BLOG: Blue tops White 3-2 in Saturday's scrimmage

by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers
Team Blue defeated Team White 3-2 in a scrimmage at Rexall Place on Saturday. The game was played in two 30-minute halves of running time.


Ryan Nugent-Hopkins opened the scoring nearly 17 minutes in, banging the puck in past Ben Scrivens on a scramble in front of the goalmouth. Seven minutes later, Kellen Jones took advantage of a loose puck travelling across the crease and neatly backhanded it inside the right post.

In the second half, Blue increased its lead to 3-0 after Alex Krushelnyski wired a shot top corner from the high slot.

White made it interesting with late goals by Curtis Hamilton and Andrew Ference but it wasn't enough.
