Oilers set flames on brink of elimination with Game 4 win

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) – Ryan Nugent-Hopkins suffered a severe headache in Edmonton.

The 2011 first pick missed the playoffs in seven of their first eight seasons in the NHL, as the Oilers repeatedly fumbled and fumbled in what must have felt like an endless rebuild.

After an impressive comeback midway through the third period on Tuesday night, Nugent-Hopkins rose to the occasion when he was needed most.

Nugent-Hopkins scored his second goal of the game with 3:27 remaining in regulation time, and the Oilers beat the Calgary Flames 5–3 to take a 3–1 lead in the second-round playoff series.
