Oilers Blow out Golden Knights in the Season Opener at Rogers Place

2018-02-12

Edmonton, Alberta CA

5....4....3....2...1....So it began!

New chapter in Oilers franchise history began yestreday at Rodgers Place. New seaseon, new expectations. And the audience should be pleased with a result. 8 goals against 1 in season opener against Golden Knights. Captain Connor McDavid finished this game with six (0+6) points, Patrick Maroon scored three goals with one assist (3+1). It should have been a shootout, but Vadim Shipachyov scored in 3rd. But nevertheless the debute is very impressive. We asked McDavid and Maroon after the game about their perfomance and team perfomance:

Connor McDavid: It's amazing. In front of our public, at our homestand, 8 goals, so now I realize that it's great, but our goal is not winning only 1 game, our goal is to win the las game of the season, and if we don't do it, nobody will remember this 8-1 or another 10-0 and so on. We have a lot to play, it's just a beginning. Thanks for supporting!

Patrick Maroon: 3 goals? Ask our captain how I scored them (smiling). Accurate passes, I just needed to shoot and score. Playing in one line with Connor is amazing, he knows everything 1-2 steps further than the opponent, so I think even a tree should score 20+ goals playing with McDavid (smiling). I'm not a tree:) Goals for a season? Guys, let us have a rest. We wanna win every game, but we respect our opponents, so it would be very tough season.

We thank Oilers players for speaking with us, wish them good luck! See u next time!
