NHL Roundup : Edmonton Beaten, 8-7; Kurri Lost for 10 Days

From Times Wire Services

Right wing Jari Kurri, who leads the National Hockey League with 70 goals and ranks second in scoring behind Edmonton teammate Wayne Gretzky, will be sidelined for an estimated 10 days with a broken left hand.

Kurri, injured in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Boston Bruins, did not dress Friday night when the Oilers lost to the Harford Whalers, 8-7, at Hartford, Conn. He is expected to be back for the NHL playoffs.

Rookie center Ray Ferraro scored three goals and had two assists, and Ray Neufeld had two goals and two assists to lead the Whalers.

Ferraro scored his second hat trick in the last four games, getting all three goals in the second period. His five-point night tied a club record.

The victory also extended Hartford's winning streak to a club-high seven.

Chicago 5, Winnipeg 5--Tom Lysiak's goal with 51 seconds remaining in regulation lifted the Black Hawks into an overtime tie with the Jets before a sellout crowd of 15,650 at Winnipeg.

The goal came off a goalmouth scramble, and with Chicago goaltender Warren Skorodenski on the bench in favor of an extra attacker.
