Winnipeg Jets goaltender Laurent Brossoit took responsibility for his team’s 4-3 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night.
The game was heading for extra time, but Leon Draisaitl decided otherwise. With less than a second to go, the German put the puck in the back of the net.
“[Connor] McDavid was obviously in full possession of the puck. He sent her ahead of the net. I didn’t think that [Draisaitl] could put the disc between my pads, considering Andrew Copp was on the floor. I was only trying to follow a puck that would have been shot through the top of my net. She finally went under me, ”said the native of British Columbia, during the press conferences following the game.
It was Brossoit’s second start this season, as he maintained a 1-1-0 record, 3.46 goals-against average and .911 save set.
In this clash, forward Kyle Turris scored his first goal in the Oilers uniform. In the second half, he put his team forward 2 to 1.
“It feels good,” said the center. I obviously did not contribute as much as I would like and I had to make changes. It was a nice pass from Zack Kassian who cut in the middle and he fed me well on the right wing. I just tried to take a shot and put it in. ”
Last fall, Turris saw his contract be bought out by the Nashville Predators and signed a two-year deal with the Alberta club.
The goal he scored against the Jets was his first point in seven games. He has also maintained a -5 differential since wearing the Edmonton squad uniform.
