OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Devin Shore broke a tie with 7:02 left, Mike Smith made 39 saves and the Edmonton Oilers beat the Ottawa Senators 3-1 on Thursday night to sweep the nine-game season series.
“There’s always going to be games when maybe you’re not feeling your best or the other team gets some bounces,” said Smith, who improved to 14-3-2. “To get 18 points against one team is obviously pretty impressive.
“It can get repetitive playing the same team over and over again. Teams find ways to combat your offence and find different ways to try and score goals, but we’re just finding different ways to win.”
Kailer Yamamoto and Jesse Puljujarvi, into an empty net, also scored for Edmonton.
