McDavid surpasses Gretzky as Oilers wallop Panthers

After scoring a combined four goals in the first three games of the Stanley Cup Final, the Edmonton Oilers exploded on Saturday night with eight goals to extend their season and send the series back to Florida.

The Oilers chased Sergei Bobrovsky out of the net with five goals on 16 shots In their 8-1 win over the Florida Panthers.

The netminder had previously been a brick wall, leading his team to a 3-0 series lead, but Saturday was not his night.

To add the cherry on top, Connor McDavid surpassed Wayne Gretzky for the most assists in a single postseason, notching his 32nd helper of the playoffs.

McDavid scored his first goal of the Stanley Cup Final while adding three assists for a four-point night.

Mattias Janmark broke the scoreless draw early in the first period with a short-handed goal to give Edmonton the lead.

Adam Henrique then added to the tally and Edmonton never looked back en route to the dominant win.

The Oilers will try to keep their season going in game five, which is scheduled for this Tuesday in Florida.
