Sportsbook Wire: Oilers 3, Stars 2

Kevin J. Erickson writes: "Edmonton did a good job gaining the road split in Dallas, seizing home-ice advantage from the Stars. Now, the Oilers look to keep that advantage in their 1st home date of the series. Edmonton has won 3 of the past 4 games at home, and it is 4-2 in 6 home dates in the postseason." Oilers' Stuart Skinner will have a big game

Neil Parker writes: "Oilers No. 1 Stuart Skinner has found his game. He’s turned in a .921 SV% and 1.62 GAA across his past four starts following a two-game breather last round, and his saves total has bottomed out. Skinner ... [has] gone under the number in seven of his past eight games, so we're landing a low number Monday. Hats off to the Oilers, but the Stars are too well coached to continue being so passive in the offensive zone. Skinner is going to see more rubber in Game 3."

Winners and Whiners: Stars to win

Chris King writes: "Dallas is 5-1 on the road in the postseason and won’t be rattled by playing in Edmonton. Take the Stars in this contest as they get the victory to regain home ice advantage."
