Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored two goals, including the winner 2:46 into overtime as the Edmonton Oilers beat the Philadelphia Flyers 5-4 on Saturday night.

Teddy Purcell, Matt Hendricks and Jordan Eberle scored in regulation for the Oilers (20-39-13), who have won two of three.

Claude Giroux netted two goals, and Ryan White and Michael Raffl also scored for the Flyers (29-29-16), who have lost four in a row and eight of nine.

Edmonton started the scoring just 51 seconds in. Eberle stole the puck from defenseman Nicklas Grossman behind the Flyers net and sent it in front to Nugent-Hopkins, who scored his 21st goal of the season past Philadelphia goalie Ray Emery.
