Note: If you turned the TV off after 40 minutes with the Jets leading 4-1 you were probably a happy camper but hockey games are 60 minutes (or more). The Oilers scored two quick goals to open the final frame and then tied it up late in the 3rd to force OT which they ultimately won. It was the Connor McDavid show as the Edmonton phenom was dominant throughout the contest impacting all four Oiler regulation goals. The Jets are scheduled to practice today at 12 noon at Bell MTS Place.
