German ice hockey star Leon Draisaitl was beaten by the Vegas Golden Knights despite a goal and an assist with the Edmonton Oilers in the NHL.

The Oilers lost their home game 3-4 (1-2, 1-0, 1-1) after overtime and conceded their first defeat after five victories. Draisaitl prepared the 1:1 equalizer in the first third and equalized in the second round in a majority game to make it 2:2. Edmonton also caught up from a deficit in the third period, two and a half minutes after the start of overtime the Oilers conceded the 3-4.

The Oilers remain third in the Pacific Division and a playoff spot, but their lead over the Seattle Kraken has shrunk to three points. German goalkeeper Philipp Grubauer scored a 7-2 (2-0, 1-1, 4-1) thrashing of the Nashville Predators with Seattle.

Kraken Team Record

Seattle allowed just one shot on Grubauer’s goal in the early part, setting a team record. “That’s the third you want to win. It was a damn good away game from us,” said Grubauer about the 2-0 lead after the first round. The goalkeeper parried 14 of the total of only 16 shots on his goal.

Tim St├╝tzle has little chance of making the playoffs with the Ottawa Senators. Despite two assists from the 21-year-old German, the senators were beaten by the New Jersey Devils 3:5 (1:1, 2:2, 0:2). Lukas Reichel scored his fourth goal in the NHL, but the native of Nuremberg lost 3-1 (0-0, 0-1, 1-2) with the Chicago Blackhawks against the Minnesota Wild.

Even for Nico Sturm it was not enough to win despite a goal, with 3: 5 (1: 2, 2: 1, 0: 2) his San Jose Sharks lost at the Calgary Flames. JJ Peterka scored a 2-0 (0-0, 0-0, 2-0) win over the New York Islanders with the Buffalo Sabers, while Moritz Seider and the Detroit Red Wings lost to the Philadelphia Flyers 0-3 (0 :0, 0:2, 0:1).
