Pietrangelo leads Blues past Oilers as St. Louis stays atop NHL's West

Jaden Schwartz, Robert Thomas, Tyler Bozak and Ivan Barbashev also scored for the defending champion Blues.

"We just find a way to get it done", said Thomas, whose team had won its previous three outings in overtime. "We are successful a good deal of two-1, 3-two game titles and shut game titles at the finish".

Blues goalie Jake Allen made 32 saves to improve to 3-1 on the season.

"I've felt like I've been getting better every game to be honest than at the start of the year", he said. "I felt a lot more comfortable and it felt good to get a lot of action and obviously it was good to get the win and the guys battled hard".

Connor McDavid and Zack Kassian scored for the Oilers. They have shed two in a row.

Considering the team is still getting very good goaltending, however, from both Mike Smith and Mikko Koskinen - and that Draisaitl continues to play at the very highest National Hockey League level alongside McDavid, plus we're seeing more secondary scoring - there is reason to believe these aren't last season's Oilers, which saw things go sideways come mid-December. "This was a playoff recreation and clearly we have a long way to go". We have to find a way to win these games because there are going to be many of them this year. We're likely to perform a great deal of excellent groups and we have to be prepared. "They performed final night time, we gave them a minimal bit much too substantially and it price us". St. Louis responded with a power-play goal of its own six minutes into the first when Schwartz tipped Pietrangelo's point shot past Mike Smith. St. Louis added to its lead with 5 minutes remaining in the middle period when Thomas beat Smith to the glove side.

Bozak's quick-handed vacant-web target went into the internet on a blessed bounce in advance of Barbashev additional a different brief-handed vacant-netter.

NOTES: St. Louis obtained ahead Jacob de la Rose from the Detroit Purple Wings on Wednesday evening in exchange for ahead Robby Fabbri. The 24-calendar year-outdated de la Rose had a intention and a few assists in 16 video games for the Pink Wings this season.

Artemi Panarin and Ryan Strome also had a goal and an assist apiece, and Chris Kreider and Greg McKegg scored to help NY win for the fourth time in six games. The 23-yeae-old Fabbri had a goal in nine games for the Blue this season. He has 32 targets and 41 helps in 164 standard-season game titles, all with the Blues. He appeared in 10 playoff games last season to help St. Louis win the Stanley Cup.
