Video: Hall’s hat trick leads Oilers over Avalanche

Dec 6, 2013, 12:42 AM EDT

It was once close. Then the Edmonton Oilers pulled away. In the end, it was incredibly lopsided.

The Oilers scored five unanswered goals in the final 28 minutes of Thursday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche, busting wide open what was at one point a one-goal hockey game into an 8-2 thumping.

Taylor Hall scored twice in the first period and completed the hat trick on the power play with 11 seconds remaining in the third period to complete the eight spot for the Oilers. He finished the night with four points.

On top of losing big time on the score board, the Avalanche lost defenseman Jan Hejda in the first period with a knee injury. He did not return.

      Because the Kings sure couldn’t do it when the Avs shut them out in the Staples Center.
