The Edmonton Oilers season is on the line on Saturday night, but when asked about it, Connor McDavid kept his comments short and sweet.

In game five against the Vancouver Canucks, the Edmonton Oilers offense stumbled once again, as they fell 3-2 on the night, giving the Canucks a 3-2 lead in this best of seven series. Now, the Oilers face a must-win game at home on Saturday night, and with all the pressure on his shoulders, Connor McDavid has commented on what may be the biggest game of his career.
"I can stand up here and give you all the cliches you guys want to hear but we gotta win one game tonight and that's just what it comes down to."

"We know what's on the line"


After a stellar regular season, McDavid once again faces the prospect of his team losing early in the post-season, and with Stanley Cup aspirations from the loaded team around him, this game could decide the future for the Edmonton Oilers. McDavid's comments show that he's clearly focused on the upcoming game and nothing else, and after what we've seen from him in the playoffs in recent years, he certainly shouldn't be bet against.
Ultimately, this game means everything to this team as McDavid and Draisaitl's free agency is coming up in the very near future, so unless they can get past the rival Canucks, it may mean this Oilers team could make some drastic changes very soon.
