  • Vancouver killed just 5-of-10 power plays the first four games of a series, but are 8-for-8 in the last two.
  • The Canucks have scored 25 goals in five home games (4-1) versus the Oilers this season..
  • Edmonton’s Evan Bouchard leads all defensemen in the playoffs with 18 points, including at least one in nine of 11 games.
  • Vancouver forward Brock Boeser has nine goals in 11 games against the Oilers this season, but none in the last three.

Oilers Can Count On Draisaitl

Draisaitl helped his backers cash plenty of prop bets this postseason.

The German forward has posted multiple points in nine of 11 games during the playoffs and leads all players with 23 – two more than teammate Connor McDavid.

Draisaitl has three goals and 10 assists in the series and boasts 100 points in 60 career playoff games. The 28-year-old had an assist in his last Game 7 against Los Angeles in 2022.

Draisaitl has registered at least 41 goals and 105 points in five straight full seasons and posted 31 in 56 contests during the abbreviated 20-21 campaign. He has 52 points in 45 regular-season contests versus Vancouver.

Canucks Ready For Decider

Vancouver has been the underdog throughout the series, but found ways to get the job done.

The Canucks are 30-11-6 at home overall, but just 3-3 during the playoffs. They must throttle Edmonton’s speed and create more opportunities. Vancouver totaled 55 shots in its three losses during the series and 77 in the wins.

“Obviously, we’ve won games with not many shots, but it is what it is,” Canucks forward Elias Pettersson told reporters. “They won today. It’s a seven-game series for a reason. I’m excited for it. I know the barn is going to be loud, the fans are going to be into it, and those are the types of games you want to play.”

Tocchet said injured No. 1 goalie Thatcher Demko is not available yet, so Arturs Silovs is expected to get the start. Silovs is 5-4 with an .898 save percentage in the playoffs.

Skinner Back In For Oilers

Edmonton’s No. 1 goalie Stuart Skinner was benched after Game 3 in favor of Calvin Pickard, but returned to make 14 saves in the victory on Saturday.

While Skinner (.881 SP playoffs) didn’t have a ton of work, he made a few key saves including one with the blocker on Vancouver defenseman Quinn Hughes.

This could be a career defining game for Skinner. It’s a tough call, but the game looks like it could be good for over bettors (O/U 6) despite the last three games.

Game 7 Betting Odds Favors Home Team

Of the last 13 Game 7s in NHL playoff history, the home team has come out on top nine times.

Dallas beat Vegas and Boston topped Toronto at home to win their opening-round series this season. Home teams did split four Game 7s last season if you bet online.

Edmonton’s last Game 7 was in 2022 against Los Angeles when it won 2-0 at home, advancing to the second round. Vancouver lost 3-0 to Vegas in a second-round Game 7 in 2020.
