SUNRISE, Fla. – The Edmonton Oilers made an impressive comeback from a three-game deficit in the Stanley Cup Finals, striking a 5-1 win over the Florida Panthers to force a decisive Game 7. With the series now tied at three games each, both teams will face off again in Florida for the final showdown to determine the champion.

The Oilers’ journey from 0-3 down in the best-of-seven series to a tied position has been fueled by their unwavering determination to end Canada’s long-standing Stanley Cup drought. This remarkable turnaround reflects the team’s resilience and ability to overcome challenges, showcasing their mental fortitude and belief in their capabilities.

Oilers forward Connor Brown emphasized the team’s confidence and belief in their ability to come back from adversity, drawing on past experiences to fuel their current success.
