DENVER (AP) — This Western Conference final is shaping up to be a high-scoring clash.

The Colorado Avalanche and the Edmonton Oilers are each averaging more than four goals a game in this postseason and play a similar style.

The Oilers have forwards Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. The Avs boast forward Nathan MacKinnon and defenseman Cale Makar.

It figures to be end-to-end, fast-paced action led by McDavid and MacKinnon. They're two of the most dynamic players in the game.

Game 1 will be in Denver on Tuesday.
