McDavid's OT winner ends Maple Leafs' winning streak

McDavid's OT winner ends Maple Leafs' winning streak”

Draisaitl and Tyson Barrie each added two assists for the Oilers, who halted a two-game slide.

"We got the win, which is all that matters", said Matthews, who has scored in four straight appearances.

Maybe it'll help get general manager Ken Holland's reclamation-project players to start to find some production to go with their "work in progress" attempts to find their fits on this team, despite a mini training camp with no pre-season games. One night it's a little bit of a lull.

"It sounds so cliche but all areas need to be riding together and that hasn't happened for us yet".

McDavid redirected Leon Draisaitl's pass, earning his seventh goal of the campaign.

Notes: Edmonton and Toronto will play five more times in the all-Canadian North Division.McDavid recorded his fourth straight multi-point game.

Connor McDavid scored his second goal of the night 42 seconds into overtime as the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 on Saturday.

McDavid ended the Leafs' four-game winning streak, but took nothing more than a nibble out of Toronto's buoyancy. Andersen is tied for the league-lead in goalie wins with a 4-2-0 record and he has a 2.84 goals-against average and a.896 save percentage for the season.

After defeating the Oilers in Toronto on January 22, the Maple Leafs won twice over the Flames in Calgary.

"I wouldn't say we've had any surprises", coach Sheldon Keefe said of the first 10 games.

"I think the thing I like most of all, for the most part, we've defended really well as a team, not flawless, but we've defended - I guess, well maybe is not the right term, we've defended hard".

The Leafs managed to avoid taking a penalty in the first period - though the Oilers did get a penalty shot - but were behind 2-1 heading into the intermission.

On the heels of Thursday's game that lacked much flow with 11 combined power plays, the teams traded chances early - including Tyler Ennis missing the net on a penalty shot after Lehtonen saved a goal by covering the puck with his glove in the crease - in a fast-paced opening 20 minutes before Edmonton nudged in front when Kahun scored his first with the Oilers at 11:28.

"That's encouraging moving forward, knowing that we can play a lot better, but that we're still getting points, we're still winning".

The Oilers and Maple Leafs get underway tonight at 5 p.m. MT.
