Mark Scheifele can’t be stopped. 

The Winnipeg Jets center, who has been on a tear throughout the 2018 postseason, continued to light the lamp at historic rates Wednesday night when he scored his 13th and 14th goals of the playoffs in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Vegas Golden Knights

Thanks to his tally 18 seconds into the third period, Scheifele captured sole possession of the NHL‘s road postseason scoring record with 11 goals. 

The Calgary Flames‘ Joe Mullen (1989) and Pittsburgh PenguinsSidney Crosby (2009) owned the previous record at 10 road goals, per Sportsnet Stats

Needless to say, Scheifele’s looking like the clear Conn Smythe Trophy front-runner.
