2024 NHL Playoffs bracket: Stanley Cup Playoffs schedule, Oilers strike first with 2OT win over Stars

The Edmonton Oilers kicked off the Western Conference Final with a dramatic 3-2 double overtime win over the Dallas Stars Thursday night.

Connor McDavid went from goat to hero when he chipped a pass from Evan Bouchard past Stars goalie Jake Oettinger just 32 seconds into the second overtime. That made up for an egregious miss in the first overtime when McDavid missed a yawning cage and hit Oettinger’s stick instead.

Edmonton did have to overcome a little bit of adversity after coughing up a 2-0 lead, allowing Dallas to tie the game with under four minutes left in regulation. The Oilers did show impressive composure and managed to keep their wits about them, even when American Airlines Center was rocking.

Oilers goaltender Stuart Skinner also deserves a lot of credit. He was benched for two games last series, but he put together a great showing tonight, turning away 31 of the 33 shots that the Stars threw his way.
