Nail biter and a half, is the only way you can describe the Game Six experience. Down 4-2 going into the third period, the Edmonton Oilers clawed their way back to within one and then tied the game with four minutes remaining in regulation. Overtime was back and forth with the Oilers squandering a power play with a golden chance in front for digital Connor and digital Brad Marchand went to the other end and ended the dream of a home ice win for the Oil. Tonight, it’s all on the line. Sixty simulations into this pandemic we will know if the Oilers go home sad, or if it’s digital glory. Game time for Game Seven is 7pm MT right here in this article or follow us on twitch at OfficialOilersnation.
How we got here:
If you haven’t tuned in for any of the previous 50+ sims before, you have missed quite a bit. We simulated the entire rest of the regular season and then ran a simulation of the traditional playoffs set up that could have been based off points percentage for the teams. They were able to make it to the Western Conference finals in that one only to fall one game short battling back from 3-0 down to the Dallas Stars in the series.
