Leading the Edmonton Oilers is Conner McDavid with 49 points from 19 goals and 30 assists. Many fans are excited about the potential behind McDavid, quickly making him a fan favorite of the Oilers. Even Wayne Gretzky has made comment on Conner McDavid’s success potential, comparing him to some of the greatest names in NHL history.
“I don’t think there’s any question that Connor’s the best 19-year-old hockey player I’ve ever seen, and I saw (Mark) Messier. I saw (Mario) Lemieux. I saw (Guy) Lafleur. This kid is special.”
The Tampa Bay Lightning have maintained a strong record this season, but there is no doubt the Oilers still have great potential in tonight’s game. In their last match, the Lightning beat the Oilers 5-2. Will the Oilers win at home tonight and reclaim victory over the Lightning or will the Lightning strike them down in Edmonton?
It is not how good you are. It is how good you want to be.
