Draisaitl's 3-point game lifts Oilers past Predators 4-2

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Edmonton has a lousy record against the Nashville Predators. Leon Draisaitl and Mike Smith helped the Oilers take a step toward changing that Tuesday night.

Draisaitl had two goals and an assist and the Oilers beat the Nashville Predators 4-2.

The Predators came into the game with a 14-1 record against Edmonton since Oct. 29, 2014. In that time, Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne had won 12 consecutive starts, but he was outplayed by Mike Smith in the Edmonton net on the night.
