Hall breaks Oilers team record for fastest two goals
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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
