The series starts on Wednesday night with the Flames hosting the Oilers after both teams survived a Game 7 in their first-round series.
The Oilers had to win two straight to get past the Kings after they went down 3-2 in their series.
They were able to survive when they shut out Los Angeles 2-0 in Game 7. Cody Ceci scored at 13:15 of the second period to break a scoreless tie and then Connor McDavid added an insurance goal with just four minutes left in the game to put the Kings away.
Now, they get a shot at their Canadian rival Flames in the second round.
The Flames won the Pacific division but had to battle to get out of their first-round matchup with the Stars.
The Flames led 3-2 in the series, but lost Game 6 and then needed to come back twice in Game 7 to get the win.
They trailed 1-0 and 2-1 but tied it both times and then won it when Johnny Gaudreau scored 15:09 into overtime.
They finally solved Stars goalie Jake Oettinger who had 64 saves in a great performance. The Flames, though, got the winner and are now one step closer to the Western Conference Finals.
