TBS will host Sunday’s matchup between the Edmonton Oilers and Los Angeles Kings in the first round of the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The puck is set to drop at 9 p.m. ET at crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
This series could look a lot of different ways if the Oilers could hold onto a lead or win in overtime. Two of three games have gone to overtime and the Kings have come out on top in each contest to lead 2-1 in the series. In Game 3, the Oilers held a 2-1 lead in the second before allowing Adrian Kempe to score on the power play. Trevor Moore would score the game-winner on the power play in overtime.
So the Oilers, who enter the postseason on a nine-game winning streak, have their backs up against the wall. A loss means returning to Edmonton going up against elimination. The Oilers were a trendy Stanley Cup pick and many believed Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl had plenty around them to make a run. A worse iteration of this team made it to the West Finals last season. Now, it needs a win in Game 4 to even the series.
