Yakupov's late goal gives Oilers 2-1 victory against Rangers

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Nail Yakupov scored with 1:38 left in regulation to give the Edmonton Oilers to a 2-1 win over the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

Ryan Smyth also scored for Edmonton, which is 5-5 in its last 10. Ben Scrivens made 35 saves.

New York's season-high four-game winning streak came to an end. Derick Brassard scored and Cam Talbot made 29 saves.

Yakupov, first overall pick in the 2012 draft, one-timed a feed from Sam Gagner past Talbot.

Smyth opened the scoring 2:56 into the game by shoving a rebound of David Perrron's shot past Talbot.

Brassard drew the Rangers even at 1-1 with a slap shot that beat Scrivens 22 seconds into the second period. Brassard's goal was his 11th of the season.
