The Edmonton Oilers escaped Winnipeg with an overtime victory, but it almost didn't happen due to a penalty call that will be erased with a new NHL rule.

After an 0-2 weekend road trip through Ontario, the Edmonton Oilers needed a win, and found it on Tuesday in Winnipeg with an overtime winner from Zach Hyman sealing the deal.
It's a game that didn't come without drama and plenty of storylines for both teams however, with one of the most notable potentially being the final penalty given to a team in this manner. The NHL is preparing to introduce video review for 'friendly fire' high-stick penalties, and with two minutes to go Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was called for a penalty when Dylan Demelo accidentally caught teammate Adam Lowry with his stick.

Thankfully for the Oilers, they were able to keep the game tied at 3 heading into overtime where they would pick up the winner, with this being another example of how badly the NHL needs to introduce rules like this so that they can guarantee the right call on the ice is made, especially in clutch time moments like this.
