How to Watch Los Angeles Kings vs. Edmonton Oilers: NHL Playoffs First Round Game 7 Live Stream, TV Channel, Start Time
The Edmonton Oilers host the Los Angeles Kings for Game 7 of the NHL Playoffs First Round, with the series knotted up 3-3. Watch on Saturday at 10:00 PM ET on ESPN. The Oilers are fifth (with 104 points) and the Kings sixth (99 points) in the Western Conference.
ESPN will host Saturday’s matchup between the Los Angeles Kings and Edmonton Oilers in Game 7 of the first round of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs with puck drop set at 10:10 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta.
Los Angeles had a chance to pull off the biggest upset in the Stanley Cup Playoffs thus far with Game 6 on home ice, but Edmonton superstar Connor McDavid had other ideas. On the day that he was nominated as a finalist for the Hart Trophy, McDavid had a four-point night (two goals, two assists) in the Oilers’ 4-2 road win Thursday. McDavid scored the first two goals of the game to give Edmonton a 2-0 lead, but the Kings fought hard like they have all series and got a power-play goal from Sean Durzi and a game-tying goal from Carl Grundstrom. The third period was a back-and-forth affair until Tyson Barrie tilted the ice.
The Kings or Oilers will snap a drought Saturday night. The Oilers haven't won a playoff series since 2017, while the Kings' last series win was the Stanley Cup Final in 2014.
The Oilers were able to force a Game 7 by beating the Kings in Game 6 behind a pair of Evander Kane goals. The second was an empty-netter, after which Kane triumphantly held up seven fingers to the Los Angeles faithful to celebrate what would be a 4-2 victory.
The Oilers still have the best player in this series in Connor McDavid, and he's lived up to the billing. McDavid had three points in Edmonton's Game 6 win, and he leads the NHL in points this postseason with 12.
The Kings, meanwhile, have gotten points up and down the lineup. Phillip Danault and Trevor Moore lead the way at five each. LA will need someone have to step up and stand out to compete with Edmonton's top-level talent in a deciding game.
Kings vs. Oilers Game 7 will air on ESPN in the United States. In Canada, the game will air on Sportsnet and CBC in English and TVA Sports in French.
