Oilers win without point from McDavid, Draisaitl for 1st time since '17
It marked the first time since Nov. 28, 2017, versus the Arizona Coyotes that Edmonton won a contest when neither Connor McDavid nor Leon Draisaitl recorded a point, according to Sportsnet Stats.
The Oilers were 0-26-2 when their dynamic duo was held off the scoresheet over that span.
McDavid and Draisaitl both had three shots on goal Tuesday but saw their 10-game point streaks come to an end. The two still rank first and second in league scoring, with 27 and 25 points, respectively.
Defensemen Darnell Nurse, Evan Bouchard, and Tyson Barrie provided the goals Tuesday.
While Edmonton was victorious, Ottawa was by far the better team at five-on-five. The Senators owned 64.52% of shot attempts, 65.85% of scoring chances, and 66.41% of expected goals, according to Natural Stat Trick.
