ESPN will host Saturday’s matchup between the Los Angeles Kings and Edmonton Oilers in Game 7 of the first round of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs with puck drop set at 10:10 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta.
Los Angeles had a chance to pull off the biggest upset in the Stanley Cup Playoffs thus far with Game 6 on home ice, but Edmonton superstar Connor McDavid had other ideas. On the day that he was nominated as a finalist for the Hart Trophy, McDavid had a four-point night (two goals, two assists) in the Oilers’ 4-2 road win Thursday. McDavid scored the first two goals of the game to give Edmonton a 2-0 lead, but the Kings fought hard like they have all series and got a power-play goal from Sean Durzi and a game-tying goal from Carl Grundstrom. The third period was a back-and-forth affair until Tyson Barrie tilted the ice.
Evander Kane added an empty net goal for the Oilers and that was the game. Edmonton is a substantial -205 betting favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook to win Game 7. The Kings are +165.
