Why you should back the Oilers

Edmonton has tapped into something special over the last two games. Facing a 2-1 deficit in the series and falling behind 2-0 early during Game 4, the Oilers rallied with their backs against the wall to score five unanswered goals. Then they followed that up with a 3-1 win in Dallas to regain control of the series. 

Connor McDavid assisted on four of the eight goals Edmonton scored in Games 4 and 5, and the three-time Hart Memorial Trophy winner will look to will his team to the Stanley Cup Final with another win in Game 6. He leads all skaters with 29 points this postseason, and he’s had two goals and six assists so far this series. See who to back at SportsLine

Why you should back the Stars

The Stars also won in Edmonton in Game 3 of this series, with Jason Robertson netting a hat trick in the process. Dallas has now won 14 of its last 17 games on the road and is a serious threat to force another Game 7 with a win on Sunday. See who to back at SportsLine
