Draisaitl, McDavid combine for 11 points in barnburner vs. Senators

"We talked about it, went over it, and I thought everyone was working a little bit harder", said Neal "For us, the power play is a big part of our game, so if we can get that going it will help us a lot".

This coming week is a nice change of pace for the Oilers, as they play in just two games and will get some much-needed rest. And that's in a 56-game season.

As many points as McDavid and Draisaitl have put up, the Oilers are still in fifth place in the North Division with a 5-6-0 record.

Kevin Hayes scored a power-play goal with 37.3 seconds remaining in overtime to lift host Philadelphia past NY. A year earlier, they had 178 points and missed out.

The great Connor McDavid continues to dominate and earned another five points in Sunday's winning effort. They wouldn't be in a playoff spot if the season ended today.

The Senators scored their first of the night almost 90 seconds later.

The teams will complete the two-game set in Edmonton on Tuesday night. Though nothing is ever guaranteed in the NHL, Ottawa has been horrendous out of the gate with a 1-7-1 record so far and have a goal differential of -22.

Things didn't improve after that, and the Oilers took a 5-1 lead after 20 minutes of play.

Detroit has gone winless in its last six games (0-4-2).

Despite their recent struggles, however, the Flames provide plenty of challenges to the Oilers.

Barrie, 29, signed a one-year deal with the Oilers having spent last season with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Edmonton Oilers Connor McDavid (97) celebrates his overtime goal with Tyson Barrie (22) to defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 during National Hockey League action at Rogers Place in Edmonton, January 30, 2021. They now sit with a 5-6 record and should be able to improve to.500 for the first time since January 14, though as mentioned above, nothing is guaranteed in the National Hockey League. They opened the season with a 5-3 home win over the Maple Leafs but have not won a game since, losing eight consecutive bouts.

Brady Tkachuk has been one of the few positives this season.

The Oilers are expected to have Mikko Koskinen between the pipes in this one after he had the night off on Sunday.
