Connor McJesus Leads Oilers To Win Over Leafs [Highlights]

The Oilers are a far better team than their record indicates. Some nights things don't click, but when they do magic is made and you get to see why Connor McDavid is, simply put, McJesus.

Leon Draisaitl and Alex Chiasson picked up a goal and assist each as Edmonton grabbed their second victory of the trip and fifth point.

Oscar Klefbom's single in the first was all the offense of the opening 20 but the floodgates opened in the final 40 minutes of play.

The two sides traded three goals apiece in the second period - each red light coming at even strength despite the Oilers suppressing 1:23 of 5-on-3 time - while the third period calmed down to a three-goal finish.

It was in the 3rd when McJesus' masterpiece unfolded in front of a stunned crowd .

McDavid entered the Leafs' zone, making it seem as though he was waiting for support to join in the rush (all while looking backwards). Then McDavid did a no look deke to defenseman Morgan Rielly, blasted past him and went top-shelf on Michael Hutchinson, who took over for Frederik Andersen early in the second period.

Chiasson sniped his fifth of the season at 13:41 of the second period.

Darnell Nurse tucked his fourth of the year with a laser to open the second period and Kingston's Mike Smith backstopped the Oil with a 32-save performance.

Here is just the highlight of McJesus' filthy goal:
