The second round of the playoffs is over and we're into the conference finals; the Western conference will be a high-stakes πŸ₯© battle of elite scoring talent, as Connor McDavid πŸ₯‡ turned from the best player in the world into one of the best players of all time with his Edmonton Oilers kicking out πŸ¦΅β›Έ the Calgary Flames.
