Edmonton Oilers: Surprise, surprise. Ales Hemsky shoots and he scores. The talented Oilers youngster had a shot on goal for the first time in eight games and scored the winning goal in Edmonton's 3-2 victory over Toronto on Thursday night.
Pittsburgh Penguins: Budget, schmudget. Penguins head coach Eddie Olczyk will play rookie goalie Marc-Andre Fleury on Friday night against the New Jersey Devils. This despite Pittsburgh's concerns the 18-year-old might trigger certain contract bonuses and Fleury's last performance when he gave up three goals on nine shots before getting yanked against the Wild.
