Video: Oilers’ Klefbom scores first NHL goal in OT win over Ducks

Mar 29, 2014, 1:30 AM EDT

Oscar Klefbom‘s first National Hockey League goal gave the Edmonton Oilers the lead in the third period, and they eventually went on to defeat the Anaheim Ducks by a final score of 4-3 in overtime.

This season hasn’t been filled with too many good times for the Oilers. But Klefbom’s goal was the combination of good finish from the rookie defenseman, who jumped into the rush and buried a pretty pass from David Perron. That gave the Oilers the lead in the third period.

They went on to win on an overtime goal from Andrew Ference, his third of the season. Oh, and goalie Ben Scrivens was good for Edmonton. Good, of course, is an understatement. He made 48 saves on 51 shots, seven of which came in the extra period.

“It’s always fun to win in overtime… I’m happy for Oscar to get his first and for our captain to step up. It was huge,” Scrivens said afterward, as per the Oilers’ Twitter account.

    Scrivens was a MONSTER in net. Hats off to him for that effort…

    Cam Tucker, I’ve seen teenage high school dropouts with a better grasp of the written word than the poop skids you produce for PHT. If sports journalism were an Olympic event, you might make the Special Olympic team….MIGHT. Please give up this pipe dream of a career, and consider moving back into your parent’s house and never procreating. Thanks.

    “Oh … and Ben Scrivens was pretty good in goal for Edmonton too”


    Judge: Counsel for the Truth, do you wish to add anything further ?

    Blomfeld: not at this time your honor …

    Judge: very well then, the court deems comrade Scrivens to be a ‘top 5’ in the NHL !

    The Gallery: Hurray ! Hurray ! Hurray ! :) :) :)
