The eyes of the NHL world were on Pittsburgh Tuesday night as superstars Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid met for the first time their careers. McDavid totaled three assists on night but it was another Conor who stole the show. Conor Sheary scored twice, including the game winner as the Penguins came back from a 3-1 deficit to defeat the Edmonton Oilers 4-3 and extend their points streak to eight games. Carl Hagelin and Evgeni Malkin also scored. Matt Murray once again got the start and notched his third win in three tries this season. [Pensburgh]

All the talk surrounding the game was Crosby vs. McDavid and rightfully so. The consensus greatest player in the world against the odds on favorite to be the heir to that throne. McDavid got the better of Crosby on the stat sheet with three assists but Crosby still sits a top of the hockey world. [Sportsnet]
