Edmonton scored on the first shot of the game 3:29 into the first period as Benoit Pouliot sent in McDavid on a breakaway and the rookie deked around Toronto goalie Jonathan Bernier for his eighth goal of the season.

Eberle had an empty-net goal with 54 seconds left in the game for his first NHL hat trick. Pouliot notched his fourth assist on the goal.
