For what it’s worth, I’ve been told Leon Draisaitl skated on his own at the Downtown Community Arena today prior to the Oilers morning skate..
“He’s the best player in the world. He showed that in the last two games.” — Leon Draisaitl on Connor McDavid.
“Our best players were our best players in this series.” — Mike Smith on Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.
“He’s the best player in the world and I think he showed that in the last two games. It’s the will, you can see it in his eyes. There was no way that he or we were going to be denied.” - Leon Draisaitl on Connor McDavid.
Post game media: Leon, how are you feeling? Leon: I’m fine. (With the cutest grin on his face) I love Draisaitl #LetsGoOilers.
Leon Draisaitl skating on one leg was better than any player on the Los Angeles Kings.
Leon Draisaitl basically risking losing his right foot, just so he can step up tonight, can’t be lost here. That’s German engineering at its finest.
Connor est le meilleure joueur au monde et il l’a prouvé lors des deux derniers matchs. Ce n’est pas que du talent… c’est de la volonté, de la détermination et bien plus encore… - Leon Draisaitl #Oilers.
