Edmonton Oilers Stats & Form
The Edmonton Oilers have done a great job reaching the Western Conference Finals and it seems that will be the top for them this season.
The Oilers are into a 3-0 hole against the top seed in the Western Conference, the Colorado Avalanche and are hoping to avoid being swept tonight.
Knowing the competitiveness of the Oilers, they still believe that they can get back to the series even though, that is pretty unlikely.
The Oilers are looking to become just the fifth team in league history to win a series after falling behind 3-0.
Edmonton has won 20 of the last 26 home games, 62 of the last 92 games played after one day off and has lost the last 4 games when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game.
Edmonton Oilers News
Oscar Klefbom will not play for the Oilers tonight.
Colorado Avalanche Stats & Form
The Colorado Avalanche are on the verge to sweep the Edmonton Oilers just as they did to the Nashville Predators in the opening round of the Playoffs.
The Avalanche learnt their lesson when they put the foot off the gas in the middle of the second round series against the St. Louis Blues and did not do the same against the Oilers.
Tonight’s game will not be easy for the Avalanche given the fact that Nazem Kadri is out for at least the rest of the Western Conference final against the Edmonton Oilers after being injured on an illegal hit by Evander Kane in Game 3.
Colorado has won the last 6 road games and 43 of the last 59 games after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game.
Colorado Avalanche News
Nazem Kadri and Samuel Girard will not play for Colorado tonight.

Edmonton Oilers vs Colorado Avalanche Betting Odds
The Colorado Avalanche are favourites to defeat the Edmonton Oilers with the odds at 116 for their win while the odds for the Oilers’ win are at 164. The draw is set at 370.
The total goals margin is set at 6.5 with both ways at -111.
The Colorado Avalanche are in a great position as they head into Game 4 of this Western Conference Finals series. They have outscored the Edmonton Oilers 16-8 through the first three games of the series. They are on the brink of winning the Western Conference and a win in Game 4 would wrap this series up and give them a long time to rest throughout the remainder of the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Edmonton Oilers have their backs against the wall in this one as they are in a must-win situation if they want to keep their season and this series alive. They are down 3-0 and are too good of a team to be swept against any team. The pride will force the Oilers to leave everything they have on the ice tonight and move the series back to Colorado.
