NHL: Oilers Edge Hurricanes in Overtime

The Edmonton Oilers remain alive in the battle for the National (ice) Hockey League Stanley Cup with a dramatic 4-3 overtime victory against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Edmonton had all seven shots in the extra period Wednesday in Raleigh, North Carolina. But Fernando Pisani's shorthanded with a teammate in the penalty box, unassisted blast was the one that won the game. Despite the victory, Edmonton still trails Carolina, 3-2, in the best-of-seven championship series.

The Oilers led 3-2 after a wild opening period. Carolina's Eric Staal tied the game in the second period. The final period of regulation was scoreless.

The series moves back to Canada where Edmonton will host Game Six on Saturday. If needed, the Stanley Cup will be won on Carolina's home ice in Game Seven on Monday.
