I’ll be the first to admit I don’t know much about hockey. I can understand what’s going on as the players move up and down the ice, I know when to cheer for a goal or a fight and I know that there are three periods in a game. Aside from that though, I can’t tell you much about the sport.
But if there’s one thing I do get about hockey, or sports in general, it’s understanding when someone is RATTLED.
And there is no man in the world who looks more rattled than Connor McDavid looks right now.

The Oilers may have prevented the Ducks from winning four straight — they smoked Anaheim by a score of 7-1 in Game 6 — but McDavid didn’t score a single point. In fact, the Oilers are 2-1 in the playoffs when McDavid hasn’t put a point on the board.
Is Edmonton better without McDavid?
Either way, the Oilers are now traveling to Anaheim to face off with the eventual Stanley Cup Champion Ducks, and they’re gonna get obliterated tonight.
McDavid hasn’t been effective — past four games he has three losses and a point-less outing — and his face in these pictures shows it.
4-2 Ducks, book it.
