#NationSims2 Playoff Live Stream Sim: Round 1 – Game 4 – Stars vs Oilers 7pm MT

The Edmonton Oilers have the Dallas Stars on the brink of elimination by way of the sweep. A sentence that if you had asked me a few weeks ago during #NationSims1.. I would have laughed at, and then sobbed. The Oilers have avenged the Western Conference Finals loss at the hands of the Stars in amazing fashion. Tonight at 7pm MT, they will be able to finish it (we hope). Puck drops right here in this article.

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.
