Stanley Cup Playoffs Player Props: Go all-in on Battle of Alberta
That’s all that stands in the way of the Edmonton Oilers and a berth in the Western Conference Final for the first time since 2006. The second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs continue tonight with a pair of pivotal Game 5’s, one of which being a potential elimination game. All eyes in this country will undoubtedly be on the Battle of Alberta as it resumes in Calgary with the Flames trailing 3-1 in the series following a crazy 5-3 loss in Game 4.

After a monster start to his postseason, the former Ranger is now mired in a dismal five-game point drought.
