EDMONTON, Alberta – Matt Hendricks scored a pair of goals and the Edmonton Oilers topped the New York Islanders 5-2 on Sunday night.
Jordan Eberle, Derek Roy and Matt Fraser also scored for the Oilers, who won for just the third time in their last 25 games. Edmonton, however, improved to 2-0-2 in its last four games since interim head coach Todd Nelson took sole possession of the Oilers' bench, with general manager Craig MacTavish moving back upstairs.
Johnny Boychuk and Brock Nelson scored for the Islanders, whose three-game winning streak ended. New York is 7-2-1 in its last 10.
