The Oilers were finally able to snap their decade long postseason drought in 2017, and the Oilers were able to follow that up by advancing to the Second Round, where they currently face elimination. Edmonton delivered a 47-26-9 regular season record that paved the way for a 2nd place finish in the Pacific Division and a 4th place finish in the Western Conference. The Oilers are happy to be in the playoffs, but they have an insatiable hunger that won’t be satisfied with a second round dismissal.
The Oilers kicked this year’s postseason off by facing San Jose Sharks in the opening round of the playoffs. The Sharks weren’t the best regular season team, but San Jose still made a name for themselves. With two contests going to overtime in that series, Edmonton had to give it their all to get to the second round. In the end, the Sharks were eliminated 4-2.
The Ducks have been playoff contenders for the last 5 years running and this year they punched their ticket to the postseason by posting a 46-23-13 record that gave way to a 1st place finish in the Pacific Division and a 3rd place finish in the Western Conference. The Ducks failed to make it to the second round last year, and this postseason the franchise is focused on keeping their Stanley Cup dreams alive as long as possible.
The Ducks faced the Flames in the first round of the playoffs and ended up sweeping Calgary in just 4 games.
