Connor McDavid slammed for his reaction on Flames’ disallowed goal

He’s moving on, literally. The Oilers are off to the Western Conference final.


The Calgary Flames’ postseason run came to an end on Thursday night after a disallowed goal controversy…

The hero for Edmonton, captain Connor McDavid, was asked to react to the controversial non-goal after scoring at 5:03 in overtime as the Oilers defeated the Flames 5-4 to win their second-round playoff series 4-1 and move on to the Western Conference final.

His answer has made many fans upset on social media.

In the third period, Forward Blake Coleman was driving the net and falling to the ice while also being pushed by defenseman Cody Ceci as his skate hit the puck on a rebound of Mikael Backlund’s shot. However, the goal would be called back by the on-ice officials, who ruled that Coleman was guilty of a distinct kicking motion.

McDavid commented after the game that he didn’t really see the play and was simply glad it was called back.

While many fans are praising McDavid for his OT winner that gets the Oilers closer to the Stanley Cup, others are slamming him for lying and saying that he did not see the play to make a call on it.

The fact remains: McDavid does not care because he is moving on. McDavid and teammate Leon Draisaitl have both amassed 26 points to lead the playoffs so far.

A disallowed goal is just another fact in McDavid’s playoff run.
