It's safe to say Connor McDavid is on the minds of the Calgary Flames three games into the Battle of Alberta.

The Edmonton Oilers superstar went off for three more points in Sunday's 4-1 Game 3 victory to bring his total to nine in the series. The Flames, now trailing 2-1 in the Round 2 matchup, are aware their season depends on finding a way to slow down the world's best player.

"We've let one guy beat us a few nights now," Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk said, per Sportsnet's Eric Francis. "Back to the drawing board and figure out a way to stop him next game."
