Game 1 will begin on Monday, May 2, and Game 2 will be played on Wednesday, May 4, — both in Edmonton — before the series turns to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Friday, May 6, and Game 4 on Sunday, May 8. Times and broadcast info are to be determined.
The full Stanley Cup Playoffs schedule has yet to be released.
The Oilers have a home-ice advantage in the series after clinching second in the Pacific Division. The Oilers have a 47-27-6 record for 100 points with two games remaining in the regular season. Los Angeles is third in the division with 98 points by way of a 44-27-10 record with one game remaining.
The Oilers announced earlier Thursday that they would be opening up the ICE District for tailgating and viewing parties, as well as a “mega” 50/50 jackpot.
