Draisaitl helps Oilers rout Ducks 7-1 to force Game 7

Getzlaf is driving Ducks toward pivotal Game 5 with Oilers Ovechkin on move for Caps' elimination game vs. Penguins?
Damon Campbell | 15 May, 2017, 17:58

Edmonton appeared to be ready to run away with Game 5 in the second period.

To say that it doesn't matter what happens in that game would be a little misleading.

"I know that - 100 per cent certain". "I have to come up with a couple of saves and maybe it's different, maybe it's not". During the melee, Darnell Nurse knocked Kesler into the crease, but once he got there it looked like Kesler held Talbot's pad, preventing him from making a save. In the world of the National Hockey League this results in a very clear - open and shut case - of "Your own damn fault" for the official.

2015: Three-two series lead against the Blackhawks, lost Game 7 at home.

The Oilers, however, were once again on the receiving end of a questionable call by the officials.

Caggiula put the Oilers up 3-0 with a score off a 4-on-1 rush midway through the period. Friedman directed the eyes of the panel to Kesler's hand.

Kesler obviously makes contact with Talbot, but it's hard to tell if he actually lingered to grab his leg pad.

Rogers Place was sensitive to officiating Sunday given the perceived injustice of allowing Friday's tying goal to withstand a goaltender interference challenge. And yet here we are.

While the Oilers can't be any more excited about the opportunity they've played themselves into, the Ducks are left to put on a fearless face for a game they never wanted. "I just kind of let them down". I'm not there. Not yet. It's this latter opinion that isn't really being reported on in the mainstream media: there is definitely a growing contingent of hockey fans that are losing consumer confidence in the NHL.

Before Game 5, the series was tied 2-2.

2013: Ducks blow a 3-2 series lead and lose Game 7 at home to Detroit. The club has to channel all of that frustrated energy into more positive play. Kelfbom is expected to available for game seven Wednesday in Anaheim.

Will the Oilers be able to ride the wave of victory into Anaheim for game 7, after their first truly dominant performance of the series, or will the Ducks rebound and finally exorcise their game 7 demons? So far the Oilers have been pushed around by the Ducks in terms of possession.

Notes: McLellan did not have an update on the availability of defenceman Andrej Sekera for Game 6 on Sunday. "We're not afraid to go into our building and play a Game 7".

The story stopped being gamesmanship and gutsiness on behalf of the Oilers once the collapse was completed.

"I think we should", said Cogliano. When they play well, there is offense to be found. Success is still possible.

The Ducks now have won two straight overtime games, tapping their experience. Whatever this team has left to give has to be left on the ice. It was most of the period - you could see from the 10-minute mark of the period on, the momentum changing. The Oilers have other options, but this is most in line with their previous choices. Sekera played just 1:54 before leaving with an apparent leg injury following a hit from Getzlaf. But each game in this series has been its own freaky entity.

Though the Oilers are in the postseason since 2006, they're in a familiar situation. "We know they are going to do the same".

The Ducks scored all three goals with the goalie pulled for an extra attacker. It's great for creating a playoff vibe right outside the Honda Center, and it's even better for local business. This may be the final game of the year. On the season, he has 21 points (11 goals) in 11 games, and after his 25-footer ripped by Bernier in the middle period, it looked like Teddy Bears Toss nighth at an Edmonton Oil Kings game. "We've got two more games". It's time for Lucic to make an impact 5v5. We'll find out Wednesday.

"We wanted to get back on the plane to California and it showed from the drop of the puck", said Milan Lucic.
