Oilers surge past Lightning 5-2

Sep 24, 2010 - 4:35 AM EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Rookie Magnus Paajarvi had a hat trick and an assist and No. 1 overall pick Taylor Hall also scored and the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-2 in their preseason home opener on Thursday.

Andrew Cogliano also scored for the Oilers, who are 2-0 in exhibition play.

Randy Jones and Carter Ashton scored for the Lightning, who dropped to 2-1.

The Lightning started the scoring 4 1/2 minutes in as Jones took a 2-on-1 feed from Teddy Purcell and beat Oilers starter Devan Dubnyk glove side.

Edmonton came close to tying it up less than a minute later as Hall, making his Oilers debut, hit the post behind Tampa goalie Dan Ellis.

The Oilers tied the game with five minutes to play in the opening frame as highly-touted Swedish rookie Paajarvi made a beautiful move 4-on-4 to split the defense, only to score as he fanned on his shot and watched it slide through Ellis' legs.
