Connor McDavid scored a goal and had two assists during Edmonton's surprising 6-4 loss to Chicago in Game 1 of the qualifying round series. He finished the game with three shots on goal and a minus-two rating in 23:21 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: A likely high pick in many playoff fantasy pools, not many expected the Oilers to have trouble with Chicago. He was able to produce three points but Edmonton will need better defensive play and a quick turnaround in this best-of-five series.
