Is Connor McDavid Injured? Oilers Fans Concerned Over Recent Video Footage

The Edmonton Oilers will have the chance to eliminate the Kings on Saturday night and move on to the second round.

To avoid being eliminated from the playoffs early, Los Angeles will exert more effort than they have in the series.

The best player in the NHL appears to be hampered by an injury, so they may get some unanticipated assistance.

On Twitter, a clip from the Oilers’ practice session showed Connor McDavid clearly struggling with a leg ailment.

This is said to be related to the blow that Drew Doughty delivered to him in game three.

“I would think this relates back to the big hit he took from Doughty in Game 3. Broadcast showed him shaking off the left leg multiple times after the collision. Two day break obviously doesn’t hurt but would think you want to wrap it up Saturday and avoid a G7 for some more rest.”

The Oilers’ potential of victory would plummet if they were to play without McDavid.

The games have been close throughout the series, but if McDavid is hurt, the Kings may gain the upper hand.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me?
