Friday night around the NHL

1. OILERS’ HALL OUT FOR SEASON

Edmonton Oilers’ GM, Steve Tambellini’s, worst nightmares came true on Thursday night when his star forward, Taylor Hal, l had his season come to a premature end after spraining his ankle in a fight against Columbus Blue Jackets’ Derek Dorsett. Hall, who has scored 22 goals and 42 points in 65 games scored a goal and added an assist, before the fight, during what was an Oilers 4-2 win. “I’m obviously very disappointed with the MRI results today,” said Hall, who had his leg buckle under him during the fight. “However, I know this isn’t going to slow me down. I’m hoping for a quick recovery and can hopefully get back on the ice soon and get ready for next season.” The injury will take approximately eight weeks to heal.

2. ARNOTT SCORES WINNER FOR CAPITALS

Jason Arnott made a great impression in front of the Washington fans by scoring what turned out to be the game winning goal, in what was a 3-2 decision, against the St. Louis Blues. Arnott, who came to the Capitals last Monday in a trade deadline deal with the New Jersey Devils, was playing in only his second game as a Capital. Arnott, who won a Stanley Cup back in 2000 with the Devils, has now played on five different teams during his 17 year career. In his Capitals’ debut, against the New York Islanders, Arnott had an assist.
