Watch: McDavid nets 1st playoff hat trick, someone throws hats

Connor McDavid needed less than 40 minutes to produce a three-goal game in the postseason for the first time in his NHL career. After opening the scoring 19 seconds into Game 2 of the Edmonton Oilers' qualifying-round series against the Chicago Blackhawks, the superstar forward made the highlight reel with an absurd backhand marker off the rush less than four minutes later. Then, McDavid capped off the hat trick late in the second period. Have a GAME, @cmcdavid97! 💥The human highlight reel

Oilers Playoff Gameday: Game 2 Vs. Blackhawks

Game 1 was a disaster. The Oilers jumped out to a 1-0 lead, but found themselves down 4-1 at the conclussion of the first period. The final score of 6-4 indicated a closer game than the one that actually took place. The Oilers were largely dominated in Game 1. This series will be over in three games if that is how the Oilers are going to play. Game 2 provides the Oilers with a chance to turn things around. It gives them a chance to not ‘tip their toes’ in the water, but to dive in and play

Credit where credit is due, the NHL bubbles remain COVID-19 free

It’s time to give some credit where credit is due. I, much like many other hockey observers, were incredibly concerned about how the NHL was going to navigate its return-to-play. How was it going to be possible to bring over 1,200 people into Edmonton and Toronto and keep everyone healthy amid a global health pandemic that’s never been seen before? Well, the NHL stuck to their guns and have done a fine job of keeping everyone safe and healthy. The league announced Monday that they have con
