A legendary comeback Sunday night has given the Winnipeg Jets an opportunity to knock the Edmonton Oilers out in just five days of post-season action. The Jets took Game 3 in overtime by a 5-4 score with Nikolaj Ehlers scoring the game-winner 9:13 into sudden death hockey. Ehlers both opened and ended the scoring for the Jets in his return to Winnipeg’s lineup.

Now Connor McDavid and Edmonton Oilers will be playing for their season Monday night after an unthinkable turn of events. Game 4’s puck drop is slated for 9:45 p.m. EST.

The Oilers were cruising to a Game 3 victory on the road, leading 4-1 with under 10 minutes to go. But the Jets became the 10th team in NHL history to win a playoff game after erasing a three-goal deficit in the final 10 minutes of regulation. Goals from Mathieu Perreault, Blake Wheeler, and Josh Morrissey got the Jets to overtime and Ehlers finished the job there. Wheeler’s and Morrissey’s goals came within 16 seconds of each other.

The Oilers’ collapse ended their seven-game winning streak on the road and also marked the eighth time in their last 11 trips to Winnipeg where the has over hit.

Oddsmakers have made Game 4 a pick’em with the total at 5.5.

Edmonton Oilers

Sunday’s Game 3 loss is even tougher to swallow considering both McDavid and Leon Draisaitl got on the board with three-point nights. McDavid recorded three assists in the first two periods, while Draisaitl scored the game’s first two goals and added an assist.

Edmonton’s star forwards each reached over 25 minutes of ice for the second straight second game which will make for some tired legs in a back-to-back situation. Darnell Nurse once again led all skaters with 31:18 of time played.

It’s an uphill battle for the Oilers, but Edmonton ended the regular season with six straight wins over Winnipeg. The McDavid-era Oilers remain unproven in the post-season and now’s the chance for Dave Tippett’s squad to make history.

Winnipeg Jets

The Jets sure don’t look like a team that lost nine of their final 12 regular season games. In fact, Winnipeg looks like a team primed to be a tough out thanks to their Vezina-caliber goalie and offensive abilities. Connor Hellebuyck stood tall with 44 saves in Game 3 and has a .916 save percentage this series.

Pierre-Luc Dubois picked up two assists and a team-high four shots in his second playoff game with the Jets, while Morrissey also put forth a multi-point game with a goal and an assist. Winnipeg also went two for three on the man advantage in Game 3 and are now scoring on 40 per cent of their power plays this series.
