McDavid scored the tiebreaking goal and Leon Draisaitl had two goals and an assist, all in the third period, and the Edmonton Oilers beat the New York Rangers 4-1 Saturday for their season-opening fifth straight win.

"It's nice to be 5-0 but we have to keep getting better," said McDavid, who also had an assist. "I thought we were really effective as a line tonight. There's a few times we tried to force plays, turned the puck over a little bit in the first (period)."
