Sam Gagner scored the game winner as the Edmonton Oilers held on for a 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday, despite having captain Connor McDavid on the shelf serving a suspension.
Carter Rowney responded for the Ducks (24-29-9), who have lost two straight.
Despite a sluggish start, the Oilers were first on the scoreboard with four minutes to play in the first period when a rebound squirted past Ducks goalie Kevin Boyle to Currie, who scored his first career NHL goal in his third ever game.
