McDavid focused on NHL playoffs, not 100 points in 56 games
Connor McDavid needs seven points in Edmonton’s final five games to reach 100 in the NHL’s 56-game season. It’s a milestone that could go down in hockey history alongside Wayne Gretzky’s 50 goals in 39 games. But the Oilers captain is far more worried about being in prime form when the playoffs begin. It’ll be just the second true playoff appearance in six seasons for someone widely believed to be the best hockey player in the world. McDavid is the front-runner for the Hart Trophy as NHL MVP and hungry to chase the Stanley Cup.
