The sting for Oilers fans is that the season must continue without Connor McDavid whether we like it or not. While it was tempting for me to take him off the report card, considering he didn't play, I just couldn't continue on without him. Seeing his smiling face is like a beacon of sunlight on an otherwise cloudy day. Ladies and gentlemen, it's report card time.

The Oilers were 5-10 and had eight of their next ten games on the road, prior to last night's game in Anaheim. They desperately needed a win. And they got one.
The win didn't salvage their season, but Teddy Purcell's reaction after scoring the OT winner illustrated how important this win was for the team. "We need to believe in ourselves, and coming from behind tonight and finishing it off -- we needed this," said Purcell post-game.
This group indeed needed it, and Leon Draisaitl, the third overall pick in 2014, factored in on all four goals. He was a beast.
