Nugent-Hopkins posted a power-play goal and an assist in a 2-1 overtime victory over the Stars on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The Oilers only scored two power-play goals, but that was enough Tuesday, as the Stars didn't register a goal at even strength either. Nugent-Hopkins tallied his seventh goal with the man advantage this season and found Alex Chiasson on the power play for the game-winner in overtime. Nugent-Hopkins has seven goals and 17 assists on the power play this season, putting him within reach of setting career bests in both categories with 15 games remaining. He has 20 goals and 58 points in 61 games this season.

Nugent-Hopkins scored twice and added an assist in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Wild.
