McDavid, Oilers face tough task at league-leading Washington

WASHINGTON -- Connor McDavid, the 20-year superstar, against the NHL team with the best record. That's the matchup Friday night when the Oilers visit the Capitals. Based on the first meeting, Washington already knows Edmonton is no mere one-man gang.

McDavid, the league's top scorer with 68 points, is one of eight Oilers between 11-22 goals. Defenseman Kris Russell isn't among them, but he scored the game-winning goal in the third period in Edmonton's 4-3 victory at Florida on Wednesday. McDavid added to his points total with an assist on the play while the Oilers (33-20-8) returned to the win column following a 4-1 loss at Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Another defenseman, Oscar Klefbom, scored in the win. Edmonton has won three of four.
