The Los Angeles Kings remained resilient in their last two games and tied the series following a 4-0 victory over Edmonton. During the season, the team found the back of the net 239 times and a 20th-best offensive rank in the NHL. The team stays productive on the defensive end and is the eighth-ranked team in the league, allowing opponents to average 2.83 goals per game. Going over the Kings’ opponent-adjusted scoring margin, the team faces the Oilers as the 17th-ranked team in the league.

The Oilers average 4.25 goals per game in the playoffs on 35.7% of their power-play chances.

Meanwhile, Cal Petersen allowed four goals on 20 shots.

The hosts look to recover from a questionable Game 4 performance in which they were silenced by the Kings. In 82 games, the Oilers recorded 290 goals and an average of 3.48 goals per game. This ranks the team seventh in the league. Edmonton starts to slow up on the defensive end with 3.06 opponent goals per contest. The regular season brought the Oilers the 17th toughest schedule. Factoring that into the team’s scoring margin, the side comes in with a power ranking of 11th in the NHL. These numbers are enough to keep the Los Angeles Kings on their toes.
