Oilers cool off Flyers with 2-0 win

Devan Dubnyk made 35 saves for his first shutout of the season and the Edmonton Oilers won their second game in a row, topping the Philadelphia Flyers 2-0 on Thursday.

Jordan Eberle had a goal and an assist and Taylor Hall also scored for the Oilers (24-30-6), who have the second-worst record in the NHL.

Edmonton broke the deadlock on a power play at 3:26 of the second. Hall was able to find an inch to squeeze the puck between the post and Ilya Bryzgalov's skate for his 22nd of the season and a 1-0 Oilers lead.

Edmonton went up 2-0 at 8:04 of the second as Eberle picked up a loose puck and sent a shot from the slot that bounced off Bryzgalov's inside pad before trickling across the goal line.
