Morning, folks!

Big night tonight as, win or lose, the Edmonton Oilers will probably still be playing the Winnipeg Jets in the playoffs.

I kid.

Of course, it’s a huge night in the Connor McDavid race to 100 points in 56 games. Our heroes’ hero needs a measly 19 points in 10 GP to get the job done. As Jeff noted yesterday, that sounds like more than it is for a guy like McDavid. Sure, 19 points is a decent season for some guys, but it’s merely a typical 10 game stretch for the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be.


Poor Evan.
