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

The Oilers finally snapped their five-game losing streak Saturday with a 3-1 decision over the Ottawa Senators, but still had to cap the celebration some after watching Taylor Hall limp off the ice with a knee injury after taking a second period hit from Eric Gryba.

“I know it’s his knee and I don’t know the severity of it,” said head coach Dallas Eakins. “Our doctors will look at it and let us know. I will say that when a guy doesn’t come back in the game it’s usually something that’s going to be more than a day or two but I have no idea right now.”

The hit didn’t look like much, but it apparently was, as Hall winced and took a one-handed swing at Gryba, drawing a two-minute minor. When the penalty expired Hall joined the play, took a wrist shot and immediately felt the knee give out. He hobbled to the bench and had to be helped to the Edmonton dressing room.
