McDavid, who tore the PCL in his left knee in Edmonton's season finale against the Calgary Flames on April 6, had two shots on goal in 20:38 of ice time.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (shorthanded) and Riley Sheahan scored for the Oilers. Mike Smith allowed two goals on 17 shots through the second period for Edmonton, and Mikko Koskinen made 13 saves in relief.

Sheahan got the Oilers to within 3-2 at 10:36 of the third, but Stepan scored at 12:43 to make it 4-2.

Arizona was 0-for-5 on the power play. Edmonton was 0-for-2.
