Ryan-Nugent Hopkins scored two goals, including one into an empty net, to help the Edmonton Oilers beat the Ottawa Senators 3-1 and snap a five-game losing streak.

Jordan Eberle added a goal, and Devan Dubnyk made 35 saves for the Oilers (2-6-1).

Chris Neil had the only goal for the Senators (3-3-2), and Robin Lehner made 18 saves in his second start of the season.

An extended power play early in the third period failed to provide the Oilers with any insurance. Ottawa failed to capitalize on momentum created by killing off a 5-on-3 power play that lasted a full 2 minutes.

Senators forward Milan Michalek was called for goalie interference when he ran into Dubnyk, and teammate Jared Cowen was given an interference penalty as the play continued into Ottawa's end.
