Edmonton Oilers superstar Connor McDavid's revealed his playoff superstitions.

For Game 6 of the Western Conference finals against the Dallas Stars, he busted out the same outfit he wore for games 4 and 5: grey suit, white shirt, brown belt, and grey pants. It seems to be working wonders.

When he first rocked that getup, the Oilers were down 2-1 in the series, but they turned things around with a solid 5-2 win. Then, in Game 5, they sealed the deal with a 3-1 victory in Dallas. Now, with a chance to clinch the Conference for the first time in his career, McDavid strutted onto the ice in front of the roaring Oilers crowd, ready to make some magic happen.

Then, he delivered. The Oilers' power play, which had been scoreless through four games, suddenly came alive in Game 5 with two goals from Ryan-Nugent-Hopkins. Those were also the first two power play goals of any team this series. The only other special teams goal was a Mattias Janmark go-ahead goal in game 4. It's truly been the difference in the series.

McDavid kept that special teams momentum going, scoring a beauty of a goal in the first period of Game 6, thanks to a slick pass from Leon Draisaitl.

And just to make sure everyone got the message, he set up Zach Hyman for another power play goal later in the frame.

It's moments like these that remind us why McDavid is considered one of the best in the game. He's stepping up when it matters most, leading his team with style and finesse. So, Oil town, get ready to party—because if this keep up, it looks like 200 days after being in 30th place in the NHL, your new coach Kris Knoblauch and the beloved Orange and blue core will be making history tonight.
