Connor McDavid’s hat trick led the way for the Edmonton Oilers against the Chicago Blackhawks.
I tried to warn everyone that game two was a must-win game for the Chicago Blackhawks. Teams that go up 2-0 in the NHL’s all-time five-game series are 55-1. The only team that came back from it was the 1985 New York Islanders who won four Stanley Cups to start the 80s. If the Blackhawks were to win the game, it would have been really hard to come back for the Oilers. Now it feels like Edmonton, who is a better team, has all of the momenta.
Edmonton Oilers superstar Connor McDavid is the best hockey player in the world and everybody knows it. Well, he had a hat trick to lead the way to victory for the Oilers. He used his incredible speed and skill to create three goals. His third goal for the hat trick put the Oilers ahead in the game for good. This was also the second game in a row where the Blackhawks relinquished a goal to McDavid within the first few minutes of the game.
