The New York Rangers and Florida Panthers are left to duke it out in the East, while the Dallas Stars will look to put an end to the Edmonton Oilers' run.

NHL playoff series odds

All odds courtesy of bet365 as of 5-25

Edmonton Oilers vs Dallas Stars series odds

Team To win To win in 4 To win in 5 To win in 6 To win in 7
Oilers Oilers -190 +575 +425 +350 +550
Stars Stars +160 N/A +900 +600 +425

The Edmonton Oilers almost blew yet another three-goal lead in Game 7 against the Canucks, but in the words of Elton John, they're still standing. That may not be the case for much longer as the Dallas Stars possess one of the deepest lineups in hockey and have a brick wall in net they've named Jake Oettinger.

The Stars have too much depth for the Oilers to handle, and the battle in net isn't even close. The Canadian Cup drought will continue and Dallas will make their second final in five years.

Pick: Stars to win series (-130)
Pick made on 5-22.

Florida Panthers vs New York Rangers series odds

Team To win To win in 4 To win in 5 To win in 6 To win in 7
Panthers Panthers -180 +800 +500 +375 +500
Rangers Rangers +150 +1,200 +750 +650 +500

The Florida Panthers dismantled both the Tampa Bay Lightning and Boston Bruins to get here, and they're favored over the New York Rangers despite no home-ice advantage. The play of Igor Shesterkin cannot go unmentioned and it may turn some people off of betting the Cats, but they just took down both Andrei Vasilevskiy and Jeremy Swayman to get here.

Now I'm not going to sit here and pretend Shesterkin isn't better than both of those netminders, but Florida is plenty capable of winning low-scoring, tight games, and I think their scoring depth and PK will help them win enough to make it to their second-straight Cup Final.

Pick: Panthers to win (-150)
Pick made on 5-22.

The Florida Panthers (+220) have the best odds to win the Stanley Cup among Eastern Conference Contenders, while the New York Rangers (+370) have the worst. As for the Western Conference, the Dallas Stars (+230) stand on top, while the Edmonton Oilers (+260) odds are slightly behind.

2023-24 Stanley Cup champion: Canadian teams vs the Field odds 

Champion FanDuel
Canadian teams (Oilers Edmonton Oilers) +186
Field -245

Odds as of 5-25.

If a Canadian team doesn't win this year, it'll mark 31 years since the feat was last accomplished, and the Edmonton Oilers (+260) are the only ones still alive.

As much as I do love the Oilers, I can't see a world where they get through the West. I think teams like Dallas and Vegas are more prepared for a deep playoff run, and I see the Canadian drought continuing.

Pick: Field (-390)
Picks made on 4-17.
