The Edmonton Oilers are facing a tough spot being down 3-2 in their second round series against the Vancouver Canucks.

To turn things around, they need their captain and top goal scorer to step up.
Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl had a strong performance in Game 2, but McDavid's production has dipped since then. He only has one assist in the last three games, and the Oilers suffered two losses. The recent defeat leaves them on the brink, and to add to the challenge, McDavid is reportedly dealing with an injury, while leading scorer Zach Hyman is also banged up.
Game 6 is shaping up to be a crucial moment for McDavid, perhaps the biggest game of his career so far as Edmonton battles for their season. The Oilers must win to force a Game 7, but the thought of losing to a playoff newcomer in the upstart Canucks, is unsettling for Edmonton, especially with their Stanley Cup aspirations.
Meanwhile, Hyman, who had a 54-goal regular season and early playoff success, hasn't been producing lately. With only one assist in the last four games, the Oilers need more from him to stay alive in the playoffs. It's now or never for Edmonton, but hearing the news of their top players playing through injuries doesn't help matters.
