ESPN will host Wednesday’s matchup between the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames in Game 2 of the second round of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs with puck drop set at 10:40 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta.
Game 1 was... something else. It was a throwback to the mid-1980s when goals came at a quick clip and guys were already ready to drop the gloves. It was a wild battle that saw Edmonton rally from a four-goal deficit in the second period before Calgary took control of the game on Matthew Tkachuk’s second goal of the game to give the Flames an 8-6 lead.
Tkachuk would add an empty-net goal and get a hat trick for the game. Blake Coleman scored twice for Calgary and Johnny Gaudreau had three assists. Connor McDavid had a goal and three assists for the Edmonton and Leon Draisaitl added a goal and two assists. Unfortunately most coaches don’t see the fun in 15 goals scored in a playoff game like most of the fans do, so I would expect a little less excitement in Game 5. Calgary is a -175 betting favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook for Game 2. Edmonton is betting at +150
