Nugent-Hopkins notched a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Maple Leafs. Nugent-Hopkins' pass attempt bounced fortunately off of Jesse Puljujarvi and straight to Leon Draisaitl, who buried the tally. It was ultimately the game-winner, as well. Nugent-Hopkins has been uneven throughout the year, with a three-point game and three scoreless outings prior to Wednesday. He's on four points, 19 shots and a minus-2 rating through five contests.
Nugent-Hopkins had two goals on eight shots and dished an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canucks. Nugent-Hopkins scored the Oilers' first and fifth goals, with the former being a power-play tally. He also had the secondary helper on Connor McDavid's hat-trick-clinching tally in the second period. Those two first overall picks compose two-thirds of the Oilers' top line -- Nugent-Hopkins should have no trouble generating offense most nights, especially if he and McDavid are on the same page.
Nugent-Hopkins scored a goal on a game-high nine shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 4. Nugent-Hopkins flung four more pucks on net than the next-closest Oiler (Oscar Klefbom, 5). Despite the high-volume shooting, Nugent-Hopkins only scored once, his second goal and eighth point in the series. He finished the abbreviated playoff run with 22 shots and a minus-2 rating despite his otherwise high scoring pace.
Nugent-Hopkins posted a power-play helper and six shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 3. Nugent-Hopkins had the secondary helper on Connor McDavid's tally in the final seconds of the second period. The assist gave the 27-year-old Nugent-Hopkins seven points through three games, although he's added a minus-3 rating as well.
Nugent-Hopkins posted three assists, one on the power play, in Monday's 6-3 win over the Blackhawks in Game 2. Nugent-Hopkins had a hand in all three of Connor McDavid's tallies in the contest. Both forwards have collected six points in two games -- Nugent-Hopkins is at a goal and five helpers. The 27-year-old should continue to post big scoring numbers as long as he stays on McDavid's line.
