Lucky breaks have been hard to come by for the Edmonton Oilers in what's been a lost season. Connor McDavid may feel otherwise -- especially this month and against the Colorado Avalanche
The Oilers and the Avalanche meet for the third time this month on Thursday night at Rogers Place.
Edmonton (24-31-4) opened February with a 4-3 overtime loss at home followed by a 4-2 win last Sunday in Denver. Not surprisingly, McDavid is the Oilers' top player with five of the seven goals in the season series. He started the month by scoring twice in the loss, and recorded his third hat trick of the season on Sunday.
