Mary C Posted June 6, 2022 Share Posted June 6, 2022 POTENTIAL STARTING LINEUPS: EDMONTON OILERS: C | Connor McDavid LW | Evander Kane RW | Zack Kassian LD | Darnell Nurse RD | Cody Ceci G | Mike Smith COLORADO AVALANCHE: C | Nathan MacKinnon LW | Gabriel Landeskog RW | Valeri Nichushkin LD | Devon Toews RD | Cale Makar G | Pavel Francouz Once again hoping to dominate the ice rink and prove themselves a sixth Stanley Cup, Colorado’s team, the Avalanche, are on their way to their fourth game against the Edmonton Oilers this Tuesday. On June 7, 8 AM (PST) at Rogers Place, Edmonton, Canada. Throughout the Western Conference, the Colorado Avalanche have proven themselves a force not to be reckoned with, dominating their opponents and winning their last three games against the Edmonton Oilers. Within these past three games against Avalanche, the Edmonton Oilers have been unable to keep up with the defensive and offensive plays by Avalanche and lost to a two-point lead in game three after a disappointing 4-0 score in game two. Despite the efforts of Oilers goalie, Mike Smith, and his talented ability to fend off the pucks of Colorado’s team, their offense was not able to keep up the early lead they had from the first goal scored by McDavid. Moreso, there seems to be a big crack within the defensive team of the Oil as they have allowed 3.5 goals per game and allowed 13.46 high-risk chances per competition. The only thing that the Avs have to keep in check from the Oilers are the dominant offensive duos of McDavid and Draisaitl. In terms of injuries from the Avs, they’ve got Darcy Kuemper and Andrei Burakovsky doubtful to play. And Samuel Girard and Ryan Murray are out/unable to play. For the Oilers, they’ve got Keeler Yamamoto and Kyle Torres sitting out for the match. Will the upcoming game this Tuesday present itself to be a barnburner for Avalanche and the Oilers, with McDavid and Draisaitl dominating the rink and putting pressure on Av’s defense? Or will the Oilers succumb to the pressure of the superstar team once again, handing out the Stanley Cup right into the Av's hands? From how it's looking right now, we predict that the Colorado Avalanche is the much better team as they have been consistently dominating the rink this past season and will surely be able to hold their own in Game 4. 8 AM (PST), June 7, 2022, Rogers Place, Edmonton, Canada.
