It's a little early to say Ryan-Nugent Hopkins, Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle will be a happily-ever-after line with only 134 NHL games under their belt, but if this was a sneak peek into the future, Edmonton Oilers fans should all be smiling broadly today. The trio had seven points and 10 shots Tuesday as the Oilers babies took a huge bite out of the Phoenix Coyotes at Rexall Place. The Coyotes didn't come to Edmonton with defenceman David Schlemko and dressed only 75 per cent of their likely opening-night lineup, with pretty much their NHL defence. Yet, Hall had two goals and an assist when he drove the net recklessly and Nugent-Hopkins tapped in the loose puck for his first pro goal. Nugent-Hopkins also fed Hall for both of the sophomore's goals for a similiar three-point night, and Eberle had an assist in the 3-2 win.
