It’s almost go-time! This Wednesday, May 8th, the Edmonton Oilers will go head-to-head against the Vancouver Canucks in round two of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and it’s going to be wild!

For this reason, you’ll want to be prepared for the upcoming series with tickets, a reservation, or a spot at one of the city’s hottest watch parties.

Not sure where to start? We’ve got you.

Where to get tickets

They’re certainly not going to be cheap, but you can still purchase tickets for games three, four, and six against the Canucks.

If you’re interested, head over to Ticketmaster now and secure a spot for as little as $314 – but don’t hesitate.

These are sure to fly as we near Edmonton’s return to home ice.

Good luck!
