The comeback is on. Down 3-0 to the Stars in Game Four of the Western Conference Finals, The Oilers eeked out a 2-1 victory in front of the Dallas faithful to force a Game Five. Step two of the massive comeback starts tonight at 7pm MT right here in this very article. We hope to see you there. In the meantime, or during the broadcast, feel free to have a read around the site and check out the lineups, schedule and commentary about the rest of the playoffs and the plans for afterwards.

About 15 minutes prior to game time, the stream will be live here:

The Other Series:

I have taken some time in the past to write a big article wrapping all the other series.

Nation Playoff Sim – Round Two Recap and Third Round Schedule

Now with only two series going on, and then with only one more remaining… I figured I will just include recaps here.

The Eastern Conference Final is all tied up as the Washington Capitals defeat the New York Islanders on their home ice and it’snow a best-of-three. The big boys come alive again for the Caps as Holtby stands tall.

Life After The Playoffs:

The reality is, this fun ride will end. I hope not tonight, or Saturday night.. or even anytime soon after that (obviously).

Whether it’s the Oilers hoisting the cup, or other less desirable outcomes… I want to keep doing this for you. I think people enjoy it, and I really do selfishly enjoy it as well.

So the question is, what do you want to see from the stream?

Do you want a do over from these playoffs? Do you want to see the Stars/Oilers series redone? Would you like to see me go crazy and put together a team of all Connor McDavid’s up against the entire league for a season? Do you want to see me do a marathon stream for charity?

What do you want, I’d love to hear what you think.

Now, does anyone have any score predictions for today’s game?
