If the Oilers close out the series Wednesday night with a win, National Hockey League fans would be in store with one of the best possible series' of late. "If we told you [in September] that we were taking it to seven in the second series".

Corey Perry, the high scoring winger who has been demoted to the third line most of the postseason, will be reunited with longtime center Ryan Getzlaf in the hopes of breaking their Game 7 slide.

Game 7 may be the most exciting phrase in sports to a lot of people. Carlyle said he'd be tough but flexible and let youth have its say, appealing to a team whose scouting and development departments have uncovered and polished so many gems despite usually picking late in drafts.

The location of the game in Anaheim is such that the situation won't get out of control if the refs resume nudging the Ducks toward the conference finals.

The Edmonton Oilers and Anaheim Ducks approach Game 7 of their second-round playoff series from different perspectives. However, I still think someone should point certain things out when a team is getting screwed.

There were plenty of fights in this game, which may have even increased the views for this series alone. Both times I've played them, it's been a six-game series and a seven-game series.

The Anaheim Ducks are no strangers to competing in Game 7s, it's just the results haven't been too friendly.

Ducks' reward for Game 7 win is date with Rinne and Preds
While all other teams have posted a below.500 record at home during the playoffs, the Preds are a flawless 5-0 through two rounds. Ritchie scored the game victor at 3:21 of the third when he rifled a high shot past Oiler goalkeeper Cam Talbot from the slot.

Although Anaheim lost, they were still able to attempt many shots on goal. "Anyone that we track down doing that, if they've got any other Oilers tickets those will be cancelled at OEG's discretion - including season seats for future years", he said. The play of Marc-Andre Fleury in these playoffs, and Game 7 versus Washington in particular, has been a big reason for Pittsburgh's success through two rounds. It's one last game.

"Obviously, it's a new year, new teams, (but) for some of us, it means a little bit more", Anaheim centre Ryan Kesler said.

"To do it in a couple of minutes was right up there with the biggest of concerts, for sure", said Stew MacDonald, executive vice-president of revenue with the Oilers Entertainment Group. Eaves, a pending unrestricted free agent, was playing well until he hurt his foot in Game 3 against Edmonton. "Everybody is saying, 'Oh, here we go again.' They didn't miss a beat". With a 12-2-0 run to close out the regular season and an admirable postseason showing against two Western Conference teams loaded with playoff experience, the Oilers earned leaguewide respect.

The Ducks have excelled with youth on the blue line.

"Honestly, in a game like this everyone knows what's at stake, everyone knows what has to be done". "You're just anxious to get it going, that's the main thing".

The NHL's operations department tracks all games and issues citations when it determines that a player warrants a sanction.

Cam Talbot (7-5, .924 SV% / 2.51 GAA / 2 SO) will get the start tonight for Edmonton, while John Gibson (6-3, .903 SV% / 2.99 GAA) will go for the Ducks.
