    For No. 1 draft pick Taylor Hall, seven games was an eternity.

    Hall scored his first NHL goal for the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night, but Nikita Filatov and Rick Nash converted in the shootout to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 3-2 victory.

    "Definitely not the prettiest goal of my life, but I'll take it for sure," Hall said of his tying tip-in at 9:57 of the third period. "It was a big goal for our team as well. I've been waiting a long time and I've been asked about it a million times. I put a lot of pressure on myself just because it's out there. I definitely wanted to score tonight and I had a feeling before the game that this was going to be the night."

    The game was played before 9,128 fans, the smallest crowd to watch the Blue Jackets at home.
