Down in sunny South Florida, long after most of the snowbirds had turned in for the night, you better believe that Eddie Johnston was up late watching Wednesday night.
"Every minute of it!" E.J. reported, just a few minutes after Matt Murray had stopped Connor McDavid on a penalty shot, the defining moment of Wednesday night's nationally televised game, a rarity in the U.S. for any Canadian-based team.
Of course, it wasn't the Edmonton Oilers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins that was the draw. It was McDavid vs. Sidney Crosby. Best vs. Best.
