Connor McDavid has his first goal of this series against the Anaheim Ducks — and it was a beauty.
(Another spectacular McDavid goal? Get out!)
With one assist so far in this series, McDavid brought the crowd in Edmonton to its feet with a quick stop and cut back to his left against Sami Vatanen, followed immediately with a perfect wrist shot top corner on John Gibson.
“McWow!” is right.
The Oilers fell behind 3-0 in the first period, but that goal from McDavid tied the game before the midway point of the second period.
The celebration didn’t last long.
Just 48 seconds later, Chris Wagner‘s shot from the side boards, a rather harmless looking attempt, was misplayed by Cam Talbot to put Anaheim back in front by a score of 4-3. That’s the score heading into the third period.
