NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Calgary Flames at Edmonton Oilers Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN will host Thursday’s matchup between the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames in Game 5 of the second round of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs with puck drop set at 9:40 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta.

Edmonton put themselves in a commanding position with a 5-3 win in Game 4 that gives the Oilers a 3-1 lead in the Battle of Alberta. The Oilers jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period, but Calgary stormed back with two goals in the second and then Rasmus Andersson tied it with one of the strangest goals you’ll ever see.

Yes my friends, that is a non-empty net goal from 138 feet away.

The Flames’ momentum, however, was only temporary as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins got the game-winner for Edmonton with 3:27 left in regulation. Evander Kane added an empty-net goal, his 12th goal of the postseason.

Calgary is a -160 betting favorite to extend this series and win Game 5 on DraftKings Sportsbook. The Oilers are betting at +135.
