The Oilers forced a Game 7 with an emphatic 7-1 victory in Game 6 on Sunday night. It marked the second straight time the home team won in the series, but the road team is still 4-2. The Oilers are 54-28-12 overall and 26-15-6 on the road. Anaheim is 53-26-13 overall and 32-10-4 at home.

Edmonton wasted little time in Game 6, jumping out to a 5-0 lead in the first period. Leon Draisaitl scored twice in the first seven minutes of play while Zack Kassian scored a minute later. Mark Letestu then added two goals in the final 10 minutes of the period. Draisaitl would get his hat-trick goal in the second period to make it 7-1. John Gibson was pulled after giving up three goals on six shots. Jonathan Bernier didn’t fare much better, allowing four goals on 29 shots.

Bet on Oilers vs. Ducks

The Ducks are at home, which is typically where you go in a Game-7 pick. However, Gibson is not a goalie I feel great about. His GAA in the playoffs is 3.00 and his save percentage is just .903. He has given up 18 goals in this series alone and a save percentage of just .885. The Ducks are also just 2-6 in Game 7s in their history while the Oilers are 6-3. I feel better about Cam Talbot than I do about Gibson, so I am going to take my chances on the Oilers.
