In a bid to revive the Edmonton Oilers' season after a slow start, head coach Jay Woodcroft made significant changes to their lineup.

The key move was grouping star players Evander Kane, Leon Draisaitl, and Connor McDavid on the same line to boost offensive capabilities during 5v5 play. While it was initially uncertain whether this would be a long-term solution, it showed promise as the Oilers secured a dominant 6-1 win.


Woodcroft's strategic changes, aimed at revitalizing the chemistry between McDavid and Draisaitl, had an immediate positive impact on the team.
