The road team has won all four games in this series. Edmonton won the first two in Anaheim, and the Ducks answered with two wins at the home of the Oilers. Anaheim is now 52-25-13 overall and 31-10-4 at home while the Oilers come into this game 53-28-11 overall and 26-15-5 on the road.

The Oilers had a prime chance to take complete control of this series in Game 4. They held a 2-0 lead after one period when Connor McDavid and Milan Lucic both score. However, the Ducks countered with three goals in the second period. Ryan Getzlaf scored twice and Rickard Rakell also found the net. The Oilers would force OT with a Drake Caggiula goal in the closing minutes, but Jakob Silfverberg got his seventh playoff goal in the OT to even the series.

Bet on Oilers vs. Ducks

Can you continue to expect the road team to win each game in this series? I don’t personally think so. Wednesday’s win should spark something for the Ducks, as they were able to erase a two-goal deficit, which erased a two-game deficit. John Gibson isn’t a goalie I like to rely on, but he stepped up in the later stages of Game 4. Cam Talbot has been facing a lot of shots and there’s only so much he can do. Look for the Ducks to continue their offensive assault and pick up a home win.
