Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Connor McDavid had a goal and an assist as the Oilers are in the win column for the first time this season.
McDavid, who scored the game-winning goal on the power play in the third period, has a point on all five of Edmonton’s goals this season (two goals, three assists). The Oilers (1-2-0) lost their first two games by a combined score of 9-3. The first two games did not show any improvement from last season. to be honest, fans in this city were already losing their minds.

I have to admit, the schedule does not favor Edmonton at all to start the Season. However, it will be key to stick to a gameplay as close to this afternoons as possible.
Oilers won one they had to have!
Team played with some energy.
McDavid and RNH, 1-1-2.
Talbot stellar, 23 saves.
Strome and Brodziak lines grinded effectively in 2nd and 3rd.
Won Special Teams battle as well.

Let’s hope this team can carry the minimum to beat some really good teams coming up…
