Edmonton has an incredibly tough series against Los Angeles. A year earlier, the rivals had already faced each other in the Western quarterfinals. The Oilers regularly had to catch up with the Californians. Each time they managed to do so, they won the decisive seventh battle 2-0. The Blues and Oranges probably thought they'd go over last year's notes now, as they had already suffered a 3-4 defeat in the first game. After that, they got back to square one, 4-2. Then they lost again, 2-3. The day before, they won again - 5-4. Now the score in the series is tied, 2-2, with the Canadians again having a field advantage.
All the last years, Los Angeles made significant progress, turning from the hopeless outsider of the NHL into an average solid performer. Now the Kings have cup ambitions, but in the playoffs, they risk losing again to Edmonton as they did the year before. That said, the Blacks and Whites have nothing to complain about. They fight in every meeting. The day before, they had every chance to lead the game - 3-1 when they beat the Oilers 3-0 after the first period. Nevertheless, they could not hold it, as the Canadians have two of the strongest players in the league, while the Californians do not.

Again Edmonton begins the playoffs with a game against Los Angeles. Each time the Oilers have to spend a lot of energy and emotions to catch up with the Californians. It's time for the stellar Canadians to seize the initiative. In the fifth game, Edmonton will act on courage, as the day before, they won in overtime - 5:4. Connor McDavid and Leon Dreisaitl finally showed their full potential, which makes life extremely difficult for the Kings.
The rivalry between Edmonton and Los Angeles is very productive. In the four previous games, the opponents have scored 27 goals (6.75 goals on average). We expect an open and spectacular battle. The Oilers finally gained confidence, turning the course of the game, while in the defense, they are still very mediocre.
