For the first time since 2006, the Edmonton Oilers will be competing in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Oilers ground out a 2-1 victory over the LA Kings yesterday night and become the first Canadian team and the first Pacific Division team to clinch a playoff berth. As well, both the Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks clinched as a result of this Oilers victory. Connor McDavid scored his 27th of the season, Eric Gryba scored the game winner and Cam Talbot made 34 saves in the victory. With 5 games remaining, the Oilers are currently tied with the San Jose Sharks for 2nd in the Pacific Division (both have 93 points). The Ducks sit in 1st with 95 points and Calgary can clinch tonight with their own victory over the Kings which would give them 92 points. While the Oilers are certainly happy to have made it to the playoffs, they're still working on their game. Now they're going to jockey for home ice advantage by gunning for either 1st or 2nd in the Pacific. The Oilers remaining games are against the Sharks, Ducks, Kings and a B2B against the Canucks.
