Series highlights: Oilers and Evander Kane humiliate Golden Knights
There was just one more playoff game on the schedule last night in the National Hockey League, as the Edmonton Oilers and Vegas Golden Knights faced off for a second game.

The Golden Knights won the first game 6-4.

Edmonton was looking to bounce back last night and tie the series.

1. Oilers completely dominate Vegas to tie series

Jay Woodcroft’s team needed to win last night to avoid returning to Edmonton with a 2-0 series deficit, and that’s exactly what they did.

Indeed, the Oilers quickly imposed their rhythm on the game, and it quickly became apparent that it was going to be a one-sided affair.

After one period, the Oilers led 19-4 in shots, and 4-0 in scoring.

Leon Draisaitl (x2), Connor McDavid and Evan Bouchard scored all four goals.

Draisaitl’s 13 goals are already the most he scored in last season’s playoffs.

Nathan MacKinnon and Evander Kane scored 13 goals each.

Here’s the goal from Bouchard, who has really established himself as an excellent offensive defenseman since Tyson Barrie’s departure.

And while Draisaitl is stealing the show for the Oilers, don’t forget Connor McDavid, who can do it all.

The 97 also scored another goal in the second period.

The Oilers didn’t give the Golden Knights a chance last night, which left Peter DeBoer’s team very frustrated.

Of course, as you can see from the footage, Evander Kane was at the center of the skirmishes.

He also landed a few dirty blows to Keegan Kolesar’s body, even though the latter was already on the ground.

Kane received a 10-minute game misconduct for these blows.

Towards the end of the sequence, we can also see that it’s not just Knights players who are frustrated, but Vegas fans too.

An angry lady can be seen waving her fingers at Evander Kane, who in turn gives her a big kiss.

What a legendary photo.

Here’s the footage for those interested.

Note also that the Oilers’ social media were quick to use this photo.

Here’s Kane’s reaction to it(click here to see his full post-match comments).

In short, the Oilers are confident right now, and they showed it last night with a great win.

The rest of the series will be very interesting.

The series is tied 1-1.
