Draisaitl scores shootout winner to lift Oilers over Canadiens
MONTREAL — Leon Draisaitl was the lone scorer in a shootout as the Edmonton Oilers ended a three-game losing run with a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday afternoon. The win helped Edmonton (29-18-8) end a three-game road trip with a victory despite scoring only one regulation time goal. The Canadiens (30-16-8) are 1-3-1 in their last five games. The five-minute overtime saw Montreal goaltender Al Montoya stop Connor McDavid on a clean breakaway, while Cam Talbot managed to keep out a Shea Weber blast at the other end. After coming close early when Alexei Emelin hit a cross bar, the Canadiens generated little on attack until picking up the pace in the third period. The Oilers had a 30-20 shot advantage in regulation time and outshot Montreal 32-22 overall.
