EDMONTON, AB -- Here is a quick Rapid Reaction to Game 3 between the Oilers and Ducks.

THE SCOOP: The Oilers overthrew a three-goal deficit to tie the game in the second period but couldn't build off it, dropping the game 6-3 as the Ducks cut the series to 2-1.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Connor McDavid grabbed the puck in the offensive zone while playing 4-on-4. He button-hooked on Sami Vatanen, creating enough space for him to walk in from the left circle and fire a laser that beat John Gibson top corner. The goal completed the Oilers comeback.

FIRST STAR: Jakob Silfverberg. The Ducks forward had two goals and an assist to help lead his team to victory.

TRENDING UP: Kris Russell. The defenceman registered two assists to help spark the Oilers comeback.
