Florida Panthers vs Edmonton Oilers Prediction

While the Oilers game 4 win was so one-sided, it could convince you they found something and could make this a series. However, let’s not overlook the fact the Panthers won 5 of the previous games against the Oilers, outscoring them 21-8 during that span. Until proven otherwise, the Panthers are the better team from top to bottom, and they’re at their best at home, where they’re 8-3 in these playoffs and 34-15-3 on the year. The Oilers are only 27-23-2 on the road this season.

We’ve seen a longer stretch of the Panthers’ dominance in this series than the Oilers getting free offensively. I need to see more from the Oilers to believe they can repeat what they did in game 4. I’ll lay the cheap price with the Panthers as they win their first Stanley Cup.
