The Edmonton Oilers were far from their best, but it's tough to imagine Taylor Hall playing much better.

The Oilers winger was one of the lone bright spots in what could turn out to be the end of a playoff-contending road trip.

Hall had five goals and two assists in the seven consecutive games away from Rexall Place. He also hit three goalposts in the game against the New York Islanders where he failed to collect a point.

"I thought I played well and I tried to contribute as best I could," said Hall. "I think that obviously I'm still doing something wrong, because we're not winning. That needs to be the focal point for everybody in this room and that's what I'm going to get back to, is playing as well defensively as I can to contribute to wins."
