EDMONTON -- Mikko Rantanen had a goal and an assist to take over the NHL scoring lead, and the Colorado Avalanche ended a five-game losing streak with a 4-1 win against the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place on Sunday.
Sixty-seven fans traveled in one of the tour groups following the Edmonton Oilers in Europe. Sixty-six of them came to see their favorite team. One came to hear it. Jim Bennett, 79, is blind. Yet there he was with his wife, Del, 78, the two of them wearing orange Oilers jerseys at Scandinavium on Saturday as the Oilers played the New Jersey Devils in the 2018 NHL Global Series.
