Connor McDavid only needs to score 10 more times in Edmonton's nine remaining regular-season games to become the first player to hit the 70-goal mark since 1992-93, but the Oilers superstar has his eyes on the bigger picture.

"Obviously, you need to go on a big run (to reach that landmark), and certainly anything is possible," he told's Mike Zeisberger on Friday.

"Is it something that I'm going to be looking for or pressing for? Probably not," McDavid added. "It's more important how our team is playing heading into the playoffs. That's the most important thing, the thing we work all season for."

Edmonton was swept out of the Western Conference Final by the Colorado Avalanche last season despite a gargantuan effort from McDavid. He put up seven points in that four-game series and ended up leading all skaters with 33 points in 16 playoff games.
