Since I'm bored here's a quick history of the Oilers and sweeps:

Historically this is only the fifth time (out of 55 playoff series) in their history the Oilers have been down 3-0 in a playoff series*:

1983: SCF against Islanders
1992: Campbell final against Blackhawks
1999: First round against Stars
2021: First round against Jets

They were swept in all four of those series, so they've never managed to stave off elimination when on the brink of being swept.

Time to change the narrative tonight and make this series resemble 1998.



* They were also down 2-0 in a best of 5 against the Flyers in 1980 and got swept in that one as well.


On the flip side the Oilers have swept teams in best of 7s seven times*:

1983: Campbell finals against Blackhawks
1984: Campbell finals against North Stars
1985: Smythe finals against Jets
1987: Smythe finals against Jets
1988: Smythe finals against Flames
1988: SCF against Bruins (although there was a tie game here, this is officially considered a sweep)
1990: Smythe finals against Kings

Twice the Oilers had a 3-0 lead and failed to get out the broom. In the 1983 Smythe final, they were up 3-0 vs the Flames and lost game 4. They would quickly make amends with a tidy 9-1 win in game 5. And of course in 2006, they went up 3-0 versus the Mighty Ducks in the Western conference final, dropped game 4 at home, but won a squeaker to take game 5.

* They also have 5 sweeps in first round best of 5s: 1981 vs Habs, 1983 and 1984 vs Jets, 1985 vs Kings, and 1986 vs Canucks.
