James Neal had a set of objectives and Connor McDavid had a goal and three helps as the Edmonton Oilers won their 2nd in a row to start the season, defeating the Los Angeles Kings 6-5 in an offending slugfest on Saturday.

Zack Kassian, Joakim Nygard and Darnell Nurse also scored for the Oilers (2-0-0).

Dustin Brown, Trevor Lewis, Anze Kopitar, Michael Amadio and Drew Doughty replied for the Kings (0-1-0).

The Oilers got a bit of a fluke goal just 53 seconds into the opening duration as McDavid muscled his way through the middle and sent a centring pass that deflected off of Los Angeles defenceman Matt Roy and previous goalie Jonathan Quick.
