A Connor McDavid hat trick helped lead the way for the Edmonton Oilers as they mounted three comebacks to beat the Chicago Blackhawks Thursday night.
The Oilers battled back from 2-1, 3-2 and 4-3 deficits and got some big goals in big moments.
Zach Hyman broke open the scoring halfway through the first before Connor McDavid notched two tallies in the second period. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored 24 seconds into the third period and then halfway through that frame, McDavid used a screen from a defenceman to snipe home his hat trick goal.
With 37.6 seconds left on the clock in the final frame and the game tied at 5, it was the birthday boy — Leon Draisaitl — who scored his fourth goal of the year to give the Oilers a victory.
There was much more to talk about through the game that saw 17 powerplays and 40 penalty minutes divied up.
Let’s take a look at all the highlights from that crazy affair down below.
