McDavid's Oilers take on Crosby's Penguins

Pittsburgh Penguins at Edmonton Oilers

  1. The Penguins have earned at least one point in 15 consecutive meetings with the Oilers dating back to December 2007, their third longest point-streak versus any single opponent. The last 11 Pittsburgh-Edmonton games have all been decided by two goals or fewer.
  2. Pittsburgh defeated Toronto in its last game, 3-0, and outscored the Maple Leafs, 2-0, in the third period. However, the Penguins are even in third-period goal differential for the season after finishing in third last year (+33).
  3. The Oilers lost at home against Nashville on Saturday, giving up two goals in the second period on their way to a 3-0 loss. They have scored just one goal in the second period this season, fewest in the NHL.
  4. Kris Letang had a goal and assist against Toronto and now has eight points on the season. The only Penguins defenseman with more points through six games of a season was Sergei Zubov in 1995-96 (10).
  5. Connor McDavid has played in 215 games in his young career, putting up 267 total points. Sidney Crosby (296) and Alex Ovechkin (268) are the only other active players who notched at least 250 points in the first 215 games of their careers.
  6. The Penguins have the second-oldest average roster age of any team this season (28 years, 177 days). The Oilers have the fourth youngest (26 years, 38 days).

The Edmonton Oilers didn't have wait long to face the Pittsburgh Penguins' duo of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

And Edmonton coach Todd McLellan believes he has a pair of players just as formidable in Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.

The Oilers look for a rare win over the Penguins as they continue a homestand against top-tier teams on Tuesday night.

Edmonton hasn't beaten Pittsburgh in regulation since Jan. 10, 2014, going 1-5-2.

And since McDavid's rookie season in 2015-16, the Oilers have dropped three one-goal decisions to the Penguins in Western Canada.

"We got to try and get a big win against a team that knows how to win games," McDavid said after practice on Monday.

Crosby -- now in his 14th season -- has taken home more than his share of hardware including two MVP titles, two scoring championships and three Stanley Cups.

But McDavid could not point to one facet of No. 87's game that stands out.

"It's his full 200-foot game," Edmonton's captain said hours after being named the league's second star of the week. "He's dominant in the faceoff circle. Solid defensively and, obviously, his offense speaks for itself.

"He's a guy that's kind of that perfect mix of everything. He's got that flash, but he's also got a grind to him that is hard to play against."

It's hard to perceive Crosby as struggling offensively, but he's logged just five assists through six games. In seven career games versus the Oilers in Edmonton, Crosby has one goal and seven helpers.

Pittsburgh (3-1-2) opened a four-game Canadian road trip Saturday with a 3-0 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs behind two goals and an assist from Malkin.

Malkin is the Pens' top producer this season with three three-point games. He's also

collected three goals and nine assists on the season.

A two-time scoring champion, Malkin has five goals and an assist in a five-game points streak against the Oilers. Pittsburgh has never lost in regulation -- 9-0-2 -- to Edmonton when Malkin notches at least one point.

McDavid (four goals, seven assists in six games) is an MVP and the reigning two-time scoring champion. He's also posted two goals and five assists in four career games versus the Pens.

"He's a great player. He's done an amazing job since he's gotten into the league," Crosby told the team's official website. "He's off to another great start.

"He's always a challenge to play against. You've got to make sure you're ready to go."

Pittsburgh will also have to watch out for Draisaitl, who has just two goals and four assists in six games, but is always dangerous.

"(Pittsburgh) sounds like our team with Connor and Leon when they're playing well," McLellan noted Monday. "We should be a tough matchup for them. They should be talking about what it's like with 97 and 29."

Tuesday's tilt at Rogers Place is the Oilers' fourth of six straight against teams that recorded at least 100 points last season. Edmonton (3-3-0) faces the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals on Thursday before traveling for a rematch with the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

The Oilers' three-game winning streak ended with a 3-0 loss to Nashville last Saturday.
