Connor McDavid Leads The Edmonton Oilers Again

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

There are nights when you’re not clicking on all cylinders. Then, there are nights when the car’s up on blocks, the engine is taken apart and parts are strewn across the garage.

When you’re having one of the latter nights, and then watch a puck rattle off both of your defencemen and into you net for the apparent game-winner, well, then you’ve got no chance, right?

There’s absolutely no rescuing any point on one of those nights, correct?

“We had nothin’” said head coach Ken Hitchcock, who played the hell out of his best players, got a goal with eight seconds left in regulation and watched his Edmonton Oilers beat Florida 4-3 in a shootout Thursday.

“These games can really help you going forward as a team,” Hitchcock said, “because it’s damned impressive, what they did.”


Below, watch the goals (2 and 1 in the shootout) from McDavid last night, including the game tying goal with eight seconds left.
