The Edmonton Oilers used a two-goal first period to propel them to a 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche.  Philippe Cornet, just recalled by the Oilers, earned an assist on the first Oilers goal.  Lennert Patrell and Jeff Petry also played in the game.
Cornet, recalled earlier in the day and playing in his first NHL game, assisted on Jordan Eberle's first period goal.  He played just over 10 minutes in the game and was even on the night.

Defenseman Jeff Petry led the Oilers in ice time with just over 22 minutes played.  He registered two shots on goal and was a +1 on the night.  Petrell played just over 10 minutes in the game and recorded one shot on goal.

Goaltender Devan Dubnyk made 31 saves in the game for the win.

The Oilers will stay in Edmonton and host the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday.  Faceoff is set for 8:30 p.m. (ct).
