Good defence where you have a team that can produce Power Plays, and make use of them rather than squandering their opportunities? That's how you win with this roster.

He's doing a good job. Wouldn't have thought that to be the case considering his CV.
Any coach would look good when you have the wonder twins playing most of the game.

I don't think it is hard to coach the best player in the world...

Dallas hasn’t looked like they give a #### all series tbh. Their comeback win didn’t even look inspired and they’ve been soft as peanut butter on pucks every time I’ve checked in on them.

Oh well, won’t mind seeing Chucky and Co finally lay into the grease.

Every time a puck is anywhere near Oettinger it is scary.

Stars need to get the next goal.

Next goal wins, I say.

What is going on? This makes NO ####ing sense.

A team with Benn, Seguin, Pavelski, Robertson, Hintz, Stankoven, Heiskenan, Wyatt Johnston cannot score on Skinner? Like what the ####? It’s 20-8 in shots and they’re making Stuart Skinner look like Brodeur. This is absolutely ridiculous.

Does DeBoer really think Smith is better than Dellandrea?

Some encouraging thoughts:

The only team to take Edmonton to the brink of elimination was Vancouver, who in the first five games, won three. They pounded Edmonton--that's not something L.A. did with their stupid 1-3-1, and Dallas hasn't been very physical either, which I think plays to the Greasers advantage.

Florida is different. They are tough throughout their lineup. They have the 2024 Selke winner in their lineup. And then there's the goalies--Bobrovsky and Stolarz are better than Skinner and Pickard. Florida dismantled the best regular season team, holding Zibnanejad scoreless, and only allowing Panerin a goal in the last two minutes of the last game. Plus there's the bonus of a coach who will say whatever pops in his head and is often hilarious.

Obi Wan Tkachuk, you're our only hope...

Do they have a scoring chance? 20 shots from the point with no screen into a goalies crest is not threatening.

Easy win for the Oilers.

Dallas can't get to the inside and get any good scoring chances

How come this is the first time they're making the cup final in what is it? 8 years?

They're good enough to make the team make the playoffs on their own. But to succeed in the postseason, they need a roster and a coach that can make them win multiple series in a row.

19:35 for Heiskanen. So enjoyable to watch.

I would have thought that for a head coach sound defensive structure is in the job description, but the Oilers have had to go through what at least five to figure that out?

Good grief, what a terrible response. Not hard to coach Mcdavid but most of the rest of them are marginal NHLers.

Can’t watch the game but checking box score periodically. No penalties in the second? Refs letting them play now that the grease have a lead?

The Stars are definitely not shining and are dimming into the night sky as we speak.

They have clearly given up way too much.
