Oilers move into tie for first in Pacific with win vs Avs

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) The Oilers know a postseason berth is imminent. Now it's just a matter of finding out where they'll fit in that playoff picture.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Drake Caggiula each had a goal and an assist and Edmonton moved into a three-way tie atop the Pacific Division with a 4-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.

"We are obviously watching the standings and aware of where we fit in right now," Caggiula said. "This was a huge two points for our team. Every point is going to be crucial, but with the other teams giving us some help tonight, it was big that we got these two points."
