Montreal moves into playoff spot

Montreal received some much-needed help from Edmonton.

Connor McDavid had a goal and an assist as the Oilers played spoiler with a 4-1 win over Columbus at Rogers Place.

With the loss, the Blue Jackets fell out of a playoff spot combined with Montreal’s 4-0 win over the Islanders at Bell Centre.

Montreal is now one point up on Columbus for the second wild-card in the East.
