Game Four Preview and Predictions

Colorado Avalanche versus Edmonton Oilers

(COL Leads 3-0)

NHL Stanley Cup favourites, Colorado Avalanche will be looking to stamp their place in the Stanley Cup finals after taking a commanding three to zero series lead against the Oilers. After taking two in a row at home, the Avalanche won an important game three on the road, which completely sucked the life out of the Oilers.

The Avalanche are one of the hottest teams in the NHL. They provide opponents with constant pressure in the worst way, resulting in goals and power plays. They will be confident of winning a decisive game four this week.

Edmonton is looking to pull off the impossible against the Colorado Avalanche in the WCF. Connor McDavid and company have played a fantastic season up to this point, but they look to have come up just short in the grand scheme of things. Taking this game as a single playoff will help the team realise their contributions this season, but also fire them up to potentially extend the series further. There isn’t much to be hopeful about in Edmonton, but if there’s any player who can turn a series on its head, it’s Connor McDavid.

Prediction: Colorado Avalanche to win Game Four and advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

New York Rangers versus Tampa Bay Lightning

(NYR Leads 2-1)

New York came close to leading this series 3-0, and that has to be playing on repeat in their minds this week. The Rangers are playing some of the best hockey the franchise has ever seen, and they are in a great position against the Lightning. Their power play efficiency and goal-keeping ability has been excellent, and has stopped some of the best chances from the Lightning.

The Lightning have a jolt of confidence after creating a winning game from a two goal deficit in game three. The reigning and defending champions of the NHL, their experience is unmatched compared to most teams, and will prove to be the factor here.

Prediction: Tampa Bay to win game four.
