Oilers dump Rangers

Raffi Torres had his first two-goal game in the NHL, and Radek Dvorak scored against his former teammates in the Edmonton Oilers' 5-4 victory over the Rangers last night in New York.

Torres scored consecutive goals 3:53 apart in the second period to push Edmonton in front, 4-2. Dvorak's first of the season tied it for the Oilers, who had trailed, 2-0.

Bobby Holik scored twice and Brian Leetch got his first of the season for the Rangers.

Red Wings 3, Blackhawks 0 -- Dominik Hasek stopped 21 shots for his 63d career shutout and host Detroit won for just the second time in eight games (2-5-1). Hasek ranks third in career shutouts among active goaltenders. New Jersey's Martin Brodeur and Toronto's Ed Belfour each have 66 shutouts.

Kings 3, Capitals 2 -- Trent Klatt scored two goals to lead visiting Los Angeles over Washington. Robert Lang scored twice for the Capitals, who have lost 10 of 12 games.
