Oilers win on McDavid's shootout goal

ST. LOUIS—Connor McDavid hasn't always looked like a natural in shootouts.

The work he's put in showed up last night.

McDavid scored in the shootout after Oscar Klefbom tied it late in the third period as the Edmonton Oilers edged the St. Louis Blues 3-2 last night.

McDavid improved to 7-for-13 in shootouts for his career. It was his fifth game-deciding shootout goal.
