Kane’s goal, as well as four goals from Leon Draisaitl and Zach Hyman who scored two goals each, lead the team to the fourth winning in a row with a 7-2 score against the Montreal Canadians on Saturday. Kane opened the score at 11:21 of the first period
Kane gave the Oilers a 1-0 lead at 11:21 of the first period when he tipped Evan Bouchard’s point shot. He commented that it was ‘nice to contribute on a new team coming in and show what you can do’.
The second goal was scored by Draisaitl, who has already scored thirty-one goals this season alongside Chris Kreider from the Rangers.
Draisaitl scored 24 seconds later to increase the lead to 6-2. He has scored 31 goals this season, which is tied for the NHL lead with Chris Kreider of the New York Rangers.
Derek Ryan scored the last goal of the matchup.
