The Edmonton Oilers are -166 favorites as they visit the Vancouver Canucks on May 20, 2024, at 9:00 pm ET, in Game 7 of their Western Conference second-round playoff series. Early betting trends show Oilers with 58% of moneyline bets, while Canucks have 42%. The opening total of 5.5 has seen 86% of bets on the over. Stay tuned for an exciting matchup between these two teams, with a spot in the Western Conference Final going to the winner of this all-Canada showdown.

So far in this series, the Canucks and Oilers have traded wins and losses in every other game, in what has been an evenly-matched series to this point. But a huge injury could swing Oilers vs Canucks Game 7 in the direction of the Oilers, who could become the first team in this series to win two games in a row. That injury is to Brock Boeser, who is going to miss Game 7 because of a blood clotting problem, which could have a major impact on who advances to the next round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Boeser has six points in this series for the Canucks, including three points in Vancouver's Game 3 win over the Oilers. Boeser joins starting goaltender Thatcher Demko on the list of Canucks who will not be a part of tonight's action, as Demko is out due to a knee injury. Without either of them, it is hard to see the Canucks winning this series-deciding game, even if they are at home where they have had a ton of success throughout the 2023-24 NHL season.

As for the Oilers, they became the first team to win a game by more than one goal in Game 6 of this series over the weekend. They put together a convincing 5-1 performance at home to force this Oilers vs Canucks Game 7. In that contest, Edmonton outshot Vancouver 27-15, while Connor McDavid had three assists in the final two periods of play to help the Oil pull away and force this decider. Expect McDavid to be hugely influential in this game as well and for Edmonton to advance to play the Dallas Stars for the Western Conference crown.
