EDMONTON Boston Bruins T-Shirts Authentic , Alberta (AP) — The Edmonton Oilers got a signature early-season victory — and not just because it came against the defending Stanley Cup champions.Rookie Evan Bouchard scored his first goal, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had a goal and an assist and the Oilers beat the Washington Capitals 4-1 on Thursday night.Alex Chiasson and Connor McDavid also scored for the Oilers, who snapped a two-game skid. Cam Talbot made 31 saves.“It’s definitely a confidence boost,” Nugent-Hopkins said.“Just the way we played tonight, it didn’t matter who we played, we played a solid 60 minutes and didn’t give up too many grade-A opportunities or give up the puck too much. And when we had our chances, we capitalized. To keep a team like that to one goal is a good sign for our club.”Andre Burakovsky scored and Braden Holtby stopped 28 shots for the Capitals, who have lost two of three.“I really felt like against a dangerous transition team we really fueled their offense by the way we handled the puck,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden said. “Our puck management was poor and a lot of turnovers got us into trouble and kind of tilted the ice in their favor for really no reason.”Edmonton got on the board first on a power play with 3:32 left in the opening period. Bouchard, the 10th overall pick in the draft who turned 19 on Oct. 20 Boston Bruins Hoodies Authentic , scored on a shot from the point with Holtby screened on the play. He became the youngest defenseman in Oilers history to score a goal.“I didn’t actually see it go in. I just saw the guys celebrating,” Bouchard said.The Oilers added a short-handed tally midway through the second when Nugent-Hopkins picked off a pass, undressed Niklas Backstrom and beat Holtby for his third of the season.Washington got that goal back a couple of minutes later as Nic Dowd found Burakovsky alone at the side of the net and he put his first of the season past Talbot.Edmonton made it 3-1 midway through the third when Chiasson picked the top corner on a long-range bomb, his third goal in the last two games.“I wasn’t playing at the start of the year, but I learned last year that you have to keep on working on your game,” said Chiasson, who played for Washington last season.“I may not be the fastest guy, but I believe in my abilities and I believe in my shot. I just have to find the right places at the right time. It was nice to get one against my old team.”McDavid added a late empty-netter.NOTES: It was the first of two meetings between the teams this season. They’ll play again on Nov. 5 in Washington. … Chiasson got his Stanley Cup ring from the Capitals on Tuesday afternoon.UP NEXTCapitals: The defending champions continue their Canadian trip, facing the Calgary Flames on Saturday.Oilers: At Nashville on Saturday. CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins scored a lot of goals in Alberta — 15 in two games Boston Bruins Hats Authentic , to be exact.Patric Hornqvist and Phil Kessel each scored twice and the Penguins pounded the Calgary Flames 9-1 on Thursday night.Sidney Crosby, Bryan Rust, Jack Johnson, Jake Guentzel and Matt Cullen also scored, and Matt Murray made 38 saves to help the Penguins improve to 5-1-2 overall and 3-0 on a four-game Canadian trip.“I think that just speaks to the talent we have in here,” Murray said. “When we come with our ‘A’ game, it’s hard to stop. You look around our lineup and it’s pretty clear why we score that many goals.”Crosby has scored three times in his last two games after going six without a goal to start this season. Evgeni Malkin had a pair of assists to extend his point streaks to six straight games.After winning 3-0 in Toronto, the Penguins (5-1-2) spent a few days in Banff, Alberta, before facing the province’s NHL teams.Crosby theorized the Banff break and a relatively leisurely schedule on this road trip has kept Pittsburgh’s scorers fresh.“It was good that we got out here fairly early to get our feet under us Custom Boston Bruins Jerseys , time change and all that stuff,” the captain said. “Banff was a great trip, it’s beautiful there and we had some good practices.”James Neal spoiled Murray’s shutout bid late in the third period.Flames starter Mike Smith was pulled for David Rittich midway through the second period after allowing six goals on 21 shots. Rittich turned away 12 of 15 shots.Four previous games between Calgary and Pittsburgh had either gone to a shootout or overtime, but the Penguins put on a scoring clinic, pouncing on rebounds and converting both power-play chances into goals.The Flames (5-5) were booed at Scotiabank Saddledome after the second period when they trailed by a converted touchdown, and after the buzzer.“They scored a few and we started taking some risks that obviously you can’t take against a team like that who knows how to put the puck in the net,” Flames captain Mark Giordano said.NOTES: Defenseman Travis Hamonic returned to Calgary’s lineup after missing eight games. His jaw was broken in a fight with Vancouver’s Erik Gudbranson in the season opener. … Malkin has two goals and 10 assists during his six-game points streak.UP NEXT:Penguins: At Vancouver on Saturday night.Flames: Host Washington on Saturday.
