2024 Stanley Cup Final: Oilers Aim for Historic Comeback

The Edmonton Oilers are on the brink of making history.

If they beat the Florida Panthers in Game 7 of the 2024 Stanley Cup Final, they’ll become only the second team ever to come back from a 3-0 series deficit and win. The Toronto Maple Leafs were the first to do it in 1942, reversing their fortunes against the Detroit Red Wings. That series was notable for being the first time a Stanley Cup Final went to seven games, with Toronto outscoring Detroit 15-4 in the last three games and clinching a 3-1 victory in Game 7.

Now, Edmonton has a chance to join that exclusive club. Since falling behind 3-0, they’ve been an offensive powerhouse, scoring an astonishing 18 goals over three games. They seem to have figured out Panthers’ goalie Sergei Bobrovsky completely. Connor McDavid has been exceptional, likely headed for the Conn Smythe Trophy with his three goals and seven assists over four games .

Oilers’ Offensive Surge

Edmonton’s offensive explosion is something fans are buzzing about. They’ve transformed into an unstoppable force, leaving everyone wondering if they can keep up this momentum for one more game. Fans might think this comeback is one of the most thrilling moments in recent hockey history.

If they manage to win on Monday night, it will be their first Stanley Cup victory since defeating the Boston Bruins in five games back in 1990.

What do you think? Can they pull off this incredible comeback?
