EDMONTON, Alberta, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- Taylor Hall scored just 23 seconds into overtime Saturday, lifting Edmonton to a 2-1 decision over St. Louis.

The Oilers won their fourth straight and handed the Blues their fifth consecutive loss.

Neither side managed a goal through the opening two periods, but Ryan Jones finally broke through for Edmonton by tipping in a shot 2:32 into the third.

Eric Brewer tied it on a wrist shot with 6:27 remaining in regulation.

Nikolai Khabibulin made 31 saves to get the win, his second straight after enduring a personal four-game skid.

St. Louis has won eight of its 11 home games this year, but the Blues have dropped 10-of-14 on the road.
