EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Jordan Eberle scored a pair of goals in his NHL debut and the Edmonton Oilers got the regular season off to a good start with a 4-0 victory over the rival Calgary Flames on Thursday night.

Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 37 shots for the shutout in his first regular-season start since he injured his back last November.
