Oilers out of Stanley Cup playoffs as Golden Knights use Marchessault’s hat trick to win Game 6

The Edmonton Oilers have been eliminated from the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs following a 5-2 loss to the visiting Golden Knights on Sunday. Vegas clinched a spot in the Western Conference finals by winning the series in six games.

Reilly Smith scored early to put Vegas up 1-0, but Edmonton finished the first period on top after Connor McDavid and Warren Foegele replied. Jonathan Marchessault came alive in the middle frame, scoring a natural hat trick to lift the Golden Knights to a 4-2 lead. William Karlsson added a late open net goal.

The Oilers won game 2 on the road and game 4 on home ice, while Vegas took games 1 and 5 in the U.S. and games 3 and 6 in Canada. 

Vegas will face either the Seattle Kraken or the Dallas Stars, who will play the seventh game in their series on Monday.

The Florida Panthers, who eliminated the Toronto Maple Leafs in five games in the second round, and the Carolina Hurricanes will play for the Eastern Conference title.

More to come.
