How Canadian NHL teams fared last night
Oilers' Hall paces attack, Nugent-Hopkins out long-term
The Oilers, Senators and Jets were in action on Monday night. Here's a quick look at how they fared:
Hall of a victory
Taylor Hall posted the 12th multi-goal game of his NHL career, scoring twice and adding an assist in a 4-2 Edmonton Oilers victory over the hometown Florida Panthers. Teddy Purcell added a goal and two assists and Cam Talbot made 31 saves, none bigger than a late-game stop against Dmitry Kulikov.
Oilers centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins exited the game in the second period with a hand injury that head coach Todd McLellan says will keep him out long-term.
Ottawa snapped San Jose's five-game win streak and Zack Smith scored on a penalty shot to force overtime, but it's the health of Mike Hoffman that will be on the minds of many following the Senators' 4-3 shootout victory. The third-year forward left the game early in the second period after crashing into the Sharks goalpost with his right shoulder.
Craig Anderson made 32 saves in regulation and OT before denying Joe Pavelski, Joonas Donskoi and Logan Couture in the shootout.
Home not so sweet
Carl Soderberg had a goal and assist while Semyon Varlamov turned aside 36 shots in a 2-1 Colorado victory over the Jets in Winnipeg. Joel Armia scored the lone goal for the Jets, who received a 32-save performance from Connor Hellebuyck and have dropped three of their first five home games in a stretch of nine of 10 at MTS Centre.
Jarome Iginla had the other Avalanche goal, No. 602 of his career to move ahead of Jari Kurri into 18th place in NHL history.
