Oilers, Ducks ready for Game 7 showdown

Winner will play Predators in Western Conference Final

by NHL Public Relations @PR_NHL / NHL.com

NEW YORK -- A berth in the Western Conference Final is on the line when the Anaheim Ducks meet the Edmonton Oilers in Game 7 of their Second Round series on Wednesday, May 10 at Honda Center in Anaheim (start time and broadcast coverage TBA).

The Ducks will play host to a Game 7 for the fifth consecutive year, having faced the Detroit Red Wings (2013), Los Angeles Kings (2014), Chicago Blackhawks (2015) and Nashville Predators (2016) in recent winner-take-all games at Honda Center. The Ducks will be vying to snap a five-game losing streak in all Game 7s since 2009.

The Oilers will play their first Game 7 in nearly 11 years. Their most recent appearance was in the 2006 Stanley Cup Final, a 3-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. Wednesday's game marks Edmonton's fifth consecutive Game 7 on the road since 1991.

Oilers forward Milan Lucic will be competing in the 10th Game 7 of his NHL career, the most among players on both rosters. Lucic has recorded 4-2--6 in nine such games, all as a member of the Boston Bruins.

Forward Patrick Eaves has skated in a team-leading seven Game 7s for the Ducks, followed by Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry (six each).

The winner will advance to the Western Conference Final, owning home-ice advantage against the Nashville Predators.
