The Vancouver Canucks host the Edmonton Oilers in what should be an exciting Game 7 matchup in the second round of the 2024 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs on Monday. Quinn Hughes and the Canucks held a 3-2 series league against their Pacific Division rivals, but were upended by Connor McDavid and the Oilers 5-1 at Rogers Place. McDavid and teammate Leon Draisaitl led the charge in that game as Edmonton got scoring from five different players. The winner of Monday's game will travel to Dallas to face the Stars in the Western Conference Final.

Opening faceoff at Rogers Arena is set for 9 p.m. ET. Edmonton is a -161 favorite (risk $161 to win $100) on the money line in the latest Canucks vs. Oilers odds from SportsLine consensus while Vancouver is a +136 underdog. The over/under for total goals scored is 5.5 and Edmonton is a -1.5 (+164) favorite on the puck line.

Why you should back the Oilers

Every game in this second-round series was decided by a single goal until Edmonton broke that trend in Game 6. That game highlighted the Oilers' depth scoring as McDavid and Draisaitl played the set-up guys in what was probably Edmonton's most complete team effort in these playoffs.

Look for the McDavid and Draisaitl duo to turn the energy up even higher with a Western Conference Final bid within reach. Vancouver should also be wary of Zach Hyman, who leads the playoffs with 10 goals, and Evander Kane, who has found the back of the net in each of his last two games. See who to back at SportsLine

Why you should back the Canucks

The Canucks are expected to elevate their game back at Rogers Arena, especially since they have beaten the Oilers in four of their last five meetings there. The offense is also expected to rebound after registering just 15 shots on goal through a full 60 minutes in Game 6.

Hughes and the Canucks defense did a good job containing McDavid and Draisaitl in Game 1 and Game 5 in Vancouver, and they will have to regain that control to give rookie netminder Arturs Silovs a better chance of getting in the win column on Monday. The duo combined for five assists in Game 6, so keeping them from setting up Edmonton's depth scoring will be the key to Vancouver's success. See NHL picks for Wednesday at SportsLine
