The NHL resumed its season inside its own bubble system, with Stanley Cup qualifiers beginning on August 1st.

The Edmonton Oilers played their second qualifying game against the Chicago Blackhawks. After losing Game 1, the Oilers faced elimination in the best-of-five series.

Oilers star Connor McDavid led his team to a 6-3 victory, securing a hat trick late in the second period.

In normal circumstances, a hat trick would've resulted in a frenzied crowd and hats littering the ice. But with no fans in the stands, employees helped liven the mood by throwing their own hats for McDavid's first postseason hat trick.

McDavid and the Oilers finished the regular season 5th in the Western Conference and will continue facing off against the Blackhawks in hopes to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs.
