Kris Russell fires home game winning goal… on his OWN NET!
Sorry Kris, this is going to be on the blooper reel for years:
Russell turned out to be a last minute distraction in a game that had all eyes on the Matthews–McDavid match-up. Experts have been heavily drawing comparisons to these back-to-back first overall draft picks as of late. Despite having different style of play, both players are among the best of the best in the NHL.
Matthews finished with 1 goal and 1 assist.
McDavid finished with 1 goal.
