Connor McDavid returned to action Wednesday night against the St. Louis Blues after a one-game absence.

The Edmonton Oilers superstar potted the shootout winner to beat the Blues after sitting out Monday's loss to the Dallas Stars because he was under the weather.

It was the first contest he missed since his rookie season in 2015-16, ending a streak of 222 regular-season games played.
