Oilers' Connor McDavid: Carries offense in loss

McDavid scored a goal on five shots, dished three assists and added five hits in Wednesday's 9-6 loss to the Flames in Game 1.

With multiple points in seven of eight playoff contests (five goals, 13 assists), the superstar center has elevated his game yet again. He's added 32 shots on net, 26 hits and a plus-9 rating, but it'll take a team effort if the Oilers are to prevail in the first playoff Battle of Alberta since 1991.

The Oilers haven’t won a first-round series since 2017 and it was a narrative McDavid was going to change. McDavid recorded his sixth multi-point game of the 2022 First Round but his teammates all said the same thing about his performance: his “will to win” stood out most.
