After a lacklustre 3-2 loss to the Washington Capitals at home earlier this week, the Oilers pumped the Arizona Coyotes by a score of 8-2. Connor McDavid led the way with two goals and four points, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored a pair of goals, and the team got depth contributions from Klim Kostin and Derek Ryan.
