I'll say 4-2 Avs with the top 2lines drawing lots of penalties. I'll pick Reasoner and York as the Oilers scorers.

Avs question marks:

Will they score 400 goals?
Will they fail to win the Cup?

Oilers question marks:

Will they be in the top half of the league in gf?
Will they make the playoffs?

The Oilers' only advantages in this game are that they want(need) the win a whole lot more, they get the last line blend, and they'll have 16,500 ravenous fans at their back. I'm sure that the Avs gameplan is to get the fans out early, the true test of the Oilers' defense and goaltending will come in the very early stages of the game.

You'd better be firmly planted in front of the tv with all your brewskies and munchies at the drop of the puck, one ill-timed trip to the fridge could cost us the game! :p
