Edmonton Oilers at Florida Panthers Preview & Picks

Florida are tipped to bounce back from a blowout loss to wrap up the series.

Despite the loss the Panthers do have a great record against Edmonton this season, and they have been in good form at home for several weeks.

  • Florida Panthers are 13-3 in their last 16 home games
  • Florida Panthers are 5-1 against Edmonton this season
  • 9 of the last 10 meetings have been settled in regulation time
  • The Under has cashed in 10 of Florida’s last 13 games

Head To Head

  • Florida Panthers won the regular season series 2-0
  • Florida Panthers lead this NHL Stanley Cup Finals series 3-1
  • Edmonton Oilers won 8-1 when the two teams last met on June 15

Edmonton Oilers Form

Edmonton return home looking to answer a heavy Game 4 defeat with a series-clinching victory at home.

The Oilers opened this series with 3-0 and 4-1 road defeats in Florida, before returning home for a 4-3 loss that left them on the brink of elimination.

They fended that off in dominant fashion in Game 4, winning 8-1, but they must follow that up here or their Stanley Cup dream will be over.

Edmonton entered the Stanley Cup Finals having beaten Los Angeles, Vancouver and Dallas in the playoffs.

The Oilers split the first two games of the series with Los Angeles, but responded with 6-1, 1-0 and 4-0 wins to clinch the series 4-1.

Their win streak was ended during a back-and-forth series with Vancouver that saw the two teams split the first six games.

That set up a winner-takes-all Game 7 showdown, and Edmonton took it 5-1 to seal a place in the Western Conference Finals.

The Oilers were paired with Dallas, and they were able to erase a 2-1 deficit with 5-2, 3-1 and 2-1 victories to book their place in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Florida Panthers Form

Florida head back home with the chance to clinch the Stanley Cup Finals series despite an embarrassing loss in Game 4.

The Panthers won the first three games of the series with Edmonton, beating the Oilers 3-0 and 4-1 at home, and 4-3 on the road.

They passed up on the chance to complete a series sweep as they were beaten 8-1 last time out, but they are still just one win away from being crowned world champions. 

Florida earned their spot in the Stanley Cup Finals by eliminating Tampa Bay, Boston and the New York Rangers in the playoffs.

The Panthers won the first three games of their series with Tampa Bay, before bouncing back from a 6-3 loss with a series-clinching 6-1 win over the Lightning.

They then took six games to send Boston packing, responding to a 5-1 defeat with 6-1, 6-2 and 3-2 win, before replaying to a 2-1 loss with a 2-1 victory on the road.

That set up an Eastern Conference Finals series with the New York Rangers, and they fell behind early as they dropped two of the first three games.

Florida came roaring back though, reeling off 3-2 (OT), 3-2 and 2-1 victories to secure their place in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Verdict

Florida were hammered in Game 4, but we are giving them the benefit of the doubt in Game 5.

They do boast a great record against the Oilers this season and they have been in strong form at home, so we are leaning towards the Panthers.
