McDavid scores victor, Draisaitl with three points as Oilers beat Canucks

"I had Brad Richards, too", said Neal, who has known McDavid since he was still in high-school and he first got to Gary Roberts' summer camp where Neal and other NHLers were working out. We played simple, we played hard, and we did what we had to do to beat this team.

Draisaitl scored 5:42 into the first period off a pass from Kassian to give Edmonton a 1-0 lead. "It's just one game, long season, but you can't start 82 if you don't start No. 1".

A theme we saw a lot the past two seasons, in particular, is the Canucks coming out sluggish out of the gate and taking a while to get anything going for them.

Alexander Edler and Tanner Pearson had the goals for the Canucks, who won their previous five openers.

The Canucks outshot Edmonton 33-22, and head coach Dave Tippett expressed concern with the amount of time the Oilers defence spent in their own end.

"All in all, it was definitely a good road game for us, but there were a couple of minutes that we'd like to have back", Pearson said. "That's the way it goes".

The Oilers started the scoring six minutes into the first period when Kassian won a battle in the crease and fed the puck out to Draisaitl, who beat Markstrom.

Smith handled the puck just fine but was handed a skipping-rock-off-a-calm-lake shot by Edler to tie it in the second, just a second after McDavid slammed his lid back on after it was knocked off.

The Canucks then took a 2-1 lead midway through the third as a point blast by Tyler Myers was tipped past Smith by Pearson. Took McDavid three minutes to draw his first penalty, a blatant hold by J.T. Miller, after the captain was tripped on his first shift with no call. The Oilers captain took a pass at the blue line from Draisaitl and beat three Vancouver defenders before scoring short side on Markstrom for what would be the game victor.

"I'm here to help this team win". "We never crumbled when we got down 2-1". But to play with arguably one of the best players in the world is obviously something you don't get a chance to do every season. Markstrom stopped 19 shots. Tippett won 553 games in his first 14 seasons as an National Hockey League coach with the Coyotes and Stars. Among those making their debuts for the Canucks were rookie defenceman Quinn Hughes, forwards Miller and Micheal Ferland and defencemen Myers and Jordie Benn...

Canucks: At the Calgary Flames on Saturday. It is the 50th season for the Canucks, who have opted not to officially name their captain for this season until their home opener.

Oilers: Host the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.
