The second match in the Battle of Alberta didn’t have as many goals as Game 1, which was a 9-6 victory for Calgary, but it still delivered plenty of thrills and excitement in what has become must-see entertainment.

Connor McDavid notched one goal and one assist in Friday’s 5-3 victory for Edmonton. He extended his multi-point streak to five straight games. McDavid trails just Wayne Gretzky (8), Tony Currie (7), Darryl Sittler (7), Evgeni Malkin (6) and Dale Hawerchuk (6) for the longest runs of that nature in NHL playoff history. McDavid also became the fastest active player to hit 20 points in a single postseason and the fastest among any player since Mario Lemieux in 1992 after he accomplished the feat in just nine games.

Another milestone was reached in the other matchup of the night in the Stanley Cup Playoffs between the Carolina Hurricanes and New York Rangers. Sebastian Aho scored his 18th career playoff goal to tie Rod Brind’Amour, who serves as head coach of the Hurricanes now, for second place on the franchise’s all-time list. He is just one behind Eric Staal for the top spot.
