During the Toronto Maple Leafs and Edmonton Oilers game last night, an altercation between Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews occurred during the first minute of the second period. Matthews tripped McDavid, and McDavid responded with a shove. As a result, both players received a two-minute penalty.


McDavid's reaction to the incident appears to have garnered attention from fans as it was perceived to be embellished. Despite this incident, the Leafs won the game with a score of 7-4, with John Tavares and Noel Acciari both scoring two goals. McDavid, on the other hand, ended the game with one goal and one assist.

The incident sparked discussion among fans




This season has been McDavid's best in his career. With an average of 22 minutes of ice time per game, he has been a leading scorer in the league with 127 points this season. Matthews has also had a great season, playing in 58 games and averaging 19 minutes of ice time. He has 34 assists and 30 goals and has made up for his 18 penalty minutes by scoring 22 powerplay goals.

The Leafs have won their last two games and are in a strong position to finish the season in second place in the Atlantic, with a four-point lead over the Lightning.

Fans are hopeful that they can extend this lead in their upcoming game against Buffalo.
