Draisaitl helps Oilers rout Ducks 7-1 to force Game 7

Sekera suffered an undisclosed injury in the first period of Game 3 of the Western Conference second-round series from a hit by Ducks Ryan Getzlaf.

Draisaitl, meanwhile, had a hat trick and a five-point night, and he has recorded an incredible 11 goals and 21 points against the Anaheim Ducks in 11 games this season.

Game 7 is Wednesday night at Anaheim, with the victor advancing to face the Nashville Predators in the conference finals.

The Edmonton Oilers knew they needed to respond in a big way on Sunday. "We had a tough game in San Jose where we lost 7-0, and we came back and won the next two games in that series". There is also a look into the Ducks locker room after the game.

Yet, they're one game away from the Western Conference final against Nashville.

The Ducks now lead the series 3-2.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf have been preparing for these moments for their entire adult lives. "Even when they came back the other game, I didn't feel like we gave up or anything like that". It doesn't matter what the scoreboard says, in the playoffs, a loss is a loss and it doesn't really matter.

Can the Penguins once again put the last nail in the coffin of their foes in Washington, or will the Capitals force a Game 7 at home and try to live up to their season-long hype as a favorite to win the Cup. Edmonton also got goals from Zach Kassian and Anton Slepychev in front a euphoric wall of orange at Rogers Place.

Rickard Rakell forced extra time with a goal with 15 seconds remaining in regulation. The 2017 Art Ross Trophy victor netted a goal and added an assist as Edmonton built their 3-0 lead. Neither did the presence of Jonathan Bernier, who had rescued Gibson in a first-round comeback Game 3 win over Calgary. "I look at it as it's not the same group and I wasn't here so don't pin any of the Game 7s on me", he said. "It's pretty easy. I got to come up with a couple saves". They went on to drop those two series in Game 7. "When your top players want to play with a certain player, it's telling you volumes what they think of him as well".

Like a good leader, part father, part big brother, McDavid also gave Leon Draisaitl a tap on the arm to get the heck into the dressing room when Leon Draisaitl wore the look of an anguished man as he leaned on the boards watching the Ducks celebrating Corey Perry's double-overtime victor. "We got to the last three-and-a-half minutes and felt we were in control". Andrej Sekera was injured in game 5 and did not return.

Pittsburgh still leads the series 3-2 going home for Game 6 Monday, so the pressure remains on Presidents' Trophy-winning Washington, but finally cracking Fleury could make all the difference. Blowing a three goal lead in slightly over three minutes, and then losing in overtime had to be the dagger that would end up killing the Oilers' season, right? Unfortunately for the Oilers, it hasn't been the norm and in turn has made life far more manageable for the Ducks to deal with.

Edmonton's last Game 7 was the 2006 Stanley Cup final, which they lost 3-1 to the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh, N.C.

Draisaitl completed his hat trick on a give-and-go with Lucic with 4 1/2 minutes left in the second period when Kesler was serving a roughing minor. Draisaitl whiffed on breakaway, but the puck had enough forward momentum to slide under Gibson at 2:45. The Ducks captain will have to step up and erase the questions about his playoff "clutchness' if Anaheim is to advance and eliminate Edmonton". He shook off Josh Manson and beat Gibson with a forehand five-hole at 8:25.
