The new play-in simulation went well for the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday afternoon. Winners in Game One by a whopping score of 8-1. The largest score we have seen in a sim yet and I was honestly in shock. Hopefully the Oil will bring that fire again and the Oilers can take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five play-in series. Stick around, right here in this article to see if they can do it with puck drop at 7pm MT.
About 15 minutes prior to game time, the stream will be live here:
How we got here:
In case you missed it, we ran a completely random sim (aside from some tweaking to the sliders to make them more realistic for a 20 minute period sim) and the @Edmonton Oilers, valiantly fought hard to make a series of it in the Western Conference Finals before falling to the @Dallas Stars in 7 games.

When we ran the previous playoff stream, you asked for the ability to pick the jersey matchup each night. We love doing this for you and this will continue, I will just be running the jersey polls the day before a game to get them out there longer, and to get others to tune in as well as you!
