OT Goal Leads Oilers Past Blues
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Taylor Hall scored the winner 23 seconds into overtime as the Edmonton Oilers extended their winning streak to four, beating the St. Louis Blues 2-1 on Saturday night.

Hall, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, was sent in on a breakaway by Ryan Whitney and scored his ninth goal of the season and third in two games.

Ryan Jones also scored for the Oilers (10-12-4), who have won five of six.

Eric Brewer had the lone goal for the Blues (12-9-4), who have dropped five straight. It is St. Louis' longest stretch without a win since December 2008.
