Cody Eakin smacked home a loose puck for his third goal of the year to get Vegas on the board with 20 seconds left in the opening period. After a Marcus Granlund goal for the Oilers, Shea Theodore weaved through the Edmonton defense and slipped home his second goal of the season. McDavid potted his second goal of the night early in the third period and the 4-2 edge held through the final horn.
