The Montreal Canadiens were back on the ice last night after a week off due to a small COVID outbreak.
With the week off they welcomed the Edmonton Oilers to the Bell Centre for a tough division matchup with playoff race implications.
The Canadiens came out on fire and ended up beating the Oilers 4-0 which included a goal 18 seconds into the first period.
Thanks to the beating some frustrations boiled over and some of that involved star player Connor McDavid.
McDavid met Canadiens' forward Jesperi Kotkaniemi at center ice and went up high with an elbow.
Some fans and analysts have called for McDavid to be suspended while others believe that he was just targeting the shoulder.
