Oilers' Leon Draisaitl takes goal push to Vegas

The Edmonton Oilers will play their 20th game of the season on Saturday afternoon when they finish up a three-game road trip with a Pacific Division showdown against the Vegas Golden Knights at Las Vegas.

Normally playing the 20th game during an 82-game regular season isn't a big deal. But thanks to the play of Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl this one is.

Draisaitl, who had two goals and two assists in Edmonton's 5-3 victory at Arizona on Wednesday, leads the NHL in points (40), goals (20), power play goals (10), game-winning goals (six) and multiple goal games (eight). He's also the first player to hit the 40-point mark before the 20th game of the season since Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr did it in 1995-96.
