    Connor McDavid is seriously a handful

    EDMONTON, Alberta -- Connor McDavid scored four goals and added an assist, and the Edmonton Oilers knocked off the top team in the NHL, defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-2 on Monday night.

    Leon Draisaitl and Iiro Pakarinen also scored for the Oilers, who have gone 5-1-1 in their last seven.

    Alex Killorn and Yanni Gourde replied for the Lightning, who fell to 5-3 on their eight-game road trip (see full recap).

    Hanzal, Stars edge skidding Rangers
    DALLAS -- Martin Hanzal returned from injured reserve and scored the game-winning goal in the Dallas Stars' 2-1 victory over the slumping New York Rangers on Monday night.

    On the power play, Hanzal skated across the goalmouth and tipped in Julius Honka's shot from the right point to break a 1-all tie 4:05 into the third period. Hanzal missed the previous five games because of a strained muscle in his lower body.

    The Stars' third straight win moved them within one point of St. Louis for third place in the Central Division. The Rangers, who have lost six of seven, are last in the rugged Metropolitan Division and three points out of a postseason spot in a crowded Eastern Conference playoff race.

    New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist lost his fifth game in a row despite making 39 saves.

    Ben Bishop had 31 saves for Dallas (see full recap).

    Maple Leafs pull away as Andersen injured
    TORONTO -- William Nylander scored twice, including the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, and the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Anaheim Ducks 7-4 on Monday night.

    Auston Matthews also had two goals for the Maple Leafs. Mitch Marner, Leo Komarov and Zach Hyman scored one apiece, but the win might have come at a cost.

    Toronto starting goaltender Frederik Andersen left at 6:15 of the second period after he was struck in the head by Corey Perry's left skate.

    Andersen stopped 25 of 28 shots before being replaced by backup Curtis McElhinney, who improved to 6-4 this season with 16 saves on 17 shots.

    The severity of the injury was unknown, and no update was provided by the Maple Leafs before the end of the game.

    Rickard Rakell scored twice for the Ducks, and Perry assisted on all four of their goals. Ryan Getzlaf and Ondrej Kase also scored (see full recap).
