Connor McDavid dominates as Oilers wallop Panthers to stay alive in Stanley Cup

EDMONTON, Alberta — Connor McDavid scored his first goal of the Stanley Cup Final as part of a four-point performance, and the Edmonton Oilers routed the Florida Panthers 8-1 in Game 4 on Saturday night to avoid being eliminated in a sweep.

The Oilers scored five goals on their first 16 shots to chase playoff MVP candidate goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky early in the second period.

McDavid had three assists to reach 32 and pass Wayne Gretzky for the most in a single postseason.

Edmonton got a goal shorthanded from Mattias Janmark three minutes in to get the already fired up crowd into it and a 5-on-3 goal later that ended an 0 for 12 drought on the power play in the series.
