This is Edmonton, Alberta. On Saturday, the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Nashville Predators by a score of 4-1,
Connor McDavid posted a goal and three assists, and the Oilers won their 16th consecutive game to move within one of tying the record for most consecutive victories in the National Hockey League.
When the Edmonton Oilers return from the All-Star break to play the Vegas Golden Knights on February 6, they will put up an effort to tie the record that was established by the Pittsburgh Penguins during the 1992–1993 season.
For the second-longest stretch, the Oilers tied the record set by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2016–2017 season.
What McDavid had to say about the situation was, "It's exciting, obviously it's a great run, obviously the goalies have played great.
Even though we didn't play our best hockey this past week, we still managed to pull off three victories, which is a really encouraging indication.
The goalie has been excellent, the back end has been strong, and the kill has been fantastic; all of these are positive aspects.
The Edmonton Oilers improved their record to 29-15-1 with the efforts of Leon Draisaitl, who not only scored but also assisted on two goals, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Zach Hyman, and Stuart Skinner, who made 28 saves overall.
