McDavid, Draisaitl help unbeaten Oilers defeat Rangers 4-1

NEW YORK (AP) Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers aren't satisfied with their strong start. They know they can improve.

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)."
