One of the greatest seasons in NHL history reached new heights Saturday night as Rogers Place as Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid had four points in a 4-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks.
It gives McDavid 100 points in his 53rd game of the year.
McDavid went to work early, firing a shot through Thatcher Demko only 47 seconds into the game.
In the second, McDavid stormed down the right wing and set up Jesse Puljujarvi for his 15th of the season. With the game tied at two, McDavid fed Draisaitl for a power play goal. It was Draisaitl’s 500th career point.
Edmonton Oilers win again in Vancouver
The Oilers went on a two-man advantage after the Canucks tied it 3-3. McDavid slid a pass across to Draisaitl, who ripped in a one-timer to give McDavid his 100th point of the season.
The third period was scoreless.
J.T. Miller, Travis Boyd, and Tyler Graovac scored for the Canucks.
Adam Larsson played in his 600th career game. Mike Smith made 22 saves for his 20th win of the season.
The Oilers, 33-18-2, will play in Montreal Monday.
