For at least one game, the move paid off.
Roughly 14 hours after the Edmonton Oilers replaced Todd McLellan with Ken Hitchcock, the team earned the third-winningest coach in NHL history his 824th win by beating the Sharks 4-3 in overtime at SAP Center Tuesday.
Leon Draisaitl scored the winner just 51 seconds into the extra session, batting in a pass from Connor McDavid, who earned three points on the night.
