On Tuesday night at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida, Edmonton Oilers left winger Evander Kane of Vancouver, British Columbia suffered a brutal injury. Early in the second period, he fell to the ice after colliding with Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Philippe Myers of Moncton, New Brunswick. Before getting up, Lightning forward (who used to play with the Oilers) Patrick Maroon of St. Louis, Missouri accidentally skated over Kane’s wrist. It was a major cut with a significant amount of blood. Kane was able to get up on his own, and was taken to a Tampa Bay hospital, where he will have wrist surgery. It is too early to speculate how long Kane will be out for for. The Oilers are not giving a timetable at this time.

Oilers beat the Lightning 3-2

For the first time since December 9, 2009, the Edmonton Oilers won in Tampa Bay, as they defeated the Lightning 3-2. Ironically, the Oilers win over the Lightning 13 years ago was by the same score. On Tuesday, Oilers captain Connor McDavid of Richmond Hill, Ontario led the Oilers in scoring as he was the only player with a multi-point game (one goal and one assist) for two points. The other Oilers goal scorers were Warren Foegele of Markham, Ontario, who had a shorthanded marker to open the scoring, and Leon Draisaitl of Cologne, Germany, who had a second period power-play marker.
