Connor McDavid buried his 28th on a two-man advantage to pull the Oilers even two minutes into the third. The Ducks waddled back in front four minutes later when John Klingberg whizzed a shot from the right wing boards over Skinner’s right shoulder.

The Oilers went on the power play with 3:43 left when Trevor Zegras was nabbed for tripping Tyson Barrie. McDavid hit the post on a one-timer, and the puck hit the post on the resulting rebound as well.

The Oilers, 17-14-1, will play in Nashville on Monday (Face-off Show at 4:30 p.m., game at 6 p.m.).
