OTTAWA - Even when the Edmonton Oilers win the news is bad.

It’s been that kind of road trip, that kind of season, for a team that’s waiting for something, anything, to go their way.

The Oilers finally snapped their five-game losing streak Saturday with a 3-1 decision over the Ottawa Senators, but still left the nation’s capital in a sombre mood after watching Taylor Hall limp off the ice with a knee injury.

The Oilers don’t know the exact diagnosis or prognosis yet, but Hall looked in some serious pain when he left the game 13 minutes into the second period after taking a hit from Eric Gryba.

The Oilers were leading 2-0 at the time and managed to close out the victory despite being outshot by a nearly 2-to-1 margin most of the night. The win improves Edmonton to 2-6-1 heading to Montreal for the final game of the six-stop trip.
