NHL 3 Stars: Leon Draisaitl, Connor McDavid combine for 11 points
Florida refuses to lose in regulation but it was Edmonton and Ottawa who saved the best for last.
They had the two highest goal totals of the night on Sunday and the played each other. The Oilers beat the Senators 8-5 to cap off the night.
Statistics for the game were ridiculous. The game set an NHL season-high for goals scored in a single game, the teams combined for 24 assists and 37 point and Edmonton didn’t score in the third period.
However, Dominik Kahun scored the first goal of the game at 0:08 of the first period.
Stuart Skinner won his first NHL game in his first career start.
Dominik Kahun opened the scoring at 0:08 of the first period to match the @EdmontonOilers record for fastest goal from the start of a game, a mark set by Wayne Gretzky on Dec. 14, 1983. https://t.co/pl1wnnhCgW #NHLStats pic.twitter.com/V3p6NLJxD8— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) February 1, 2021
