More like Connor McPerfect.

You can't give Connor McDavid this much open ice.

Well, you could, but then things like this happen, as the Nashville Predators found out first hand.

McDavid isn't the eventual goal scorer here -- it's his linemate Jordan Eberle that gets the honors this time -- but the amount of open ice he has is the reason this play happens. This year's No. 1 overall pick had his head up all the way and saw Eberle ready for the tap in goal that gave the Oilers the 1-0 lead early.

The rest is just good old Connor McDavid magic.
