No hype needed. Saturday night is Game 7 in Edmonton. It’s win or go home for the Oilers and Kings.
We did a full preview — and predictions — on NHL Radio earlier this morning:
This morning’s pregame skate was optional; thus, few clues were available regarding any possible lineup changes for LA. However, we’ll go back to some comments following Game 6…
McLellan — Huge error on the game winning goal. It's preventable. It's avoidable.
— The Mayor | John Hoven (@mayorNHL) May 13, 2022
Oilers coach Jay Woodcroft is also being coy about his lineup, refusing to answer questions about the availability of Leon Draisaitl, who was absent from morning skate — leading Edmonton media to suggest he may miss the game due to knee/ankle issues. It’s the playoffs. Don’t believe anything until it happens.
