Marc Staal scored a two goals, had a plus-1 rating, two PIMs, four shots, three hits and one block as the Detroit Red Wings fell to the Edmonton Oilers 7-5.
Edmonton chased Thomas Greiss in the first five minutes with three goals but Staal was able to get one back with a shot from the point that beat Mikko Koskinen. His second knotted the game at 4-4 with pretty much the exact same shot from the point, that scored in the exact same area of the net. The effort is nice to see but it constitutes his second and third of the year so he doesn't carry much upside.
