Connor McDavid erupted for four goals, an assist in Monday’s 6-2 victory against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Everybody in hockey knows that McDavid is probably the best player on earth. McDavid started the night tied for 13th in the NHL in scoring, but quickly shot up into the Top 5 in points with the monster night.
“He’s one of the best — if not the best — for a reason,” said Lightning star Steven Stamkos.
“He’s the best or one of the best in the world along with Crosby. He had a heck of a game and proved his value tonight,” Lightning forward Tyler Johnson added. “We got to do a better job against him but you have to give him a lot of credit.”
it’s a pleasure to say as an Edmonton Oilers fan I have watched every moment of McDavid’s career. For me, this is the best yet, because many consider the Tampa Bay Lightning the 2018 Stanley Cup Favorites. Connor takes his game to another level when matched up against other superstars. Leave it to McDavid to make a five-point NHL night look easy! It certainly has not been the season anybody expected in Edmonton. However, Connor McDavid is always worth the price of admission.
