In the latest episode of the "32 Thoughts Podcast," NHL aficionado Elliotte Friedman brought to light a striking prediction about tonight's nail-biting Game 7.

Amidst the series' roller-coaster ride, an unnamed coach foresees an overwhelming victory for one side, setting the stage for what could be a game dominated by one team's sheer firepower. According to the anonymous strategist:
"A coach said to me, he says he thinks what's gonna happen is one team is gonna get out to a lead, and we might see the dam break. He says it could be a 6-1 game. Now this is a coach, so he knows a lot more than I do."

-Elliotte Friedman
While Friedman leans towards a potential overtime due to the close battles seen throughout the series, he also acknowledges the possibility of an Edmonton Oilers rout. The team's potent offense makes them prime candidates to tip the scales decidedly in their favor.
The crux of tonight's game, however, may lie between the goalposts. Young goaltenders Silovs and Skinner are under the microscope, as their performance could very well dictate the flow and ultimately the outcome of the game. Both have exhibited vulnerability under pressure, and tonight's game is an unforgiving test of their mettle.
"Skinner especially has been shaky at times, showing that he may not be ready for this type of pressure yet in his career," notes Friedman.
As both teams gear up to challenge each other's net-minders aggressively from the get-go, the goaltenders' resilience could lead their team to victory or spell their downfall. Tonight's Game 7 is not just another match—it's a battle of nerves, strategy, and raw power, promising to keep fans on the edge of their seats.
