Vote for the Snickers Play of the Week - February 14-20
Each week, reviews all the top goals, saves, hits and fights and narrows it down to the final three. That means it's up to you, the fans, to decide which is the top play for the week.

It was one of the Oilers' most successful weeks of the season, recording victories in all three games played. In doing so, some incredible performances highlighted the two-point registries, with Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, and Shawn Horcoff battling for top spot in this week's edition.

Last week, Devan Dubnyk's double-denial emerged victorious with 47% of the votes over Hemsky and Penner's connection (33%) and Cogliano's goal vs. Ottawa (15%). Who will win this week? Watch the clips and vote to find out!

Hall Tricks Atlanta

Down by a goal entering the third period vs. Atlanta, an Evander Kane tally early in the frame extended that uphill climp to a pair of goals. Then, Taylor arrived and single-handily propeled the Oilers to victory in one of the most dramatic scenes at Rexall Place in quite some time.

Hall scored three times in the period, all on the power-play, to record his first career NHL hat-trick (of the natural variety, no less). The stunning third period performance lifted the Oilers to a well-earned 5-3 victory.


Eberle Freezes Price

With the Oilers and Canadiens deadlocked at one early in the third period vs. Montreal, Jordan Eberle scored an amazing goal to put the Oilers back in front and eventually win the game.

After receiving a carefully placed feed from linemate Taylor Hall, Eberle darted toward to the goal line before faking an unsuspecting Carey Price. Eberle eyed the top corner, where little room appeared to exist, but his seeing-eye shot eluded the Canadiens goaltender to put the Oilers up 2-1 and bring the sold-out Rexall Place crowd into a frenzy.


Captain at the Doorstep

The Oilers' recent surge in power-play production began with a terrific outing against the Dallas Stars earlier in the week. Captain Shawn Horcoff was the beneficiary of an excellent display of vision and skill by his long-time linemate, Ales Hemsky.

With the power-play opportunity winding down, Hemsky patiently awaited space in coverage. After opening up the Dallas defence with a drive to the slot, he then fed Horcoff at the doorstep with a fantastic pass that connected with precision. Horcoff made no mistake, despositing the 3-1 goal and his eighth of the season.
