games against Edmonton. 2021-22: Nov. 5 at EDM (OTL, 6-5) In the first game of the season, the Rangers found themselves up 4 - 1 going into the third period where the Oilers tied it up and sent it to overtime.

The Rangers play the second of a back-to-back set at Madison Square Garden against the Oilers coming off a home-and-home sweep against the Lightning. New York (21-8-4) became the sixth team in the NHL to win 20 games this season by defeating Tampa Bay 4-3 in overtime Friday. 11 of their past 16 games (11- 4 - 1 ). After facing the Oilers , the Rangers start a five-game road trip (Vegas Golden Knights, Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks, Philadelphia Flyers) and don't return home until Jan. 19. -- Jon Lane, staff writer.

Another deflection? Ryan Strome? This goal has a little bit of everything. Jesse Puljujärvi gets a pass off the boards to Warren Foegele, who is unable to get the puck into the Ranger zone. It’s Adam Fox who gets the puck to Ryan Strome. Strome tries to get it across the ice to Barclay Goodrow, but the puck deflects behind Mikko Koskinen off of Tyson Barrie’s skate.

It’s 4-1 Rangers in the dying minutes. It doesn’t get better, but the game finally ends. Rangers 4, Oilers 1.

AFTER SIXTY MINUTES

  • Tippett is 0-8-2 in his last ten games, his last win was 32 days ago against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The club played a team that was in action last night, and they put up a whopping six shots in the first twenty minutes. Did I mention the Rangers didn’t have their leading scorer in Artemi Panarin tonight?
  • This game was not a strong one for Mikko Koskinen. Taking a delay of game penalty fifteen seconds into the game wasn’t a strong start, he got caught out of position on the Rangers’ first goal. I don’t know if the Oilers plan on playing Ilya Konovalov in the next few games, but I’d be interested in seeing a bit more Stuart Skinner if you don’t mind.
  • The Strome-Goodrow-Lafreniere line was a killer for the Rangers tonight. Strome finished with three points (1-2-3), Barclay Goodrow had two (1-1-2), and Lafreniere had two points (1-1-2).
  • Something nice: The Oilers need to play Benson and McLeod for more than seven minutes a night. McLeod’s goal was set up by a beauty pass from Tyler Benson. I got a wild idea that won’t likely happen: maybe the OIlers call up Cooper Marody and put him on the same line as these two guys. Wild, I know.
  • Rangers backup netminder Alexandar Georgiev turned aside 33 of 34 shots en route to his sixth win of the season.
  • The Oilers are in trouble. They will look to cobble together a win in Toronto on Wednesday in order to save the road trip, but are 0-2-2 through the club’s first four games. The Kings are just one point behind the Oilers with the same number of games played, the Sharks are three behind. The Canucks were thought to be left for dead early in the season. Since hiring Bruce Boudreau, they’ve gone 8-0-1 to pull themselves to within three points of Edmonton.

The OIlers are 0-2-2 on their road trip, they visit Toronto on Wednesday looking to salvage something from their five game road trip.

Wisconsin Democrats, Republicans both want Ron Johnson to run .
At a time when Democrats and Republicans can agree on little, they find themselves in rare consensus in Wisconsin: Seemingly everyone there wants Sen. Ron Johnson (R) to run for a third term.Democrats view him as vulnerable, pointing to provocative comments on the coronavirus, 2020 election, racial justice protests and more, and are eager for him to take another crack at the Senate. Republicans see in Johnson a battle-tested incumbent who has twice proven his mettle in a key swing state.
