The Edmonton Oilers' power-play unit is making news - and it's good news for a change.

After failing to score a single goal in four straight games - going 0-for-15 with the man advantage - the 27th ranked power-play unit in the NHL erupted for two goals on three chances last night.

"We got it set up fairly easily," said Jarret Stoll, who was on the ice for both tallies, "and moved it around.

"And when you get shots when moving it around, the penalty killers getting tired out.

"(Then) we jump on those loose pucks and we get those second chance opportunities."

After out-shooting Columbus 9-0 to open the game, Ryan Smyth finally broke Ty Conklin's spell by scoring the game's first goal on the power play with the team's 10th shot.

Petr Sykora got the game winner with the man advantage in the second period on a gorgeous feed from Smyth.
