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

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
