The Edmonton Oilers Must Win Their Final Games For a Huge Advantage

The Edmonton Oilers have clinched a playoff spot, but their work is far from done. They still need to win in order to secure home ice advantage for the playoffs, which can be a game-changer. The Oilers have been on a roll lately, having not trailed in their last 358 minutes and 11 seconds of play. They have also outscored their opponents 27-6 over that impressive span.

One player who has been a huge part of the Oilers' success is defenseman Mattias Ekholm, who is now a staggering +25 in just 19 games. If he keeps up this pace, he would be projected to be a +108 over a full season, which is an incredible feat.

Securing home ice advantage throughout the Western Conference playoffs is still very much within reach for the Oilers, and it could make all the difference in their playoff push. As the regular season winds down, every game becomes even more crucial, and the Oilers will be looking to finish strong and secure that all-important home ice advantage.
