Hindsight is always 20/20 but it sure seems like history is on the side of the Edmonton Oilers when it comes to picking winners and losers in the Milan Lucic-James Neal trade.

James Neal had his first career four-goal game and the Edmonton Oilers beat the New York Islanders 5-2 on Tuesday night.

Neal scored two goals in the first period, including one on the power play, before completing the hat trick in the second period on the power play. Zack Kassian also continued his scoring ways, firing home a second period tally to give him three goals in three games to start the season.

Neal netted his second just 1:36 later when he took a Connor McDavid pass at the side of the net, just above the goal line, and slid it past Varlamov for his fourth of the season and the 2-1 lead.

The Kings surged back in front on the power play eight minutes into the third as a Doughty point shot ticked off an Oiler skate and past Smith. Martin pulled the Islanders within 5-2 with 6:28 left.

Just 3:39 after taking the 1-0 lead, Neal forced an Islanders turnover deep in their defensive zone.

The Oilers got a bit of a fluke goal just 53 seconds into the opening period as McDavid muscled his way through the middle and sent a centering pass that deflected off of Los Angeles defenceman Matt Roy and past goalie Jonathan Quick.

Edmonton tied the game back up five minutes into the third as Gaetan Haas banked a pass off the side of the net to Nygard for his first career National Hockey League goal.

Neal then put Edmonton ahead with a power-play goal after the Islanders' Brock Nelson was whistled for a double-minor for high-sticking.

The Oilers will visit the New Jersey Devils on Thursday.
