EDMONTON, Alberta – Tyler Pitlick scored the game-winner as the Edmonton Oilers came away with a 3-2 victory over the winless Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.
Anton Slepyshev and Jordan Eberle scored for the Oilers, who improved to 3-1-0.
Lee Stempniak had two goals for the Hurricanes, who are 0-1-2.
Slepyshev unleashed a wicked wrist shot that beat Carolina goalie Cam Ward glove-side for his first career NHL goal 1:51 into the game.
Edmonton made it 2-0 midway through the first as Eberle's backhanded pass attempt bounced off Hurricanes defender Ron Hainsey and into the net for his third of the season.
Pitlick added to the Oilers' lead, picking the corner off a faceoff win in the Canes' zone.
