Yakupov, 19, scored after Coyotes center Antoine Vermette was called for high-sticking. "It's another big goal for Nail. He seems to have a knack for scoring those goals. He seems to be a goal-scorer," Oilers center Sam Gagner said. "...

As we all know, Yakupov is very Russian, and he...

Still the Marleau show. Can't wait till he doesn't score any goals in the playoffs. Parise looks like a monster with the Wild. Fun team to watch.
