TODD'S EDMONTON OILERS ADVANCE TO THE STANLEY CUP FINALS
Enter to Win Oilers Action Figures, Plus Spawn and Sports Contest Winners
Friday, June 02, 2006
Quite a few of us here at McFarlane headquarters are rooting for Todd's team, the Edmonton Oilers (he is a part-owner) as they head to the Stanley Cup Finals!
Edmonton squeaked into the playoffs finishing the regular season with 95 points, earning the 8th seed in the Western Conference. What the Oilers have been able to accomplish since then has been nothing short of magical.
The Oilers knocked off the Detroit Red Wings, the winner of the Presidents Trophy, given out to the team that finishes with the most points during the regular season. Oilers goalie Dwayne Roloson was unbelievable during this series kicking out shot after shot, thus sending the Red Wings to the golf course for an early tee time.
Next up was the high-flying San Jose Sharks. This hard-fought series went six games with the Sharks taking the first two games. Edmonton rattled off the next four games behind Roloson's heroics and Chris Pronger's physical play and clutch scoring.
The Conference Finals pitted the Oilers against the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. The Oilers took the series 4-1, but it was much closer then the series revealed. Each of the Oilers wins were by two goals or less.
With the win against Anaheim, the Oilers have made NHL history. They have become the lowest seed to ever make the Stanley Cup Finals.
Three words: Let's Go Oilers!!!
