Draisaitl helps Oilers rout Ducks 7-1 to force Game 7

Draisaitl helps Oilers rout Ducks 7-1 to force Game 7

Watch below: Shallima Maharaj filed this report from Rogers Place early in Game 6 between the Oilers and Ducks in their second-round playoff series on Sunday.

Momentum gained or lost just fades away after the final buzzer.

Talbot set a new team record with 60 saves in a playoff game.

The Oilers were three and a half minutes from a shutout victory in last night's Game 5 against the Ducks.

The former Rocket scored a hat trick and added two assists in a 7-1 drubbing of the Anaheim Ducks. Needless to say that with 3:20 left in a 3-0 game I wasn't expecting a Double OT loss. "We can regroup. I think there's a few guys that need to do soul-searching, including myself". As it went on, they kind of took it to us. "So don't pin any of the Game 7s on me". We're just going to out and play. The Ducks were No. 18, a much better team with leads to maintain than with deficits to chase. The Ducks will get back on the ice Tuesday, but the process to move beyond Black Sunday was well underway.

Draisaitl drives Edmonton's Game Six victory; Letestu, Karlsson, Johansen and more in Scott Cullen's Statistically Speaking. The game starts at 5pm.

"We're just shouting it out everywhere - it's huge".

"We were very, very porous in a bunch of different areas". They know the referees are giving them both a wide lane to do what they need to do and Edmonton, for the most part, hasn't had an answer. It's gone by us.

Doubting Anaheim's bounce-back ability is impossible after what they pulled off in Game 5. Going into Game 6, Fleury has a 2.56 goals-against average and a.929 save percentage. They had their five minutes of outrage after the game, and then parked it. GM Peter Chiarelli, with a chance to scream injustice to anyone who would listen, calmly expressed frustration, not against the league, but over the fact that the calls went against them.

Edmonton was without defensemen Andrej Sekera and Oscar Klefbom, who sustained undisclosed injuries in Game 5 on Friday in Anaheim.

The Ducks already had issues with killing off penalties.

Edmonton was also up 2-0 after the first period of Game 4 at home, only to lose 4-3 in overtime.

The Oilers scored three goals in the final 3:16 of regulation with goaltender John Gibson pulled for an extra attacker to erase a 3-0 Oilers lead and force overtime. It just means the Blues would have to muster a whole lot of strength to win their way two more times.

Perhaps the Ducks learned the hard way that each game has its own theme and personality.

What went wrong for the Ducks, apart from and ice-cold Gibson?

"I think we should", said Cogliano. We dealt with that accordingly and have dealt with things really well along the way. We look on it as mentally we were drained from the emotions of the night before.

Remember, Nashville is still 7-2 in its last nine games and boasts a plethora of standout scorers to threaten anyone left in the postseason.

"That was every member of our hockey club". The Ducks barreled onto the ice to dog pile Perry, while the Oilers trudged back to again try to process what had happened. Whether their star stays buried on the third line is up to Trotz, but he has called out his top players since losing Game 4.

Securing the fourth win has been the Ducks' greatest challenge.

There's a certain anger professional teams feel from time to time, and when they do, the results can be spectacular.

Ducks continue to win almost two-thirds of their face-offs against the Oilers, obviously a major concern because they have the puck more, but the Oilers have still managed to make every game close, whether it's a win or a loss.

And they know the Ducks' history of Game 7s at home is working against them. Each day is a new day.

As he sat on the bench staring glumly, Connor McDavid came up behind him, gave him a pat and said, "Come on, let's go".

"We got the start we needed", Lucic said.
