If you thought two penalty shot goals — one by Edmonton Oilers centre Leon Draisaitl on James Reimer and the other by Florida Panthers winger Evgenii Dadonov on Cam Talbot — in the same game Monday night was crazy stuff, you’re right.
It’s never happened before, according to Bob Waterman, the ace at the Elias Sports Bureau.
“No, going back to 1934-35 when penalty shots started. They were rare (called) to start with and there still aren’t a lot called, maybe 50-to-60 in an entire season now,” said Waterman. “To get two in one game and one scored for each team … that’s a first.
“We’ve only had two successful penalty shots in the same game by the same team three times. The first was Feb. 11, 1982 when Tomas Gradin and Ivan Hlinka scored for Vancouver against Detroit. On Dec. 30, 2009, Ryan Clowe and Joe Thornton scored for San Jose in a game. Then March 19, 2017, Luklas Sedlak and Brandon Dubinsky scored for Columbus on New Jersey’s Cory Schneider.”
There’s been 35 penalty shots called this NHL season with 14 goals.
Last season, there were 44 called with 14 goals.
The Oilers have had 41-career penalty shots going back to their first by Stan Weir March 29, 1980.
They’ve scored 13 goals (eight for 23 at home). They’ve been successful on their last four attempts in Edmonton — Taylor Hall on Tampa’s Ben Bishop Oct. 20, 2014, Andrew Miller on Dallas’s Kari Lehtonen March 27, 2015, Connor McDavid on Calgary’s Brian Elliott Oct. 3, 2016 and the one by Draisaitl after he was tripped on a short-handed breakaway by Mike Matheson.
Ryan Smyth is the only Oiler in history with more than one (two). Weir, Dave Lumley, Wayne Gretzky, Craig MacTavish, Doug Weight, Jarret Stoll, Marc Pouliot, Hall, Miller, McDavid and Draisaitl round out the list.
The Oilers have given up 12 goals in 44 career penalty shots. Just six at home.

Craig MacTavish makes book
Craig MacTavish, now the Oilers senior VP of hockey operations, amazingly found his way onto page 20 of the current best-seller The Force by Don Winslow — a dazzling read about cops and drug wars in New York.
“The night the Rangers won the Stanley Cup was one of the happiest nights in Malone’s (cop Denny) life. The Rangers were holding a one-goal lead by their fingernails and Craig MacTavish — God bless Craig MacTavish — kept getting the puck deep in the Canucks’ zone and time ran out and the Rangers won the
Slepyshev shows signs of life
Oilers winger Anton Slepyshev has shown signs the last week that he’s offensively back to where he was late last season and in the playoffs. A nice breakaway goal on John Gibson in Anaheim, and a shot under the crossbar on Reimer late Monday. The one on Reimer was his first at home this season. He scored Nov. 9 in Brooklyn, but that was it until his recent efforts.
“His game in Anaheim was the best of this season. It was a good night for him against Florida too. If there’s some positives out of this loss, it’s his play,” said Oilers coach Todd McLellan.
No man advantage against Panthers
The Oilers didn’t get a power play against Florida, only the second time that’s happened this season.
The other was in Washington Nov. 12. They thought they deserved one when the Panthers cleared the puck over the glass but the referees ruled the puck found its way into the alleyway between the player benches and couldn’t determine exactly how it got there.
“They said it went through the opening,” said McLellan. “Frustrating when there’s 25 people on the bench all saying the same thing (penalty) and they wave it off and there’s all this emotion. That wasn’t the difference in the game, though.”
The Panthers were all over McDavid with Florida’s Vincent Trocheck whacking him three times before he set up Patrick Maroon’s goal, but no penalty calls.
“I’m not looking to tear the refs down, that’s the last thing I want to do. They’ll always call what they see, that’s the bottom line. They’re the boss and they’re doing the best job they can,” said McDavid, who has 12 points his last six games.
This ‘n that: Oilers farmhand Mitch Callahan, signed last summer as a free-agent to play in Bakersfield, has been suspended 20 games for using a performance enhancing substance.
“We are very confident that the violation was a simple oversight by Mitch and was not done to gain a competitive advantage,” said Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli in a statement. Callahan has had a miserable season with two goals and nine points in 45 AHL games.
