Final Stars-Oilers Prediction & Pick

Both of these teams can score a high volume of goals. This will come down to goaltending then. Stuart Skinner has been solid in this series, but he struggled some in the series with the Canucks. If any of those struggles return, the Stars are going to win. Jake Oettinger has been the better goalie, and that will be the difference in this one.
