WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Edmonton coach Todd McLennan made no apology for his bias toward Oilers star Connor McDavid.
McLennan only had to watch McDavid score twice and add two assists as the Oilers overcame a three-goal deficit to beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-4 Tuesday night on Darnell Nurse's goal 1:25 into overtime.
"He's our captain. He's our leader," McLellan said of McDavid. "He's, in my opinion, the best player on earth right now and he decided that he was going to will his team to a win."
