After a four-game losing streak that broke the Oilers’ back — culminating in a do-or-die defeat on home ice against one of the worst road teams in the NHL — it was Taylor Hall who stepped forward to accept blame.

It was Taylor Hall explaining why somebody on the other team needed a two-hander across the back of the legs.

It was Taylor Hall who spent the last four games playing like somebody who is genuinely sick and tired of all the losing around here.

Too bad there is only one of him.
