Oilers prove they are more than McDavid in playoff win

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Winning the Connor McDavid lottery two years ago was the key moment in the turnaround for an Edmonton Oilers team that had spent most of a decade at the bottom of the standings.

But after McDavid put together an NHL-leading 100-point season to lead Edmonton back to the playoffs for the first time since 2006, the Oilers showed they have a lot more than just the league's next great superstar.

McDavid scored his only even-strength point of the series with an empty-netter in the final second of Edmonton's 3-1 series-clinching victory in Game 6 on Saturday night. He contributed plenty in other ways and got lots of help to send the Oilers into the second round against Anaheim.
