UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall scored two goals just eight seconds apart to break the team mark set by Wayne Gretzky.

The 21-year-old Hall connected at 15:52 of the first period with a wrist shot from the left circle and then knocked a rebound past New York Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov at 16:00 on Thursday night.

Gretzky, the NHL career leader in goals and points, scored two goals in nine seconds against St. Louis on Feb. 18, 1981, in the third period of Edmonton's 9-2 victory.

Hall, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft, turned Edmonton's deficit into a 2-1 lead. He entered play Thursday with only one goal in seven games this season.
