Connor McDavid racks up 6 points as Edmonton Oilers crush Avalanche

Connor McDavid had three goals and three assists as the Edmonton Oilers pummeled the Colorado Avalanche 6-2 Thursday night at Rogers Place.

It was the first six-point game of McDavid’s career and his second hat trick in the last three games.

Andre Burakovsky scored just 1:20 into the game to give the Avs the lead, but the Oilers took over after that.

Edmonton forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins beat Colorado netminder Adam Werner over the blocker. McDavid fired in a shot on the power play. Only 28 seconds later, Oilers forward Zack Kassian converted a goal-mouth pass from Leon Draisaitl. McDavid sniped another on the power play to make it 4-1 Oilers after one.
