Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Best Team In The NHL

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

The best record in the National Hockey League. The best power play in the National Hockey League. The best player in the National Hockey League.

How on Earth could it get better for the Edmonton Oilers? How about the best weekend on tap on the National Hockey League, as the Oilers will play a round of golf in Las Vegas on Saturday and take in the Raiders-Philadelphia Eagles NFL game Sunday before flying back to Edmonton.

But for now they’ll savour their first statement game of the season, as the Oilers walked into Vegas on the back end of two games in two nights and glazed the Golden Knights 5-3. These are the two teams that will battle for first place in the Pacific Division, or so we would predict, and as the Oilers' weekend in Vegas begins they have 10 points (5-0) while the Golden Knights have just two after a sluggish 1-3 start.

What’s going right with Connor McDavid’s boys? Well, how about everything?


Game highlights are below.
