It took the Blackhawks 11:02 to get their first shot on goal, but they made it count with Brent Seabrook ripping home a one-timer on a two-man advantage. Zack Kassian tied it late in the period when he flipped in a rebound for his first of the season.
Cam Talbot stopped Nick Schmaltz on a breakaway in the second period, and the game was tied 1-1 going into the third.
The Blackhawks carried the play in the third, outshooting the Oilers 15-9, but they couldn’t solve Cam Talbot.
In overtime, Leon Draisaitl and McDavid broke in two-on-one. Draisaitl feathered a pass across to McDavid, whose wrist shot eluded Cam Ward.
Talbot made 31 saves for the win in net.
“Both guys had to make a bunch of key stops tonight and keep it 1-1, but those are the games that you want to be in against a team like that on the road in a tough building,” Talbot said.
