Oilers' Zach Hyman: Two goals not enough

Hyman scored a pair of goals on five shots and added three hits in Monday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Avalanche in Game 4. Hyman cashed in on a couple of primary assists from Leon Draisaitl in this contest. The 29-year-old Hyman's second goal gave the Oilers a 4-2 lead, but it faded away throughout the third period before they lost 1:19 into overtime. The winger finished the postseason with 11 goals, five assists, 67 shots, 44 hits and a plus-4 rating in 16 appearances. He was the Oilers' big free-agent signing last July, and he finished his first year in Edmonton with 27 goals and 27 assists in 76 regular-season outings.

Oilers' Zach Hyman: Keeps scoring in Game 1

Hyman scored a goal on five shots and added four hits in Tuesday's 8-6 loss to the Avalanche in Game 1. Hyman's been unstoppable since the start of the second round, logging seven goals and two assists in his last six games. The 29-year-old winger converted on a feed from Brett Kulak in Tuesday's contest. Hyman is up to nine tallies, four helpers, 56 shots, 35 hits and a plus-5 rating through 13 playoff contests. He may flip between the first and second lines, but there's no questioning his importance to the Oilers' scoring depth behind Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.

How Zach Hyman has been a big part of Edmonton’s playoff success, and a splendid fit with the Oilers overall

The Edmonton Oilers are officially heading to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in sixteen years. It was an entertaining and thoroughly satisfying 5-4 victory (for Oilers fans) in Game 5 on Thursday night, which featured a chaotic moment where both teams scored a combined four goals in merely 1:11, and also a controversial disallowed goal by Blake Coleman. The goal is debatable, but regardless, it’s safe to say Calgary was the 2nd best team on the ice.
