Having lost their first game last night, the Oil Kings can’t afford to begin the tournament 0-2. They need to quickly rebound from a loss to the Shawinigan Cataractes last night by defeating the other QMJHL team in the tournament.

They can’t take the host club for granted, however, as on the opening night Saint John showed just how strong a team they could be despite their early exit from the QMJHL playoffs. It’s going to take the best Edmonton can muster to earn the needed three points, which should set up another quality match at this year’s event.

The Avalanche faced a truer version of Andrei Vasilevskiy than they’d seen in the first two games in Denver, and this time they were on the wrong side of a blowout. Tampa Bay scored six times, and that shifted the conversation from their goaltender to Colorado’s.

One thing the Avalanche can cling to is their success on the power play in the Final. They’ve solved the Lightning’s defensive formation five times with an extra man, and will try to keep that dominance intact to deal will an opponent that has a lot of skill and now a big boost of confidence after putting a win on the board.
