The Oilers lost the first game of the series against Vegas 4:6. In the second game, the team performed much better on defense and didn't slow down on the offensive end. The result was a convincing 5:1 win. Connor McDavid and Draisaitl scored twice each, and Evan Bouchard scored once more. Thus, Edmonton achieved their series opener by taking home ice advantage from the Golden Knights.
Vegas Golden Knights
The goaltending position is the main problem for the Golden Knights in this playoffs. Still, both Laurent Brossoit and Adin Hill are inexperienced in big games and could be unreliable in critical moments. That's precisely what happened in Game 2 of the series with Edmonton, as Brossoit missed four pucks in the first period and was replaced by Hill after the second. Having given their opponents a 4-goal handicap, it was tough for Vegas to get back into the game.
Expert Betting Tips
Despite the goaltending mess, Vegas looks like a more balanced team than Edmonton. The Golden Knights, unlike their rival, can add to their defense at the right time, making the goaltending problem less noticeable. That could be the case in the upcoming game, with Bruce Cassidy creating unsurmountable problems for the Oilers' super-attack. We're betting that Vegas will regain home-court advantage at the end of the third game of the series.
