Edmonton Oilers vs Vancouver Canucks

The Edmonton Oilers are coming into this match after a great 3-2 win over the Canucks, with Evan Bouchard and Leon Draisaitl both scoring a goal and an assist. Now, they will once again play at the Canucks’ stadium before heading back to their hometown, and I’m sure they will do everything they can to come back home leading the series. Regarding their stats, Edmonton enters this game ranked 2nd in the league for goals per game, averaging 4 goals per contest in the postseason. The Oilers are 10th in goals against, allowing an average of 3 goals per game.
On the other hand, the Vancouver Canucks started the playoffs very well; however, they are now feeling the pressure of the Oilers’ offense, which is something they should have anticipated a long time ago. One thing is certain: the Vancouver Canucks are having a very good season and have been much better than they were last season. It’s also worth mentioning that they have reached the finals at least three times but lost each one, so this team doesn’t have much experience at this stage.
