Oilers' Alex Chiasson: Picks up pair of points

Chiasson collected a goal and an assist with two shots and two hits in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over Montreal.

He later added a helper on Leon Draisaitl's power-play tally in the second period. Chiasson has nine goals and 16 points with 33 PIM heading into Saturday's regular-season finale.
