Devils' Taylor Hall scores first goal against Oilers

Hall had an assist in the Devils' 3-2 overtime loss at Edmonton on January 12, the second time the teams had met in six days and a stretch Hall acknowledged as "stressful". The Devils are listed with a money line of +165, while the over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals.

National Hockey League action comes to Rogers Place when the Edmonton Oilers host the New Jersey Devils.

New Jersey tied the game five minutes into the second period as a Bratt spin-around shot hit the post and caromed into the net to make it 2-2.

The Devils are rolling right now, as they have won three straight and six of their last seven.

Edmonton made it 4-2 with 1:04 to play in the middle frame as a rebound hit Lucic while he was driving to the net and bounced in.

Drew Stafford added a pair of helpers for New Jersey who received 37 saves from Cory Schneider for his first shutout of the season an 24th of his career in lifting the team to a 5-0-0 record on the road.

It was a visibly relaxed Taylor Hall that met with the media after the Devils morning skate on Friday at Rogers Place, a stark contrast to how he reacted on January 12 in his first trip back to face the Oilers as an opponent. While the Devils have been ascending in the Eastern Conference standings, the Oilers - a trendy Stanley Cup pick by several publications - have dropped two in a row on their five-game homestand and eight of 10 overall. Edmonton is now 3-7-1 on the season and 2-5 at home. Last season - his first with New Jersey - Hall faced Edmonton twice but he wasn't able to score a goal.

The Oilers added some insurance with seven minutes remaining in the third period when McDavid made a flawless pass to Draisaitl at the side of the net for his third of the season. He has a 3.10 GAA and a.904 save percentage.
