Vancouver Canucks fans shared their frustration at the referees for their obvious favorotism towards Edmonton Oilers' Connor McDavid in game two.

The Oilers managed to win the second game against the Canucks last night in Vancouver to tie the series at 1. Strong performances from Edmonton's big guns (Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid both scoring four points), helped them win in overtime.
