EDMONTON - Ryan Smyth had a goal and an assist as the Edmonton Oilers snapped a season-high six-game losing streak with a 5-1 victory over the Nashville Predators on Sunday. EDMONTON - It took a full-team effort from the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday to halt a six-game losing streak. Five players had a multi-point performance and goaltender Ben Scrivens made 34 saves as Edmonton avoided a seventh straight loss by defeating the visiting Nashville Predators 5-1. "It was a good team win, all four lines and all six defence were rolling pretty good," said Edmonton defenceman Justin Schultz. Edmonton went up by two goals midway through the second period as Smyth picked up the rebound to a long Corey Potter shot in the crease and hooked it past Hutton. Nashville thought it had clawed even just 48 seconds in to the second period, but Taylor Beck was called for goalie interference for running Scrivens over as he chipped the puck in and the goal was disallowed. The Oilers went into the dressing rooms on a positive note after a goal with 12 seconds left in the first period as Taylor Hall sent a great pass through the legs of defender Roman Josi to give Eberle an easy redirection into the net from the doorstep.
