      Round 2, Game 6 - Highlights from Around the League 

      Game 6: Edmonton Oilers at Vancouver Canucks

      After going down early in Game 6, the simulation Oilers went on an absolute mission.

      3 Goals from Draisaitl, Khaira, and McDavid had the Oilers with a commanding, but dangerous
      3-1 lead to end the 1st.

      James Neal would add the lone goal in the 2nd and the Oilers were poised to make their first trip to the Conference Finals since 2006.

      The 3rd, however, seemed like a whole new game. Josh Leivo and Antoine Roussel scored midway through the frame and all of a sudden, we had a 4-3 game.

      Mikko Koskinen was the difference in the end, with a handful of marvelous saves, including a spectacular cross-crease series clincher with 0.5 seconds left on the clock, off of a shot by none other than Elias Pettersson.

      Full video highlights of Saturday's game are available here.

      The simulation Oilers move on the 3rd round of the #UnitedCup Playoffs and will face the winner of Game 7 of the Blues-Stars series. We will have Game 7 of the Blues-Stars series LIVE on our Facebook page on Monday, May 4th at 7pm!

      Here's What Happened
      in the Rest of the League:

      Game 6: Dallas Stars vs. St. Louis Blues

      This game was Dallas right from puckdrop, as the Stars looked determined to take this series to 7 games.

      Lindell, Cogliano, and Benn would give Dallas a 3-1 lead into the 3rd and the Stars would never let their foot off the gas from there.

      So much late-game pressure from the Stars meant that St. Louis never even had a chance to pull goaltender fake Jordan Binnington, as the puck was possessed in their zone for the entirety of the final 3 minutes.

      Jamie Benn would add one final blow in the final seconds and this series will head back to St. Louis for a deciding Game 7, which will be LIVE on our Facebook page, Monday night at 7pm!

      DAL – Lindell (3) – Seguin, Radulov

      STL – Tarasenko (1) – Perron, O’Reilly
      DAL – Cogliano (3) – Dickinson, Faksa
      DAL – Benn (3) – Radulov, Heiskanen

      DAL – Benn (4) – Gurianov, Klingberg

      3 Stars (1-3): 
      Benn, Radulov, Cogliano

      Series Tied 3-3

      Game 6: Carolina Hurricanes vs. Philadelphia Flyers

      Game 6 was a must-win for the Flyers, as the Hurricanes brought a 3-2 series lead back to fake Raleigh.

      Things appeared to be going as planned for Philadelphia, as they found themselves up 3-0, after 2.

      But as the old hockey saying goes, 3-0 is the 6th worst lead in hockey.

      Tuevo Teravainen would prove that theory correct, with an absolutely historic 3rd period performance.

      After scoring early, Teravainen would add not 1, but 2 more, earning him a rare 3rd period hat-trick and tying this game at 3 and forcing overtime.

      In the final moments of OT, Teravainen would strike again and float a weak one on net which Carter Hart couldn’t handle. This gave a rebound to Hurricanes Captain Jordan Staal—who drove home the loose puck—winning the series for Carolina 4-2.

      The Hurricanes will now face the winner of the Tampa Bay-Boston series in the #UnitedCup Playoffs Eastern Conference Semifinals. Game 7 of the Tampa Bay-Boston series goes Monday night.

      PHI – Niskanen (5) – Sanheim, Raffl
      PHI – Voracek (2) – Konecny, Voracek

      PHI – Couturier (2) – Konecny, Voracek

      CAR – Teravainen (3) – Slavin, Aho
      CAR – Teravainen (4) – Aho
      CAR – Teravainen (5) – Svechnikov

      CAR – Staal (2) – Teravainen, Gardiner

      3 Stars (1-3): 
      Teravainen, Staal, Aho

      Game 6: Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Boston Bruins

      We broadcast Game 6 LIVE on our Facebook page, Sunday night at 7pm! Thanks to everybody who tuned in!

      A battle of two superstar goaltenders, Game 6 was full of physicality and lots of huge saves from both ends.

      Tukka Rask shone throughout this game, making big save after big save, being seemingly unbeatable.

      The Bruins did beat Vasilevskiy (who was also very good) twice and were poised to take 2-0 win and send this series to 7 games.

      That was until Nick Ritchie took a high-sticking penalty with 9:25 left on the clock in the 3rd period.

      On the powerplay, Alex Killorn would take a feed from Anthony Cirelli and bury it, making this a 2-1 game with 8 minutes to go.

      The Lightning absolutely peppered Tukka Rask with high-quality shots for the remainder of the game, but it wouldn’t be enough. 

      Anders Bjork would add an empty netter in the final minute for the Bruins, to seal it.

      This series will turnaround quickly, with Game 7 going Monday night in fake Boston.

      No Scoring
