The first-round series between the Oilers and the Kings will be decided in Game 7 on Saturday in Edmonton.

The series has not gone as planned by many. The Kings took a 3-2 series lead in Game 5 owing to an OT victory by Adrian Kempe, but the Oilers answered with a 4-2 win in Game 6 thanks to a late goal by Tyson Barrie to tie the series.

Connor McDavid has gone above and beyond to put the Oilers in a position to progress. He’s tied for the playoff lead with Carolina Panthers’ Carter Verhaeghe with 12 points in six games. Mike Smith has been a solid netminder for Edmonton, with a 2.67 goals-against average and.931 save percentage.

The Kings, on the other hand, have been getting contributions from a variety of players. Kempe has the most points with six. Trevor Moore and Phillip Danault each have five.

The Kings are attempting to win their first series since 2014, while the Oilers are attempting to reach the second round for the first time since 2017.
