VANCOUVER - Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers have accomplished their first goal of the season — making the playoffs. A 5-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Monday cemented Edmonton’s spot in the post-season but the Oilers captain said the hard work is far from over. Just 41 seconds earlier, McDavid picked off a Canucks pass in the neutral zone, skated into Vancouver territory and blasted a shot at Holtby. The Canucks tied the game at 1-1 before the end of the first, thanks to Schmidt’s fifth goal of the season. The Oilers hold a 4-2 edge in the season series between the two sides with four games to go.
