Vancouver (AP) - The national ice hockey players Leon Draisaitl and Dominik Kahun are in the NHL playoffs with the Edmonton Oilers after a 5-3 win at the Vancouver Canucks.

Record scorer Draisaitl provided the templates for the first and last goal, Kahun scored with a solid shot to make it 4: 2 and his seventh goal of the season.

The Canucks, who did without Marc Michaelis, received a setback for their playoff hopes through the defeat.

Tim Stützle was also able to record a victory in the Canada Division, the Ottawa Senators won 2-1 against the Winnipeg Jets.

The Minnesota Wild around Augsburg's Nico Sturm turned a 3: 5 with three goals in the last third to a 6: 5 against the Vegas Golden Knights in the duel of the already qualified teams from the West Division.

Philipp Grubauer was also able to celebrate a comeback victory with the Colorado Avalanche.

The Avalanche turned the interim 2: 4 against the San Jose Sharks into a 4: 4 in the last third and won the game 5: 4 in overtime.


There was an insignificant victory for the playoff scenarios for the Buffalo Sabers at 4-2 against the already qualified New York Islanders.

The Sabers already have no chance.

The Boston Bruins, however, made their participation perfect by beating the New Jersey Devils 3-0.

In the East Division, the Washington Capitals, the Pittsburgh Penguins as well as the Bruins and Islanders have all four playoff participants.
