GAME SEVEN

It’s been an interesting series so far. Edmonton burst out in Anaheim to take the first two games of this series. The Ducks would roar back and win the next three. Edmonton hung seven goals on Anaheim in game six. It’s all tied up right now, and there’s only one more game left in the series.

A win for the Oilers will set up a meeting between Nashville and Edmonton in the Conference Finals. A loss will send the Oilers home for the remainder of the playoffs.

What To Watch For From The Oilers

Getting Oscar Klefbom back is a huge coup for the Oilers. Klefbom was out for game six with an injury, and he’s “100%” for tonight. Klefbom will likely replace Griffin Reinhart, who played in his first NHL game since 2016 in Sunday’s 7-1 goal explosion over the Ducks.

Also, Connor McDavid.

What To Watch For From The Ducks

From Anaheim Calling

You know the history, and we are all struggling to have faith. If you have any superstitions that actually work, it is your duty to do them. If that’s not watching the game, you don’t watch the game. If you’re in the Pond, make the place crazy loud and will the boys to a win.

I’m not sure how many Duck fans will be at the Honda Center tonight, but I can assure you that roughly 30% of the city of Edmonton is there.

Final Thought

When backed up against the wall on Sunday night, the Oilers responded in a big way. Leon Draisaitl had five points, Mark Letestu had four, and Anton Slepyshev found the scoresheet. John Gibson was chased from the net with eight minutes gone in the first period. Well here we are. Pismo Beach, and all the clams we can eat.

We’d all love to see a repeat performance, but we’ll settle for just one more goal than Anaheim tonight.

Go. You. Oilers.
