Connor McDavid has hat trick, Oilers beat Canucks 5-2

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Connor McDavid had a hat trick and an assist, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored twice and added an assist and the Edmonton Oilers beat the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Thursday night.

Leon Draisaitl, the NHL's top scorer last season, had four assists to help the Oilers rebound from a 5-3 loss to the Canucks a night earlier in the opener for both teams.

"The power play was good. The (penalty kill) was good," McDavid said. "I think the hockey games have gone the way I kind of expected, a little bit more high scoring than they might be at this time of year if it was a normal year, and that's across the league."
