The Edmonton Oilers will attempt to go up 2-0 as they face the Dallas Stars in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. We're here to share our NHL odds series, make an Oilers-Stars Game 2 prediction, and pick while showing you how to watch.

The Oilers defeated the Stars 3-2 in double overtime to snag the first game of the series and put themselves in the driver's seat. Now, they have a chance to take a commanding lead before heading back to Edmonton.

It was scoreless in the second period when Leon Draisaitl came off a rebound and kickstarted the Western Conference Finals with a goal. Significantly, it gave him a 13-game point streak, making him the sixth player in NHL history to begin the postseason. Zach Hyman later came off a loose puck to put it back in to make it 2-0. Then, Tyler Seguin put the Stars on the board when he came off a giveaway and found the back of the net to cut the deficit. The Stars forced overtime when Seguin found a juicy rebound and fired it into the net.

The teams played a scoreless extra period, with both teams getting significant chances with nothing going in. Eventually, someone had to win, and the Oilers found a way 32 seconds in when Connor McDavid redirected an Evan Bouchard shot into the net to give them the Game 1 win.

Why The Oilers Will Cover The Spread/Win

The Oilers fired 38 shots at the net, giving Dallas everything they could handle. Also, they leveled 33 hits and blocked 24 shots. But the Oilers managed to score and win despite only having one powerplay chance, which they whiffed on.

Draisaitl has been amazing in these Stanley Cup Playoffs, notching nine goals and 16 assists, including six tallies on the powerplay. Now, he looks to make it 14 games in a row with a point while also making an impact in the faceoff circle, where he has won 124 draws and lost 128. McDavid now has three goals and 20 assists, including one on the powerplay. Yet, he still needs to do better in the faceoff circle, where he has won 82 draws and lost 106.

Bouchard was a major reason for the victory again. He now has five goals and 15 assists, including one game-winner. Amazingly, he has three game-winners. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has four goals and 13 assists, including two game-winning conversions. Hyman now has 12 goals and three assists, including four powerplay markers.

The defense nearly collapsed in Game 1, as they blew a two-goal lead. Yet, they still did well enough to nab the win. Stuart Skinner is now 8-3 with a 2.7o goals-against average and a save percentage of .888.

The Oilers will cover the spread if their top scorers can continue generating some shooting chances. Then, their defense must remain vigilant.

Why The Stars Will Cover The Spread/Win

The Stars fired 33 shots at the net. Additionally, they won 56 percent of the faceoffs yet were unable to generate more scoring chances. Dallas also went 0 for 5 on the powerplay. Likewise, they had 29 hits and blocked 25 shots.

Miro Heiskanen has been a strong defenseman but still has five goals and eight assists since he could not do anything in Game 1. Thus, he needs to find a way to get on the scoresheet. Jamie Robertson has three goals and 10 assists, including two powerplay markers. Ultimately, he had a helper in Game 1.

Wyatt Johnston has seven goals and four assists, but he has been quiet over his last three playoff games. Seguin now has five goals and five assists, but his efforts were not enough in Game 1. Jamie Benn has three goals and six assists, including an assist in Game 1. Furthermore, he has won 93 draws and lost 54.

The defense slipped in double overtime, which cost them the game. Overall, they did a good job of adjusting after the initial two goals. Jake Oettinger is now 8-6 with a 2.10 goals-against average and a save percentage of .919. Now, he hopes to try and get the win before heading to Canada.

The Stars will cover the spread if their offense generates some chances on the power play. Then, they need their defense to tighten the hatches.

Final Oilers-Stars Game 2 Prediction & Pick

When the Stars lost Game 1 against the Colorado Avalanche, they bounced back for a 4-3 win over the Avs. Significantly, they only defeated the Avalanche by more than one goal in one game, and it was a road game. We expect this game to once again go down to the wire. Overall, the Oilers are incredibly solid and will do everything they can to steal Game 2 for a commanding lead. The Stars have not been as good at home as they have been on the road. Consequently, this will be close, with the Oilers covering the spread.
