Taylor Hall scores, but Devils can't slow down Oilers

Taylor Hall scores, but Devils can't slow down Oilers”

Connor McDavid had three assists to extend his point streak to five games when the Edmonton Oilers defeated the New Jersey Devils 6-3 Rogers Place on Friday. New Jersey is coming off a 2-0 win at Vancouver on Wednesday night.

ABOUT THE DEVILS (9-2-0): Brian Boyle did not dent the scoresheet in his season debut, but the very fact that he was on the ice after being diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia speaks volumes. 8, New Jersey, Gibbons 6 (Butcher, Stafford), 14:25.

The Edmonton Oilers are off to a slow start and the team needs a quick turnaround to prevent falling too far in the standings. In June 2016, Hall was traded to the New Jersey Devils abrubtly ending his career in Edmonton. The Oilers evened the score on Ryan Nugent-Hopkins PP tally before Leon Draisaitl scored for a 2-1 lead that was erased on Conor Sheary's goal with 22 ticks left in the second. A porous penalty kill isn't helping matters as Edmonton yielded two power-play goals to the Penguins to drop its season percentage to an National Hockey League second-worst 68.3 percent heading into Thursday's action.

Evgeni Malkin scored the game victor at 12:23 of the final period with the man advantage to make a victor of Matt Murray and his 35 stops.

Devils are 5-0 in their last 5 road games and Devils are 4-0 in their last 4 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game and over is 9-1-3 in Devils last 13 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game. While McDavid has been an offensive force, the rest of his team would have trouble making that same claim as it is averaging an NHL-worst 2.2 goals per contest this season and has two tallies or fewer in eight of 11 contests this season. 5, Edmonton, Klefbom 1 (Maroon, McDavid), 6:03. Miles Wood sprung through the neutral zone toward goal, where his shot was saved, allowing Hall to swoop in for a goal off the rebound at 15:00. It was the Oilers fourth loss in five games.
