The Blackhawks earned their first point of the season with a 3-2 OT loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday night, with Brandon Saad and Brent Seabrook scoring their first goals of the season and Robin Lehner stopping 26 of 28 shots faced in his Chicago debut.
Edmonton completed their fifth straight come-from-behind win with a 4-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night, setting an NHL record for consecutive wins after trailing to open a season. Leon Draisaitl (2G, 1A) and Connor McDavid (1G, 1A) led the way in a third-period comeback that saw the Oilers score three times.
Last season, Chicago went 1-1-1 against Edmonton, dropping a 2-1 OT result at the United Center on Oct. 28 before a 4-0 loss (Nov. 1) and a 6-2 win (Feb. 5) in two meetings north of the border. Patrick Kane led the Blackhawks with a goal and two assists, while McDavid (1G, 3A) and Draisaitl (2G, 2A) led the Oilers with four points each.
