In case you missed it last night, the Edmonton Oilers earned a 5-2 win over the New York Islanders thanks in large part to a four goal performance from newcomer James Neal.
Neal, of course, was acquired by the Oilers from the Calgary Flames in a one for one deal for Milan Lucic. Now, in his first three games with his new team, Neal has six goals… nearly matching his output in 63 games from last season.
What a game from the new guy!
Safe to say that the Neal / Lucic swap is working out just fine for the Oilers so far.
