Habs rally past Oilers

EDMONTON—The Montreal Canadiens knew that if they kept getting shots on net, they'd break through the Edmonton Oilers.

Paul Byron scored a pair of goals and added an assist as the Montreal Canadiens rallied for a 4-1 victory in Edmonton last night.

All four goals came in a six-minute span in the third period—erasing the Oilers' early 1-0 lead.
