The Flyers had 14 shots on Dubnyk to Edmonton's nine on Bryzgalov in the first.
However, the Oilers had the best chance of the opening period as Hall made a nice backhand feed from behind the net to Ales Hemsky, but Bryzgalov came across his crease quickly to make the stop.
NOTES: It was the only meeting between the two teams this season. ... Oilers coach Tom Renney missed his fifth game with a concussion after taking a puck in the head in practice. Associate coach Ralph Krueger has been guiding the team. ... The Oilers were still without rookie sensation Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, but he has started practicing with contact and could return from a shoulder injury as soon as Saturday. ... Besides the long-term injuries to forward Tom Sestito (groin) and defenseman Chris Pronger, the Flyers fielded a healthy team. ... Both teams have been strong on the power play this season as the Oilers came into the game fourth and the Flyers ranked fifth in the league. ... Flyers forward Jaromir Jagr still needs just one point to move into eighth place in NHL scoring. He is tied with Joe Sakic with 1,641 points.
