CALGARY, Alberta – Connor McDavid gave Edmonton Oilers a great fear in the team’s last match of the season.

“You are going between anger and rage, and your heart is broken for the guy,” says Oilers coach Ken Hitchcock. “So to get some good news right now we can breathe for a few hours. MRI tells everything, so we will hopefully get through MR. But we are not out of the woods yet. “

“It is the best player in the game. I hope he’s okay, “says Giordano, the flame captain.” I come out to him and hopefully get an answer, but it’s one-on-one. I try to dive to pinch the puck off his stick. It happened so fast. “

In hindsight, Giordano thought maybe he would consider doing another game if he had the chance.

” Of course, with the result that is what it is, if I have to do it all over again. , you almost want to see myself let him go and not hurt him, “he said.” But it’s easy to say that fact. “McDavid kept his left leg for several minutes before he was helped. [19659002] “He is our leader, he is our go-to guy and when you see him being hurt as it goes,” said Oiler’s teammate Leon Draisaitl. “You never want to see what happens to any player, especially he.” [19659002] The amount of sold out Scotiabank Saddledome became silent when McDavid participated by coach.

“I think it is the respect factor. knows what kind of player he is. He’s an honest player, says Edmonton ahead of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. “Everyone in the league, every fan respects it and understands what he means for our team. I expect the same from our fans if it happened to another guy on their team in our building, and I think everyone was a little shocked and just hoping at the best for him. “

McDavid was second in the league in the scoring this season with 116 high career points, 12 behind Tampa Bays Nikita Kucherov. McDavid’s 41 goals matched his career best.

“It’s scary,” said Oiler’s defenseman Darnell Nurse. “He’s the best player in the league. You see him go down so, he’s not a guy who ever goes down and stops. He always jumps back. The guy means so much for not only this team but the organization, that city. think that all kind of kept the spirit there. “

The Oilers, which was eliminated from the playoff concern earlier this week, has missed the postseason 12 times in 13 years.
