The Edmonton Oil Kings had a prime opportunity, they could have taken the WHL best of 7 series in 6 games, and won the championship at home. Instead, the Oil Kings let an early 3 goal lead slip away, losing in overtime. Now, the series shifts to game seven in Portland, where the Winterhawks will be ready.
For the third year in a row, the Edmonton Oil Kings have taken the WHL Eastern Conference by storm. Breezing through their first 3 playoff rounds, the Oil Kings have looked stronger than ever. But ultimately, the Oil Kings face their toughest competition, the Portland Winterhawks. Again. The teams have split the first two matchups with neither team having much success at the Memorial Cup, so this year is it’s anyone’s series.
