NHL Recaps:  November 1, 2022

The NHL hosted a dozen games on their schedule for Tuesday night.

Leon Draisaitl put on a show registering 5 points as the Edmonton Oilers rolled over the Nashville Predators for their 5th straight win. In Vancouver, the Canucks couldn’t handle the red-hot Devils, who are surprisingly tied atop the Metro Division with the New York Rangers.

We start our recaps in Pittsburgh where the Penguins blew a 5-2 lead and lost to the Boston Bruins in OT.

NHL Recaps: Bruins rally by Penguins

Bruins 6 vs Penguins 5 (OT)

Hampus Lindholm went coast to coast and scored from the left hash marks at 3:37 of overtime Tuesday as the visiting Boston Bruins erased a three-goal deficit to win their sixth straight, 6-5 over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“I’ve been feeling pretty confident about my game, so I knew it’s a 60-minute hockey game,” Lindholm said. “Fell behind there a little bit early, but 60 minutes of hockey, so you just try to stick with it. Tonight’s one of those nights where it went our way.”

Chris Kreider’s breakaway goal with 52.8 seconds left in overtime lifted New York to a shutout victory over visiting Philadelphia.

After the teams were scoreless in regulation, Mika Zibanejad collected a loose puck in the Rangers’ end and flipped it to Kreider, who was streaking down the middle of the ice. Kreider took the pass and slipped a backhander past goalie Carter Hart for his fourth goal of the season.

Kreider’s goal extended the Rangers’ winning streak to three games and dealt the Flyers their third loss in the past four games, though the past two setbacks came in overtime. New York goalie Igor Shesterkin made 19 saves. Hart stopped 35 shots.

Devils 5 vs Canucks 2

Nico Hischier’s goal early in the first period sparked another wire-to-wire collective win for red-hot New Jersey, which beat host Vancouver.

“We kind of had a set play,” Hischier said. “Bratt is able to shoot, or if he sees something, he obviously can pass, and luckily he saw me there.”

Michael McLeod, Dawson Mercer, Yegor Sharangovich and Jack Hughes also scored for the Devils, who have won four straight — their longest winning streak since they won their first four games of the 2018-19 season. Mackenzie Blackwood made 21 saves for the victory.

Bo Horvat scored twice off assists from J.T. Miller for the Canucks. Vancouver goalie Thatcher Demko stopped 32 shots.

Jonathan Toews scored in the third period for the Blackhawks, who have lost four straight (0-2-2). Backup goalie Arvid Soderblom recorded 28 saves in relief of Alex Stalock, who stopped two shots before exiting following a collision with Islanders right winger Casey Cizikas 2:56 into the first.

Oilers 7 vs Predators 4

Leon Draisaitl had a goal and four assists to help host Edmonton beat Nashville for its fifth straight win.

“I thought it was really good offensively,” Draisaitl said. “Sometimes when you go up early in a game like that, by three or four goals, those games can be hard sometimes because you naturally just let off the gas. They are a good team that can score and make plays, but I thought we did a pretty good job.”

Connor McDavid had two goals and two assists, Evander Kane had a hat trick and Jack Campbell made 19 saves for the Oilers.

The Coyotes, who play 20 of their first 24 games on the road while a locker room annex is being finished, are slated to play in the 5,000-seat arena on the Arizona State University campus for at least the next three seasons until a proposed new arena in Tempe is built.

Frank Vatrano, Ryan Strome and Max Comtois also scored and Anthony Stolarz made 39 saves for the Ducks, who have won two in a row for the first time this season but remain the only NHL team without a win in regulation.

Erik Karlsson had three goals and an assist, Timo Meier scored two goals and Kaapo Kahkonen made 39 saves for San Jose, which is 1-2-1 in the past four games.
