There's starting a game strong and then there's what the Edmonton Oilers did in Game 6 of the Western Conference Second Round against the Anaheim Ducks.

The Oilers put up the five-spot, starting almost immediately when Leon Draisaitl scored less than three minutes into the game.

Draisaitl scored again five minutes later. Just 63 seconds later, Zack Kassian joined the party for a 3-0 lead.

Mark Letestu followed up with two goals of his own and the Oilers were off and running.

The Ducks are no strangers to stringing goals together quickly. You may remember the end of Game 5 of this series, in which they erased a 3-0 deficit in the final 3:16 of regulation and won on Corey Perry's goal in the second overtime.
