This one is going to be fun. I really don't have a sense as to how this is going to go after the round 1 series, but I do expect the Flames to be better than they were. Dallas (Oettinger) did a really good job defensively on them and as we are aware, Edmonton isn't quite as good in that department. I will go with Flames in 6, but I would love to see what this Oilers team can do if they move on.

I'm sure the Oilers goalies will be fine if Calgary peppers 60+ shots at them.

Flames in 5. The Oilers aren't going to be able handle them defensively. This is not going to be a a classic Battle of Alberta by any means.

L K:
McDavid is going to go off but the Flames aren’t playing Ottinger anymore.   Flames in 6
