against the Oilers. He replaced Brent Johnson with 5:48 left in

contest and set up Petr Cajanek for the game-winner with 1:47
left in the second. Weight has two goals and four assists in
eight career games vs. Edmonton.
The Oilers have won two of their last three games after Monday's
2-1 overtime victory over the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. Rookie
Jarret Stoll scored 36 seconds into overtime as the Oilers
improved to 2-1 on their five-game homestand and 13-12-3 at
Rexall Place this season.
Edmonton center Adam Oates, who spent parts of three seasons
with the Blues, needs one more point to pass Dale Hawerchuk

all-time points list.
The Oilers are 22-17-4 all time against the Blues and the teams
meet twice in St. Louis in March.
