Connor McDavid’s Play

from Emily Kaplan of ESPN,

"We've let one guy beat us a few nights now," Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk said following Sunday's loss. "Just back to the drawing board and figure out a way to stop him. Pretty much, they've got one player that plays half the game and he's playing some great hockey right now and we've got to find a way to stop that."

Given the layers to McDavid's contributions of late, it'll be like halting a freight train:

  • He can effortlessly attack the offensive zone with unparalleled speed.

  • He can execute under pressure to keep a play alive.

  • He battles defensively to create offense.

  • He's engaged physically, throwing the second-most hits (12) for Edmonton in this Battle of Alberta series, and has levied its third-most (33) through 10 playoff games.
