Holding a 2-1 lead over the Maple Leafs, Oilers defenseman Tyson Barrie passed the puck to McDavid in their own zone. The lightning-fast center skated the length of the ice through the Leafs to deke the puck past goaltender Frederick Anderson for the goal.NHL Design Face Masks | NHL Design Face Coverings

They have done a complete 180 since then. Even though their upcoming schedule is going to be a major test, they have put themselves in a strong position.

In order to play through the pandemic, nearly every member of every NHL organization has made sacrifices. They've also agreed to a stringent set of rules that have already been enhanced twice after several teams experienced COVID-19 outbreaks last month. Besides arriving early for daily coronavirus testing, shifting to all-virtual meetings and staying socially distant even in the locker room, players, coaches and their family members have been asked to limit all social interactions away from home.
Islanders: Host New Jersey on Thursday night to open a three-game series with the Devils, including two on the road.
Allen: Factoring in ADP, I'm skipping past Hedman and Petry, as both were picked in the first five rounds of fantasy drafts, and settling on the defenseman who sits third in fantasy points per game this season. Drew Doughty had an ADP of 112.6, making him the 25th defenseman off the board in drafts. The fact that he's top three at the moment is a pleasant and welcome surprise. He spiked to 2.2 fantasy points per game back in the 2017-18 season, but has otherwise been a consistent producer of 1.9 or so fantasy points per game. Doughty is producing 2.5 fantasy points per game this season.Minnesota Wild NHL Design Face Masks
Dave Tippett, Edmonton Oilers. In the great "coaching vs. construction" debate, there's no question the problem with the Edmonton Oilers is one of construction. Just like Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl can only drag this group so far, Tippett can only play the cards he has been dealt. His contract runs through next season. Someone might have to pay the price if the Oilers flame out in the postseason again -- or fail to make it. That might be the Tipp-ing point.
