Chicago stuns Edmonton in first game of the series
If you had the Blackhawks out scoring the Oilers 4-1 in the first period than good for you. An absolutely shocking game from the Oilers and Blackhawks. The game ended at 6-4 for the Blackhawks. The Hawks played the better game. It was obvious. The Oilers goaltending was atrocious. Mike Smith got pulled after 5 goals. He was an embarrassment for the Oilers.

I’m terrified that the Oilers could lose this series and end up with the first pick in the NHL draft. Oilers still take the series. Not that confident on the pick but I really, really, really don’t want to see Edmonton with the first overall pick.
Chicago has to win two more to move on. Please don’t hand Edmonton a chance at the first overall pick Chicago. Good for you for playing so well but Edmonton can’t have three first overall picks on the team. McDavid, Draisaitl, and Lafeniere is not fair. It can’t happen. Please don’t win this series Chicago.
