The Edmonton Oilers Are A Loss Away From Elimination

from the CP at Sportsnet,

The Chicago Blackhawks dressed in the Edmonton Oilers dressing room then proceeded to eat their lunch, pushing the Oilers to the edge of the abyss in the NHL playoffs with a stunning 4-3 comeback win Wednesday night.

With a victory Friday the Hawks, the bottom-seeded Western Conference team, can knock out the fifth-seeded Oilers and send home the NHL’s two top scorers, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.

The Blackhawks lead the best-of-five qualifying series 2-1, but late in the game Wednesday it looked like they would be the ones facing elimination.

The Hawks were down 3-2 in the penalty-filled affair at Rogers Place, when they blitzed the Oilers for two goals with less than six minutes left in the game.
