Cam Talbot made 44 saves and Teddy Purcell had two goals and an assist as the Edmonton Oilers won their seventh consecutive home game, defeating the Winnipeg Jets 3-1 on Monday night.

Justin Schultz also scored for the Oilers, who snapped a three-game skid.

Bryan Little had the goal for the Jets, who have lost three of four.

The Oilers opened the scoring 11 minutes into the first period when Purcell's shot ticked off a Winnipeg defender and past rookie goalie Connor Hellebuyck, who was making his fifth straight start. Taylor Hall picked up his 300th career point with an assist.

Hellebuyck made 11 saves on 14 shots before being replaced by Michael Hutchinson, who stopped all seven shots he faced.
