Lennart Petrell scored his first goal in over a month Saturday to lead Helsinki to a 4-1 win.
Petrell had eight goals through October 30 and finally got number nine Saturday. To be fair, the SM-liiga shut down for a couple of weeks in November but it still must have been a relief for the 28-year-old Finn. He has yet to garner an assist this season. Look for Petrell, who had nine points in 60 games for Edmonton in his first season in North America last year, to contribute more in the NHL as it usually takes veterans a year to acclimate themselves to the North American lifestyle.
