Taylor Hall broke one of Wayne Gretzky's team records when he scored twice in eight seconds for the Edmonton Oilers against the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.

Taylor Hall broke one of Wayne Gretzky's team records when he scored twice in eight seconds for the Edmonton Oilers against the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.

Hall converted a pass from Justin Schultz at 15:52 of the first period, then fired a rebound past Evgeni Nabokov at the 16-minute mark.

Gretzky had held the franchise record for fastest two goals by one player since Dec. 18, 1981, when he scored twice in nine seconds against the St. Louis Blues.

Sheldon Souray and Ales Hemsky hold the team record for the two fastest goals by two players, which they set on November 23, 2009 when they scored twice in seven seconds against the Phoenix Coyotes. (WATCH)

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
