First: Darnell Nurse Scores his First NHL Goal

Darnell Nurse is averaging a goal a game this season. Well, sure, he's only played one game, but you can't deny that the 20-year-old didn't turn a few heads with the above laser that he launched past Wild' goalie Devan Dubnyk. At the conclusion of a beautiful end-to-end rush Darnell snaps off an absolute bomb that Dubnyk never saw. Darnell's shot had so much juice on it that it was hard to tell without the benefit of slo-mo replay where the shot went or if it really was a goal.

“Special feeling to score in this league, something you dream of as a kid,” Darnell said after the game. “I got it off quick and it got into the right spot.”

Nurse's goal put the Oilers ahead 3-2, but they could not hold on to the lead and fell to 3-7 with the 4-3 loss to the Wild.
