The Edmonton Oilers concluded their home preseason schedule with a 5-3 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night at Rexall Place. Forwards Anton Lander, Mark Arcobello and Tyler Pitlick as well as defenseman Taylor Fedun were the four players in the game with Oklahoma City connections.

Arcobello helped the Oilers take a 2-1 at 19:29 of the first period, making a saucer pass to David Perron, who then scored on Rangers goaltender Martin Biron. He also added another assist on Jordan Eberle’s 3rd period goal at 13:15. Arcobello now has a goal and three assists in five preseason games played with the Oilers.

Pitlick had a team-high three hits on the night as well as two shots on net.
