The last five-game stretch hasn'tbeen kind to the Edmonton Oilers, who've gone 1-3-1, droppingfour of their last five, but their performance on Wednesday proved they are still, ultimately, on the right track.Leon Draisaitl had a memorable night, putting up two goals Roberto Alomar Jersey and an a sist, while Connor McDavid extended his point streak to four games en route to an impre sive 4-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.With the win, the Oilers improved to 9-4-1 andmove to 19 points on the season, leading the entire Western Conference.

Leon Draisaitl takes NHL scoring leadbecause he's Leon DraisaitlLeon's still Leon, and he had yet another star-studded performance against the Blue Jackets. Histwo tallies not only extended his goal-scoring streak to four games he has six goals over that span but also tied David Pastrnak for the league lead in goals with 12. But even more impre sively, his three-point performance moved him to first in NHL scoring with 25 points.His first of the night came with under three minutes to go in the opening frame,where he scored on a one-time rocket to make it 2-0.

Edmonton gets much-needed secondary scoringNot only did the stars shine for the Oilers on Wednesday, but they also had names beyondMcDavid, Draisaitl and Neal chipping in.Considering Edmonton had managed just seven goals over its last five games Justin Smoak Jersey including being shutout twice head coach Dave Tippett shook up the lines, promoting bottom-6 forwards Jujhar Khaira and Sam Gagner to the second line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.They made the most of their opportunity.Khaira padded the Oilers' leadwith his first of the season, where he tapped in the puck that was sittingon the goal line as hecrashed the net.Khaira gets his second of the game and gives Edmonton the 3-0 lead.First attempt got through Korpisalos five hole and then was left untouched on the goal line for the tap-in. Alison (@AlisonL) Gagner also managed an a sist, his first point since being recalled from the Bakersfield Condors, where he was a signed after a rough showing at training camp.Alex Chia son also got on the scoresheet with a helper on Draisaitl's first-period tally.Beyond the scoresheet, Khaira and Gagneralso put theirchemistry and grit on showcase with their speed and aggre sion.Khaira perhaps made the biggest impact on that line, though,finishingthe night with five hits and two shots in 15:27.3. Mike Smith bounces backThe last few games haven't been kind to Edmonton's goaltenders, especially not Mike Smith.Heading into Wednesday's game, he'dallowed three Joe Carter Jersey goals in each his last two starts and waspulled in the Oilers' 6-2 lo s to the Panthers after surrendering three tallies on 13 shots. However, he rebounded on Wednesday with a solid showing, giving him amuch-neededconfidence boost.Smith finished the game with 23 saves on 24 shots his only surrendered goal being a power-play tally which was good for a .958 save percentage. Not only that, but he also found ways to get involved beyond the crease, makinga Marcus Stroman Jersey stretch pa s early on that got the Oilers in the offensive zone on the power play and served as the catalyst for Neal's goal.That streeeeeeeeetch pa s by Smith. Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) The 37-year-old netminder advanced to 4-3-1 over eight games this season with a 2.29 GAA and .919 save percentage. His GAA is tied for 10th in the league with Robin Lehner.Given his play as well as Koskinen's Edmonton seems to have stability in the net for the time being, as well as a defense corps that isworking well in tandem.With a rough five-game patch behind them, the Oilers need to take advantage of their opportunity to keep the momentum going and run with it if they want to win.
