On Wednesday night, the Edmonton Oilers and Vegas Golden Knights resumed their best-of-seven series in Edmonton.

The Oilers had a strong start, taking an early lead and maintaining their advantage to win 4-1.

The game was quite intense, particularly towards the end, when Vegas defenceman Alex Pietrangelo was penalized with a five-minute major for delivering a nasty slash to Oilers star Leon Draisaitl as he attempted to score on an empty net.

Draisaitl's teammate and captain Connor McDavid got involved trying to go after Pietrangelo for that despicable act.

The good news for Oilers fans, Draisaitl appears to be okay, but the NHL Department of Player Safety should definitely review the incident.
