Prediction and Conclusion

The Edmonton Oilers finished fifth in the Western Conference, which does not look like a promising start for the playoffs. Still, they are as good a team as anyone in the league, with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl being two of the best tandems in the league. The Oilers won 16 consecutive games at one point in the season, and no team will have an easy job against them in the playoffs. The Kings barely made it with a solid run late in the season. The Kings have among the best defenses in the league, but slowing down the Oilers will be a difficult task. The opening game of the series may set the tone for the entire series, so the Oilers will take advantage of the home ice and take the lead in the series.
