Panthers and Oilers Battle for the Cup

Panthers and Oilers Battle for the Cup

It all boils down to this. Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals will be held tonight in Sunrise, Florida, where the Florida Panthers, who took a 3-0 series lead, face the red-hot Edmonton Oilers, who are on a three-game winning streak consecutive This is the first time since 1945 that a team has forced a Game 7 after being down 3-0 in the Stanley Cup Final.

Connor McDavid and crew were held in check through the first three games with Panthers goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky dominating in net. However, that all changed in Game 4 and the Oilers got their offense going, led by McDavid while Stuart Skinner bounced back from a rough start in net.

In Game 6, despite holding McDavid scoreless, the Panthers fell behind early. Warren Foegele, Leon Draisaitl, Adam Henrique and Zach Hyman contributed to the Oilers' lead. Although Aleksander Barkov scored for Florida, Skinner and the Oilers shut them out. Two empty net goals later, the series was tied and the momentum shifted to Edmonton.

The Panthers still have the tools to win, but they face immense pressure and the weight of history. It's been 82 years since the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs overcame a 3-0 deficit to win the Stanley Cup.

The Oilers are poised to join in, potentially completing the greatest comeback in Stanley Cup playoff history.
