1 Comment

Just like virtually everyone else, Sidney Crosby notes that Connor McDavid‘s speed stands out among his many, many impressive qualities.

It didn’t take long for McDavid to show what he can do in Tuesday’s intriguing matchup between the Edmonton Oilers and Pittsburgh Penguins.

Through the first 20 minutes, McDavid easily made up for an early mistake by racking up two assists thanks to his speed and the sort of transition game that can allow for. Both of his linemates (Jordan Eberle and Patrick Maroon) have a goal and an assist apiece as they’ve really shown a knack for working well with No. 97.

The most exhilarating of the two goals – Maroon’s tally – can be seen in the video above.

His speed was also on full display in setting up Eberle’s 1-1 tally:

Should we expect more magic from the first matchup between No. 87 and No. 97? Let’s hope so.
