Zach Hyman scored his 50th of the season but his Edmonton Oilers were beaten 5-3 by the Ottawa Senators on Sunday.

The Oilers took the lead less than four minutes into the game when Mattias Ekholm set up Adam Henrique for his 20th of the season. Ottawa replied on the power play less than two minutes late with Drake Batherson using a perfect saucer pass to set up Jacob Chycrun.

The Oilers scored two power play goals in the first four minutes of the second period. Leon Draisaitl took a feed from Evan Bouchard and ripped home a sharp angle one-timer. Then Hyman scored his historic goal by camping out at the side of the net and tapping in a pass from Connor McDavid. Tim Stutzle popped a shot past Calvin Pickard’s blocker to cut the Oilers lead to 3-2 just over a minute later. Batherson tied it on a power play late in the second.
