If the Kings get Fiala and Vilardi back, I think they can beat the Oilers. Korpisalo will be the key.

Yup, Korpisalo has to go into insane mode which he's capable of from time to time

Oilers in 7. Gonna be a close series, but McDavid gives the Oilers the edge.

Ekholm was the ideal add for the oilers. They're capable of outscoring their problems, even in the playoffs, and now they have less problems to outscore. Oil in 5.

Oilers gonna Oiler, and cough up a late lead, take a silly penalty in overtime after bobbling on a pinch in, and down 1-0 again this year.

Turned it off with less than 10 mins to go. Seemed like it was over ...

I have mixed feelings in this one. I usually support CDN teams. I haven't as much warmth for the Oilers for some reason but if they're the last CDN team, I'll probably pull for them.

I don't think they have the goaltending and team defence required to win it all.

Yup his stick was high but I didn't see it contact the puck. The situation room has better video then what we have so if there isn't enough to turn the call over, oh well. Oilers need to stop taking dumb penalties and they need some production from others not named Leon or McD who has 0 5v5 pts in 3 games.

Yeah. I can definitely see why they came back saying they couldn't conclusively say it hit the stick there. I think it did, but I certainly can't say for sure.

Yeah inconclusive I suppose, but I saw a tweet where it paused at one point and jeez it looked like the puck was toughing the stick.

Agree with the dumb penalties. Both losses in OT were a result of penalties they really didn't need to take. LA not so much winning the series as the Oilers are losing it.
