Our event of the day is game 7 of the NHL Western Conference semi final, as the Anaheim Ducks host the Edmonton Oilers. The Ducks will be hoping to end their poor record in seventh game deciders, after losing one every season for the last four years. Leon Draisaitl’s brillant hat-trick for the Oilers helped them win game six (7-1) to level the series. The Oilers have not been in the playoffs for eleven years but the last time they were in the postseason they did defeat the Mighty Ducks in the Conference Finals.
Honourable mentions across the globe go to the NBA Eastern Conference semi final between the Washington Wizards and the Boston Celtics. Reigning NHL Champions, the Pittsburgh Penguins, face the Washington Capitals in D.C in another NHL Playoff game 7. Atlético Madrid look to overturn a three goal deficit from the first leg in their Champions League second leg against rivals Real Madrid. Arsenal travel to the south coast to play Southampton in the Premier League to keep their slim top four hopes alive. However, with the Ducks and Oilers fighting against history for a place in the conference finals, this is the one to look out for tonight. Enjoy.
Have a great day.
