- Connor McDavid tallied his 600th career point last night on his goal. He became the sixth-fastest player to do so in NHL history behind Jari Kurri, Mike Bossy, Peter Stastny, Mario Lemieux and Wayne Gretzky.
- Another impressive note from last night: Leon Draisaitl became the third player in the last 30 years to score 15 goals and 15 assists in fewer than 15 team games. The only others? Jaromir Jagr in 1995-96 and Mario Lemieux in 1992-93.
- Couldn’t be happier for McLeod getting his first NHL goal last night. Right place, right time, and he was able to get his stick on one. I’ll have a little piece later this morning talking about the goal.
- Also in the hop for today is another Oilers In Seven. There’s some good, but lots of concerning stuff too. Like Tippett mentioned, there’s lots to yearn for at 5×5 from this team.
What they’re saying…
Another late-game crusher for Blues in 5-4 loss to Oilersor the second night in a row, the Blues wiped out a two-goal deficit, showing determination and resiliency. For the second night in a row, overtime seemed imminent.And yet, for the second night in a row, the Blues came away empty-handed. Without a point. This time it was a 5-4 loss to the Edmonton Oilers before a sellout crowd of 18,096 at Enterprise Center.Coming on the heels of a late 3-2 loss in Carolina, it’s the third loss in a row for the Blues (0-2-1) who fell to 8-4-2 on the season. Edmonton improved to 11-3-0.The Blues controlled most of the first period. They got a power play goal from Jordan Kyrou. And with the period winding down, they were set to go into the locker room up 1-0.Then Connor McDavid happened. With a mere 4.1 seconds remaining in the period, McDavid took a pass from Zach Hyman and skated in for a close-in wrist shot that trickled past goalie Jordan Binnington and in.Colton Parayko, who has struggled lately, could have played it better. He had good position on McDavid but couldn’t get a body on him or a stick on the puckFor McDavid, it was only his fourth goal in 16 games over his career against the Blues. But his 10th goal of this season extended his current point streak to 14 games and gave him 600 points in his still-young NHL career. At 24 years, 305 days old, McDavid is the eighth-youngest player in NHL history to reach 600 career points. – Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
