Watch: McDavid absolutely burns Flames for 2nd goal of game

Perry Nelson / USA Today Sports

New season, same explosive Connor McDavid.

The reigning Hart Trophy winner picked up right where he left off in the Edmonton Oilers' opening game of 2017-18 on Wednesday night, pouncing on a loose puck in his own zone, going the length of the ice, and firing home his second goal of the contest against the Calgary Flames midway through the third period.

It's only one game, but McDavid - who opened the scoring in the first period Wednesday - shouldn't have much trouble surpassing last season's 30-goal total.
