The Edmonton Oilers needed their star to step up and he did as Connor McDavid had four points in Saturday's win and broke an NHL record in the process.

Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers were facing a do-or-die situation on Saturday night with the Florida Panthers up 3-0 in the 2024 Stanley Cup Final. With their backs against the wall, Edmonton came out flying and did what no one could have predicted - chased Sergei Bobrovsky from the crease.
Edmonton scored eight goals on Saturday, which is the most by any team in a game during the Stanley Cup Playoffs this year, surpassing their previous high of seven against the Los Angeles Kings in the first round. The Oilers' depth certainly stepped up tonight, but it was Connor McDavid who stole the show and played a key role in the victory.
During the win, Connor McDavid picked up four points (one goal, three assists) and now sits at 38 points in 22 games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. With his third assist of the night, McDavid surpassed hockey legend Wayne Gretzky for most assists in a single post-season with 32.
"The new record holder for most assists in a single #StanleyCup Playoffs in NHL history.

Connor McDavid."

"CONNOR MCDAVID HAS BROKEN THE RECORD FOR MOST ASSISTS IN A SINGLE POSTSEASON 🍎🚨"

Year after year, Connor McDavid continues to do things that make hockey fans stunned and Saturday night's performance was no exception. When all is said and done and McDavid hangs up his skates, there's no question he'll be a top-five player in the history of the National Hockey League.
McDavid will need another big game on Tuesday night as the Florida Panthers have a second chance this series at winning their first Stanley Cup in franchise history, this time in front of their home fans. There's no doubt that Paul Maurice's group has already brushed this game off and are ready for Game 5 in a couple of days and for the opportunity in front of them. Puck drop for Game 5 on Tuesday is set for 8 pm ET on CBC and Sportsnet.
