Edmonton has picked up the pace. They won their last nine games, 39:14 overall. The Oilers finished the regular season in second place in the Pacific Division standings thanks to this winning streak. It should be noted that three Edmonton hockey players are among the top ten scorers. McDavid is in first place with 153 points, Dreisaitl is second with 128, and Nugent-Hopkins is ninth with 104. With guys like these, the Oilers have an excellent chance of success in this Stanley Cup race.
Los Angeles Kings
Los Angeles didn't finish the regular season at its best. The Kings had a chance to fight for second place in the division but decided that third place would be enough. The Kings lost three to Edmonton (1:3), Vegas (2:5), and Colorado in their last five games. Immediately after that, Los Angeles beat Vancouver and Anaheim (3:0 and 5:3). As for the performers' situation is not as rosy as for the upcoming opponents. LA's best player has 74 points, 45th on the all-time scorers' list.
Expert Betting Tips
In the past regular season, even Boston couldn't beat Edmonton in scoring (305 vs. 325). The offense with McDavid, Dreisaitl, and Nugent-Hopkins is simply unstoppable. We doubt the Kings will be able to offer any resistance on the road. Not so long ago, the opponents met at the arena in Los Angeles, where the Oilers were stronger (3:1). In our opinion, the Oilers will have no problem in the first game of the series.
