The Chicago Blackhawks ended their season with a 6-2 win over the San Jose Sharks and their season record at 32-30. In their last encounter with the Edmonton Oilers, they won by just one pint, 4-3.  Patrick Kane started the scoring for the Blackhawks in the first period and it was followed up Jonathan Toews in the second. Alex DeBrincat scored the next two goals for the team and they held on to the victory. Kane has been leading the team in scoring all season and he is expected again to start the Blackhawks charge.

Edmonton Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers has been rolling and they were fifth in the NHL Western Conference with a record of 37-25. Before the lockdown happened they were on a slump and lost three of their last four. Their last matchup against the Blackhawks didn’t favor them as they got lost in the first and second periods before waking up in the final period. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins along with Josh Archibald and Kailer Yamamoto was the three scorers during that match. They will be needing a good game from Connor McDavid and leading-scorer Leon Draisaitl for them to seal out this series against the Blackhawks.
