Leon Draisaitl will try to extend his goal-scoring streak to six straight games for the Edmonton Oilers against the Arizona Coyotes at Rogers Place on Monday.

He also has 10 points (seven goals, three assists) during a five-game point streak.
It will be the first game for Oilers coach Dave Tippett against the Coyotes, who he coached for eight seasons (2009-10 to 2016-17).
Arizona is 7-2-0 in its past nine games and plays the first of a back-to-back Monday. The Coyotes play at the Calgary Flames on Tuesday.

They said it
"He's the best. He's such a good guy and he's a fun guy to be around and listen to. He's played over 1,000 games so any kind of knowledge you can get from him is good. He's good guy to have around and we're lucky to have him." - Coyotes forward Conor Garland on Phil Kessel
"Our goalies have been huge all season. They've been great and probably kept us in some games we shouldn't have been in. It's very comforting and it's nice to have them back there, they've been really good for us." -- Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl
