Good morning to everyone, but especially to …


After 30 years in the NHL, the Florida Panthers have finally won the Stanley Cup. They secured a 2-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers in Game 7, marking their first championship ever. The Panthers almost made history by blowing a 3-0 lead in the series but managed to hold on just enough. Carter Verhaeghe scored early and Sam Reinhart added what turned out to be the winning goal later on.

Reinhart’s performance was fitting since he led his team with 57 goals during the regular season. Sergei Bobrovsky, despite some shaky games earlier, was solid in this final match, stopping all but one of Edmonton’s shots. Gustav Forsling also played a key role by preventing Connor McDavid from scoring late in the game .

McDavid didn’t score any points in Games 6 or 7 but was still named MVP of the playoffs—only the sixth time this has happened for someone on a losing team. The Panthers didn’t get that trophy but lifting the Stanley Cup seemed like more fun anyway! Coach Paul Maurice and forward Kyle Okposo were particularly thrilled; Maurice waited 26 seasons as a head coach and Okposo waited 17 seasons for this moment.

Fans might think it’s about time these two got their hands on hockey’s greatest prize!

And not such a good morning for …


The Oilers’ locker room wasn’t as happy as Florida’s after losing Game 7 by just one goal. They had managed to come back from being down three games but couldn’t push it into overtime or win their first Stanley Cup since 1990.

Game 7 mirrored their struggles from earlier matches—they fell behind and couldn’t catch up despite some close calls late in the game. Leon Draisaitl didn’t score at all during this series even though he had ten goals before reaching this stage; Ryan Nugent-Hopkins only managed two points; and Connor McDavid didn’t score any points in Games 6 or 7 either .

Despite these setbacks, McDavid set records with his assists and total points during these playoffs which earned him MVP honors—a bittersweet end considering how close they came without winning it all again next year will be another chance though!
