Watch: McDavid's lethal snipe puts him back in points lead

Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

The Vancouver Canucks kept the Edmonton Oilers off the scoresheet for nearly two periods Saturday, but Connor McDavid wasn't going to let it go on any longer.

The Oilers captain took a feed from Andrej Sekera, cut across the middle and whipped one past Canucks goaltender Richard Bachman for his 25th goal of the season.

It was also McDavid's 80th point, which moved him past Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand and back into top spot in the NHL in the Art Ross Trophy race.

The goal held up as the winner, the Oilers taking a 2-0 decision.
