After ending his personal 14-game losing streak two nights ago against the Dallas Stars, Nikolai Khabibulin
returned to the crease tonight looking for his second consecutive victory. The Oilers netminder stood tall, turning aside 36 of the 37 Montreal attempts he faced. Ales Hemsky
scored twice, while Jordan Eberle
and Ryan Jones
added early third period tallies to provide the offensive catalyst in an entertaining 4-1 victory over the Canadiens.
With the triumph, Edmonton has now won two consecutive home games; a feat not achieved since the first two games of the season when the Oilers skated away on the winning side of 4-0 and 3-2 scores against the Calgary Flames and Florida Panthers respectively.
