Draisaitl added two helpers and 10 shots on goal in 44:37 of total ice time in Monday's 4-3 triple-overtime loss to Winnipeg in Game 4. Draisaitl had multiple chances to push the series to a Game 5 in overtime, but it took three overtimes and a Kyle Connor breakaway goal to end the amazing seasons of Draisaitl and teammate Connor McDavid. Despite having 84 points in 56 games in the regular season and helping the Oilers get to second in the North Division, the team is going home after losing four straight to the Jets -- three of which ended in overtime.
Draisaitl scored twice on six shots, dished an assist, doled out three hits and blocked two shots in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Jets in Game 3. Draisaitl's pair of first-period tallies gave the Oilers a 2-0 lead. He added a helper on Zack Kassian's second-period goal to restore a two-goal advantage. Draisaitl had been kept quiet in the first two games of the first-round series, but even a strong effort Sunday wasn't enough. The Oilers will face elimination for the first time this spring in Monday's Game 4, and they'll need the German at his best.
Draisaitl notched an assist and five shots on goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Canucks. Draisaitl was excellent during the regular-season portion of May, recording seven goals and 10 helpers in his last eight games. All but Saturday's performance featured multiple points for the superstar. Draisaitl ended the campaign with 84 points (31 goals, 53 assists), 168 shots on net, a plus-29 rating and 32 power-play points in 56 outings. Only teammate Connor McDavid (105) had more points this season. The Oilers' dynamic duo will look to continue their remarkable scoring success versus the Jets in the first round of the playoffs.
Draisaitl registered a power-play goal and added an assist in a 4-3 overtime victory over Montreal on Wednesday. Draisaitl gave the Oilers a 3-2 lead midway through the second period, finding a loose puck and putting it into a wide-open net for his 31st tally of the season. He also set up Dominik Kahun's game-winner in overtime, springing Kahun for a breakaway strike just 27 seconds into the extra frame. Wednesday's performance was the sixth straight two-point game for Draisaitl, who has reached the scoresheet in all seven games during the month of May (seven goals, nine assists). He has 83 points heading into Saturday's season finale.
Draisaitl had two assists and two shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over Montreal. He also won 15 of 20 (75.0 percent) faceoffs. Draisaitl sprung Connor McDavid on a breakaway for the overtime winner, his second helper of the night after earlier assisting on a Ryan Nugent-Hopkins goal. The assists were Draisaitl's 50th and 51st of the season and extended his point streak to six games (six goals, eight assists). He has 81 points heading into Edmonton's penultimate game of the regular season Wednesday against the Canadiens.
