Vancouver Canucks forward JT Miller believes that his team has been giving too much respect to Edmonton Oilers superstars Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.

Following Game 5, Miller voiced his opinion that a more aggressive approach was necessary. "We need to challenge them more," Miller stated, highlighting the need for increased assertiveness against the formidable duo.
While the Canucks secured a win in Game 5, their approach seemed to backfire in Game 6. The Oilers responded with overwhelming force, dominating the Canucks with a decisive 5-1 victory. Edmonton's performance was a textbook display of control, significantly outshooting Vancouver 27-15 and forcing numerous turnovers.
The statistical superiority was not just on the scoreboard. McDavid and Draisaitl played pivotal roles, contributing three assists and two goals respectively, proving that their influence on the game was as potent as ever.
As the series shifts back to Vancouver for Game 7, the Canucks face not only a formidable opponent in the Oilers but also internal challenges. The team received disheartening news that Brock Boeser, one of their top scorers, will miss the crucial game due to blood clots, a condition that could potentially end his career.
This upcoming game presents the Canucks with a critical opportunity to redefine their strategy and push through adversity. If Edmonton continues to play with the intensity they displayed in Game 6, Vancouver will need to find a new level of grit and determination to advance to the Western Conference Final. The outcome of this series will undoubtedly hinge on how well the Canucks can adapt and overcome the powerhouse that is the Oilers.
