Playoff Live Stream Sim: Round 3 Game 7 – Stars @ Oilers 7pm MT

I closed out the stream with me exclaiming the senitment of “I can’t believe it worked out” and I genuinely meant it. I can’t believe this is where we are after being down 3-0 to the Dallas Stars.  Game Seven of the Western Conference Finals goes tonight at digital Rogers 7pm MT. What will happen tonight, the simulation will determine if we head on to play in the Stanley Cup finals… or if Step Four of the Four Part come back plan (you will remember it’s 1. Win, 2. Win, 3. Win, and now 4. Win) falls short. Tune in at 7pm MT to join us won’t you?

Whether we win or lose this one, I want to say a genuine thank you to everyone who has tuned into these streams. It’s been a passion play for me to be able to entertain you Oilers fans and give us all a place to watch and tune into consistent action that we have no idea how it’s all going to turn out.

About 15 minutes prior to game time, the stream will be live here:

Now with only two series going on, and then with only one more remaining… I figured I will just include recaps here.

Metropolitan 1 Seed – Washington Capitals vs Wild Card 2 Seed – New York Islanders:

Game Six:

The Wrap: 

1st –

WSH – 1:58 Ovechkin (Backstrom, Wilson)
WSH – 3:41 Kuznetsov (Wilson, Kovalchuk)
WSH – 4:40 Oshie (Backstrom, Vrana)

2nd –

NYI – 10:29 Martin (Pulock, Pageau)

3rd-

NYI – 5:58 Bailey (Pageau, Boychuk)
WSH – 18:58 Carlson (Hathaway, Dowd)
NYI – 19:58 Brassard (Barzal)

Three Fists-

3. NYI D. Brassard (1G)
2. NYI J. Bailey (1G)
1. NYI T. Greiss (25 saves, .961 SV%)
The Wrap: 
Were the locals picking the three stars because that was a crazy game and after scoring three goals in the first, the New York Islanders had to work their way back into this one, coming as close as one goal before the Washington Capitals potted an ENG to finish it off. We will have to wait until after Game Seven to find out who either the Oilers or the Stars will play in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Life After The Playoffs:

The reality is, this fun ride will end. I hope not tonight, or Saturday night.. or even anytime soon after that (obviously).

Whether it’s the Oilers hoisting the cup, or other less desirable outcomes… I want to keep doing this for you. I think people enjoy it, and I really do selfishly enjoy it as well.

So the question is, what do you want to see from the stream?

Do you want a do over from these playoffs? Do you want to see the Stars/Oilers series redone? Would you like to see me go crazy and put together a team of all Connor McDavid’s up against the entire league for a season? Do you want to see me do a marathon stream for charity?

What do you want, I’d love to hear what you think.


Now, does anyone have any score predictions for today’s game?
