Boston (3-2-3) at Edmonton (4-3-0), 9:00 p.m. EDT
EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) — The Edmonton Oilers have come back
down to earth after a fast start to the season.
Edmonton hopes to snap a three-game losing streak when it hosts
the Boston Bruins on Monday.
The Oilers were off to their first 4-0-0 start since they won
their first five games during the 1985-86 campaign.
But after winning the first four games all by one goal, Edmonton
has been outscored, 13-4, during its skid. The Oilers lost,
6-3, to the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.
Boston snapped its three-game losing streak on Saturday as Milan
Lucic scored a hat trick in a 5-4 victory over Atlanta. Lucic
netted the game-winner with 1:41 remaining.
Center Marc Savard leads Boston with 11 points and recorded two
assists in Saturday’s triumph. He had gone scoreless in his
previous three games.
It will be the Bruins’ first visit to Edmonton since the club
won, 5-4, in overtime on December 3, 2005.
