Leon Draisaitl Makes it Rain Hats as Edmonton Oilers Force Game 7 vs. Anaheim Ducks

By Anthony Blake

After getting screwed by a non-call in Game 5, some may have expected the young Edmonton Oilers to dwell on that misfortune and fold as they returned home for Game 6 with their Stanley Cup Playoff lives on the line.

But that was the exact opposite of what transpired, as Leon Draisaitl fueled a first period outburst that set the tone for the Oilers’ Game 6 win.

Two for Draisaitl and FIVE for the @edmontonoilers… in the first period. #StanleyCup

The Anaheim Ducks had absolutely no answer for Edmonton in this one, as Draisaitl’s stack of pucks was only the catalyst for this momentum-swinging victory.

Nice game Leon ??? #StanleyCup
