McDavid was helped off the ice by teammate Zack Kassian and a trainer after crashing into the Flames’ net. The Oilers captain fell to the ice after being challenged by Flames defenceman Mark Giordano, then slid hard into the net.

McDavid is second in the league in scoring with 116 points this season. The Oilers had already been eliminated from playoff contention.
