McDavid's game-tying PPG

Marc-Andre Fleury denies Leon Draisaitl's shot, but Connor McDavid finds the rebound and buries a wrister to tie the game at 2 on a power play.

"It is different; to say it's a normal game would be lying," McDavid said on playing against Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby. "Obviously, he's someone I've looked up to my whole life. To play against him is fun. It was probably to my advantage, it's easier for me to get up to play against him than it is for him to get up to play against me."

"I think guys like Connor are coming into the League and having a lot of success early," Crosby said. "They're getting a great opportunity to play and deservedly so. You see some of the young guys that are having an impact in the League, so I don't think they'll be put in those situations if they can't handle them. They've shown they can handle them. These guys are elite players for a reason and they're showing it."
