  1. EDMONTON [url=http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-matt-murray-jersey]Matt Murray Jersey[/url] , Alberta (AP) — This time, the Edmonton Oilers showed off their high-powered offense.Leon Draisaitl scored twice and Connor McDavid had a goal and three assists, leading Edmonton to a 7-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Friday night.Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Zack Kassian, Alex Chiasson and Darnell Nurse also scored for the Oilers. Draisaitl assisted on Nurse’s goal in the third period.Cam Talbot made 31 saves to earn back-to-back victories after dropping his six previous starts.Edmonton (15-12-2) won for the fifth time in six games. But the Oilers had scored just six times in their previous three outings, including a 4-1 loss at Dallas on Monday night.“Offense is something that comes in waves, and for whatever reason we haven’t been able to find it, but we’ve been solid defensively,” McDavid said. “It doesn’t really matter how good your offense is if you’re only giving up two a night. You’re going to be in the game. It was nice to get a few tonight.”Oilers coach Ken Hitchcock improved to 6-2-1 since replacing Todd McLellan last month.“I think for me and for the players, scoring seven goals is more of a relief and it makes you feel good for all the hard work you’re putting in and it becomes an easier sell for me now,” Hitchcock said.“The reward is worth all the work so we’re going to keep pushing that forward.”The Wild (15-12-2) lost for the fifth time in six games. Marcus Foligno and Nino Niederreiter scored [url=http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-olli-maatta-jersey]http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-olli-maatta-jersey[/url] , and Alex Stalock made 22 stops in relief of an ineffective Devan Dubnyk.“I’m concerned about every aspect of our game,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said.“After 18 games we were third in the league defensively and now I am afraid to look where we are. It is just unravelling right now. It is on us as a coaching staff and a team to right this ship and get them back learning how to play great defense again, because that is what is going to win you games, not trying to score five goals a night.”Edmonton got on the board on its second shot when McDavid fed Draisaitl for his 14th goal of the season 4:14 into the first.The Oilers made it 2-0 when Dubnyk couldn’t corral a bouncing puck and Nugent-Hopkins slipped it into net at 7:44.Edmonton scored its third goal on six shots less than a minute later when McDavid got his 15th of the season, ending Dubnyk’s night.Minnesota got on the board just past the midway mark of the first period when Foligno got a screened shot past Talbot.After a scoreless second period, Edmonton regained a three-goal edge on a long-distance shot by Kassian.The Wild got a goal back when Niederreiter tipped a puck past Talbot 7:32 into the third.The Oilers made it 5-2 midway through the third when McDavid set up Draisaitl for his second goal of the game.NOTES: Wild captain Mikko Koivu was unable to play after taking a knee-on-knee hit from Mark Giordano in their game Thursday against the Calgary Flames. … Minnesota forward Zach Parise played his 900th NHL game. … Forward Valentin Zykov made his debut for the Oilers after he was claimed off waivers from the Carolina Hurricanes last week.UP NEXTWild: Host Montreal on Tuesday.Oilers: Host Calgary on Sunday. MONTREAL (AP) — Jaroslav Halak had a strong game against Montreal and former teammate Carey Price, and helped the Boston Bruins get a big road win.Halak stopped 22 shots for his third shutout of the season as the Bruins beat the Canadiens 4-0 on Monday night.Halak got his 45th career shutout and improved to 5-0-0 when facing Price.“It’s always nice to get a shutout,” Halak said. “From the drop of the puck, we played pretty good. For 60 minutes, we didn’t give them much. Our (penalty kill) did an outstanding job not to give them anything. … It was a team effort from top to bottom.”Joakim Nordstrom, Colby Cave [url=http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-patric-hornqvist-jersey]Womens Patric Hornqvist Jersey[/url] , David Krejci and Brad Marchand scored for the Bruins, who snapped a two-game skid and leapfrogged the Canadiens for the first wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. Boston was on the second game of a back-to-back after losing 4-2 in Buffalo on Sunday.Price, vying for his 300th career victory, finished with 31 saves as the Canadiens lost for just the second time in seven games. Montreal was shut out for just the second time this season, and first time since Oct. 11 against Los Angeles.“I don’t think there’s a whole lot that needs to be said,” Price said. “There’s no excuse for that. It was a perfect opportunity to get a big win for our team but we’re going to have to park that one real quick.”The Canadiens failed to capitalize on three power plays, extending their slump to 0 for 25 over nine games dating back to Dec. 1. Montreal turned the puck over 24 times and their 22 shots on goal were a season low.“I don’t think we were good anywhere on the ice tonight,” Canadiens captain Shea Weber said. “There’s no excuse for that. We’re letting each other down. Guys have to look at each other in here and know that we all have to be better for each other.”The Canadiens looked sloppy in the first period, turning the puck over 11 times over the first seven minutes.The Bruins responded with their first goal at 2:21 after Michael Chaput’s turnover in his own zone. What followed was a give-and-go between Cave, David Backes and Nordstrom, who beat Price from the slot for his fifth.Boston made it 2-0 late in the second period when Cave scored his first NHL goal with 26 seconds left. The 23-year-old [url=http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-phil-kessel-jersey]Phil Kessel Jersey[/url] , playing his 16th career game, was left alone in the slot with the teams playing 4-on-4.The Bruins’ David Pastrnak scooped up the puck after the goal and brought it to the bench.“It feels really good, especially in a winning effort,” Cave said. “We played an unreal game as a team tonight. We rolled four lines, all three defensive pairings played good and Jaro was a brick wall back there. A recipe for success.”The Bruins picked up right where they left off in the third, scoring 46 seconds in. A defensive collapse by the Canadiens gave Krejci time and space at the side of the net for his sixth.The Bruins added to their lead when Marchand scored Boston’s fourth, on the power play, at 5:06. David Pastrnak made a clever pass on the goal, his second assist of the gameNOTES: The Canadiens recalled D Victor Mete after the game and assigned Noah Juulsen to the Laval Rocket. … Montreal D Jordie Benn was a healthy scratch for the first time this season. … It was the third of four meetings between the Canadiens and Bruins this season, with the road team winning each time.
