Thursday's NHL Capsules

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall scored 51 seconds apart in the second period, and Ilya Bryzgalov got a shutout in his first start for Edmonton as the Oilers beat the Nashville Predators 3-0 Thursday night.

Bryzgalov, signed by the Oilers on Nov. 8, made 33 saves in his first NHL start since April 25 when he was in net for Philadelphia. Jordan Eberle added an empty-netter in the final minute off an assist from Hall, and the Oilers have won four of five.

Predators captain Shea Weber was hit by a puck near his right eye at 15:24 of the second, dropped to the ice and immediately skated to the locker room. He did not return with what team officials called an upper-body injury, and is day to day.

Nashville, which had won two straight, lost for the second time in seven games.

CANUCKS 5, SENATORS 2

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Daniel Sedin scored his 300th career goal and added an assist to help Vancouver defeat Ottawa.

David Booth, Jason Garrison, Dale Weise and Mike Santorelli also scored for the Canucks, who won for only the second time in nine games. Roberto Luongo made 37 saves.

Clarke MacArthur and Mika Zibanejad scored for Ottawa. Craig Anderson allowed four goals on 15 shots before being replaced by Robin Lehner, who gave up one goal on 13 shots.

The Senators, who beat Washington 6-4 on Wednesday, dropped to 0-4-1 when playing back-to-back nights.

Vancouver has won six straight and 10 of the past 11 meetings between the clubs.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
