Ryan Nugent-Hopkins registered an assist in Edmonton's 4-3 overtime loss to Buffalo Tuesday night.

Nugent-Hopkins recorded a point for the third time in the span of four games. He now has four goals and 13 points in 28 contests in 2016-17.

Connor McDavid collected his 11th multi-point game of the season during Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sabres.

Simply amazing. The sophomore phenom is now up to 25 helpers and 36 points in 28 games thus far in his first season as Captain. Seems safe to say that he's pretty good at the hockeys.
Dec 6 - 10:27 PM

Drake Caggiula is heating up, as he collected his first two-point game of his young career.

The rookie center is now up to four helpers and five poitns in just 10 games through Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Buffalo. He also saw 17:42 of ice time, easily the most of the season for him. If he can keep this up, the Oilers will be able to argue they have the most talented line of centermen in the game.
Dec 6 - 10:23 PM

Leon Draisaitl now has goals in three of his last four games.

Draisaitl picked up his 11th tally of the season during the 4-3 overtime loss to the Sabres on Tuesday. He's now up to 22 points in 28 games thus far, and he's scored four goals during the current span.
Dec 6 - 10:20 PM

Milan Lucic, the man scores goals.

Lucic picked up his eighth tally of the season during Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sabres. It gives him 20 points in 28 games this season. He also led the team with six shots on net. While the veteran power forward is shooting below his 14.6% career shooting percentage, he's still well on his way to his second straight and fifth career 20-plus goal season.
Dec 6 - 10:16 PM

Jordan Eberle potted his first goal in eight games on Tuesday against the Sabres.

The goal gives him eight on the season with 21 points to boot over 28 games this season. The young veteran however recorded just four helpers during the cold streak, achieved in just two separate games.
Dec 6 - 10:12 PM

Cam Talbot faltered late in the game to serve up Buffalo's 4-3 overtime win.

Talbot was beaten by Evander Kane with 29 seconds to go to knot the game at three, then Rasmus Ristolainen beat him just 57 ticks into the extra frame to seal the deal. He stopped 22 of 26 in the game, including six of eight while on the kill. The loss drops Talbot's record to 13-9-3 with a 2.64 GAA and .914 save percentage.

Benoit Pouliot is a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Pouliot has just one goal in his last 17 games. He served as a healthy scratch in November, but that didn't spark him. Anton Slepyshev and Dillon Simpson will also join him in the press box.

Jesse Puljujarvi will be back in the lineup on Tuesday night.

He is projected to play with Drake Caggiula and Zack Kassian. Puljujarvi has been scratched for the last three contests.
Dec 6 - 2:27 PM

Cam Talbot will tend to the crease on Tuesday versus Buffalo.

He has won his last two starts to give him 13 victories in 24 appearances so far this season. Talbot has posted a 2.55 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage.
Dec 6 - 2:22 PM

Zack Kassian isn't too focused on his point total.

Kassian has two points in his last three games after going on a 15 contest scoring drought. "At the end of the day, our job is to defend well and play hard and create energy. The points are a bonus," Kassian said. "When we do chip in offensively, it’s a bonus and it helps the team, but if at the end of the night if we don’t get a goal … that’s not what we look at. Were we physical? Were we hard to play against? Did we create energy? Did we get on the forecheck? Those are the things on a night to night basis that we need to be good at." Kassian does have some offensive potential, but if you're taking him in a standard fantasy league then odds are you're looking at his PIM. He has six points and 34 penalty minutes in 24 contests this season.

Connor McDavid went through concussion protocol Sunday.

The NHL has concussion spotters now and the one in Edmonton misread a signal that McDavid gave and had the referees send him to the quiet room in the second period. "I was pretty shocked, to be honest," said McDavid, who had no idea why anyone thought he was concussed. "I hit my mouth on the ice. You reach up and grab your mouth when you get hit in the mouth, it’s a pretty normal thing. It kind of sucks because that’s the rule - you hit your head, you reach up (to grab it), they take you off the ice I guess." McDavid told officials he didn't reach for his head but was checking his mouth for blood. Nevertheless he missed ice time but returned for the third period. McDavid was held off the scoresheet but still leads the NHL in points with 34.

Jonas Gustavsson and the Oilers fell 2-1 in overtime against Minnesota on Sunday night.

Gustavsson made 31 saves on 33 shots, but the Oilers' offense never got going against a hot Devan Dubnyk. Gustavsson falls to 1-1-1 this year with a 2.00 goals against average and .923 save percentage.
Dec 5 - 1:20 AM

Patrick Maroon's eighth goal of the year was all the Oilers could manage against the Wild on Sunday night.

The Oilers fell 2-1 in overtime against Minnesota, but Maroon reached the scoresheet for his third consecutive game. The 28-year-old now has eight goals and 13 points in 27 games.
Dec 5 - 12:22 AM

Coach Todd McLellan will forego any lineup changes for Sunday's match against the Wild.

That means Jesse Puljujarvi will be joined by Matt Hendricks and Dillon Simpson in the press box once again. The talented rookie has seven points in 20 games, but has not yet dressed in December.
