To follow up his challenge, Kane returned to the social media platform on Sunday night and retweeted his message. He also let it be known he’s “waiting for that answer,” and tagged Paul in the post.
Of course, Draisaitl wasn’t a slouch, either. The reigning Hart and Art Ross Trophy winner collected four assists as the Oilers avenged their season-opening loss to the Canucks. Considering all of the action on the second night of the 2020-21 NHL season, it feels fair to bottle up McDavid and Draisaitl as 1A/1B and include some other highlights from the night. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins deserves a mention, too, with a three-point game. RNH could really drive up his earning potential if he sticks with at least one of McDavid or Draisaitl for most of this 56-game season.
