Senators lose 4-2 to Draisaitl and McDavid

The Senators played maybe their best game of the season against the Oilers, but still lost thanks to the heroic one-two punch of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Draisaitl played the role of goal-scorer tonight, completing his hat trick into an empty net with 0.7 seconds left on the clock.

The big story before the game was the return of Marcus Högberg to the lineup, after missing two months with an injury. I spent years conducting the Högberg hype train, and wrote off some of his early struggles this season as being stuck behind a bad team, but it was hard to argue with consistent results from him.
