Ducks vs. Oilers live stream, Game 7

Of course, the Anaheim Ducks have been the center of attention of all things drama. There's an article from a few days ago at thehockeywriters.com titled "Blown Calls Ruining Oilers Playoff Chances, NHL Credibility" (Jim Parsons/May 6th).

Draisaitl continued to beat the Ducks like a rented mule this season, with his first career hat trick and two helpers, as his dad was visiting from Europe, and now has 13 points in the six series games. With the series tied 3-3, the victor of May 10's game moves on to face the Nashville Predators in the Western Conference final, so both teams will be in full battle mode.

Who will emerge from these winner-take-all matchups to join the Senators and Nashville Predators in the final four of the Stanley Cup playoffs? Additionally, Anaheim has gotten some favor or momentum going their way in the 2017 NHL Playoffs. Yes the game ended the way it started horrendous.

With the teams that score first in Game 7s posting an all-time record of 125-42, it looked like it be a fatal wound. Actually, on paper it looks like it was a close game.

Anaheim only earned three power players and were unable to make anything happen.

The Oilers pulled Talbot with 2:06 remaining and spent almost all of the next minute in the offensive zone. For example, they had 46 hits to their opponents 42 hits.

The true MVP of the National Hockey League is Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin, who simply does more than the Caps' T.J. Oshie, who was also obtained from the Blues last season, or Nicklas Backstrom.

But as NBC's Chris Cuthbert said at the final horn, "We have not seen the last of these Edmonton Oilers". "Sometimes it's just a team that you like playing against".

If anything the defense was to be mostly at fault for this loss. He has given up 18 goals in this series alone and a save percentage of just.885.

NOTES: With Oilers D Andrej Sekera (undisclosed injury) out for the series, Eric Gryba was active for the second straight game. I know we still have at least one more series to go, but I love what I do on this site and I couldn't be more thankful for all the support and passion from all of you.

Jakarta's Christian governor found guilty of blasphemy
Photos quickly appeared online of Ahok, who still commands enormous popularity in Jakarta being warmly greeted by prison staff. Many see his trial as a test case for religious freedom laws in Indonesia , the world's largest Muslim-majority country.

Mistakes by Ovechkin and defensemen Matt Niskanen and Kevin Shattenkirk in clearing the puck out of the defensive zone led to Rust's goal 8:49 into the second and Hornqvist's 4:14 into the third.

There were plenty of fights in this game, which may have even increased the views for this series alone.

If the Oilers want to win Game 7, they will have to do the same thing and come out with monumental energy from the get-go.

However, what if the Ducks loss is for the better?

"Places like Calgary and Edmonton, all the other markets get a lot of credit for their fans, but tonight ours was as loud and maybe even better". It does make sense to some degree though.

Clearly there's a reason they call this franchise the Ducks.

After losing game six of the 2017 NHL Playoffs in a disappointment, all the Ducks can do is move on and learn from the past. "For an inexperienced team from Day 1, that's a good sign moving forward". "From the first guy to Gibby, that was one of our best games of the season in terms of how we competed". But now, like the Preds, they are a real contender to win the Stanely Cup. Additionally, the Ducks could have allowed the Oilers to use all their energy and perhaps expose themselves. "And I think we're going to need more games like that if we're going to keep going". Therefore the Ducks may be doing something right.

"I wasn't very good", Gibson said.

Hopefully the streets of Edmonton will run yellow with celebratory urine on Wednesday night, rather than mournful urine.
