Oilers surge past Bruins for 4-1 victory

Oilers coach Dave Tippett didn't question the officials' decision to issue Eichel a penalty shot, by saying Klefbom got in too tight on the Sabres' captain.

Chris Kreider, Ryan Strome, Marc Staal, Artemi Panarin and Mika Zibanejad scoredfor the Rangers (19-16-4) who saw a two-game winning streak come to an end.

David Pastrnak became the first player this season to reach 30 goals in the Bruins' 2-1 overtime loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday, extending his point streak to nine (four goals, 10 assists).

"By no means is it me beating him", Eichel said, of splitting McDavid and defenceman Oscar Klefbom at the Oilers blue line, before being hooked by Klefbom on his way to the net. "Obviously you want to contribute to the team's success. But our team played a great game". It was Buffalo's first power-play goal in seven games, ending an 0-for-17 skid. Linus Ullmark made 32 saves.

The Bruins are 14-1-9 at home. "I would say since coming back from the break I think our team's performed fairly well, but we haven't gotten results".

Coach Ralph Krueger didn't have an update on Oloffson status following the game. Hockey is a game of mistakes.

The Florida Panthers go to Buffalo, New York, to take on the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday at the KeyBank Center.

Connor McDavid made matters worse just 1:48 into the third period, as he found all the space needed to turn on the jets and beat Halak for his 23rd goal of the season, and that was really all she wrote on this one.

Edmonton countered in the second period, though, and with some help from the Bruins, as Gaetan Haas pounced on an egregious Jake DeBrusk turnover and put in the back of the Boston net at the 7:41 mark of the frame. "We capitalized on a couple of chances".

It was almost four years ago in Buffalo when Jack Eichel and Connor McDavid met for the first time in an National Hockey League game, one that turned out to be an overtime thriller the Oilers won because of McDavid.

The 24-year-old is in his first full season in the National Hockey League. Play stopped, he went to the bench and returned for his next shift.
