MCDAVID SCORES ON POWER PLAY TO LIFT OILERS OVER RANGERS
Edmonton captain Connor McDavid scored the go-ahead goal on the power play and added an assist, lifting the visiting Oilers past the Rangers 2-1 for their first win of the season.
McDavid scored his second of the season at 6:23 of the third period, redirecting the puck past goaltender Henrik Lundqvist with Rangers forward Vladislav Namesnikov in the penalty box for holding. Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had assists. Golden Knights 1, Flyers
0: Cody Eakin scored with 1:25 left in the game and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 26 shots to lead the visiting Golden Knights to a 1-0 win over the Flyers.
Eakin ended the scoreless tie with a sensational sequence for the winner. He made a dive for the puck to keep it away from Flyers center Sean Couturier in Philly’s end of the ice. Ryan Carpenter snared the puck and passed it back to Eakin, who fired it from the circle past Brian Elliott for the winner.
Senators 5, Kings 1: Chris Wideman got his first two goals in nearly a year, Craig Anderson made 36 saves and the host Senators beat the Kings 5-1.
Wideman tore a hamstring last November and missed the rest of the season. The 28-year-old had been without a point in his first four games this season.
