With a dazzling goal and two assists already secured halfway through Game 5, Connor McDavid isn't just playing hockey.

He's rewriting the definition of a playoff legend. His performance tonight adds yet another chapter to what could be the greatest playoff run in NHL history.
Connor McDavid has the highest points-per-game average in NHL history when facing elimination.
In moments when the pressure would suffocate the average player, McDavid thrives. This season, his ability to escalate his game during critical elimination matches has not only been impressive but historic. Whether it's this year's harrowing series or past playoff challenges, McDavid's consistency in high-stakes games offers concrete evidence of his unparalleled prowess in critical moments.
Moreover, McDavid is on the verge of surpassing a record held by none other than Wayne Gretzky—the most points scored in a single playoff run. While Gretzky's record stands at 47 points, McDavid is rapidly closing in, boasting 41 points so far.
With the Oilers poised to turn the tide in Game 5 and push the series back to Alberta, the air is thick with anticipation. Despite a daunting 0-3 deficit at the outset, the Oilers' spirit has remained unbroken. Now, as they edge closer to a historic comeback, the belief within the team and among fans is palpable, hinting that the impossible might just be within reach.
As the series unfolds, McDavid continues to demonstrate why many are beginning to view him as the most clutch player the NHL playoffs have ever seen. With each game, he not only elevates his team but also cements his legacy as one of the greats in the sport.
