Connor McDavid stars as Edmonton Oilers blank struggling Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0

Connor McDavid had a goal and two assists, and the Edmonton Oilers beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0 on Sunday.

Darnell Nurse scored twice in the third period. Mattias Ekholm had a goal and an assist for the Oilers, who snapped a two-game losing streak by shutting down the struggling Penguins.

Calvin Pickard made 41 saves for Edmonton. He left the game briefly near the end of the second period after Pittsburgh forward Bryan Rust ran into him at the goalmouth. Pickard returned at the start of the third to finish his second shutout of the season.

Tristan Jarry stopped 38 shots for Pittsburgh. The Penguins have lost six of their past seven and were blanked in back-to-back home games for the first time since 2004.
