Edmonton Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers proudly display impressive results, returning home after a confident victory over the Arizona Coyotes with a score of 6:3, notably putting away four goals in the third period. Evander Kane, who netted two goals in this period, stressed the importance of maintaining composure and self-control in challenging situations. The Oilers have shown they can snatch victories, even when not playing their best game, a key to success on the road to the playoffs. The team has won 20 out of the last 23 matches, occupying leading positions in the Pacific Division.

However, despite the successful series, Edmonton encountered difficulties, losing three out of the last seven meetings. Coach Chris Knoblauch highlighted the team's ability for long winning streaks without extensive losses. Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl continue to be Edmonton's key players, with McDavid assisting 12 times in the last four games, and Draisaitl adding 3 goals and 5 assists. The Oilers rank fifth in goal scoring amongst all league teams, averaging 3.56 goals per game, with their defence allowing 2.89 goals.

Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins received a significant boost after a victory over the Dallas Stars in a shootout series scoring 4:3, a critical achievement for the team. Boston's goalkeeper Jeremy Swayman deflected 43 shots in overtime and only allowed one goal out of nine shootouts, displaying an outstanding game. This victory came at a critical moment when the Bruins were competing with the Florida Panthers for the lead in the Atlantic Division, despite a run of home games 2-3-2 after the All-Star break.

On average, the Bruins score 3.32 goals per game, and their defence allows 2.64 goals, ranking 5th in the NHL in terms of defensive reliability. Pastrnak stands out with 35 scored goals and 45 assists, while Jesper Boqvist also played an important role in the last match, scoring one goal and adding an assist. After their most recent victory, Boston aims to continue their success. Pastrnak leads the team's best players list with 80 points, including 35 goals and 45 assists.
