Edmonton Oilers: What fans can expect from game 7

Yesterday was the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. But for Oilers fans, today feels even longer. Super excited, super anxious. This time last week, their team was facing a sweep, down three games to none. But the tide has turned. What a storybook ending this is going to be. You know, if they can pull this off, it's not only NHL history, but sporting history. Trevor Wheel is better known to Oilers fans as Mick Mullett. He lives four hours out of town but has attended 116 consecutive home games. You have a patient wife. She's starting to get a little bit worn out with it, but she's been pretty good so far. I'm hoping that at the end of Monday it's all going to be worth it. Win or lose, this marks the final home game of an historic season. We have real pride of place, which isn't usually common in Edmonton unfortunately, but so this is this is a time for Edmonton to be really proud. The city and the team have come together around a single word, a rallying cry. The ad campaign was inspired by the hit TV show Ted Lasso, A Cinderella soccer story about a team that, like the Oilers, started the season at the very bottom of the standings and battled their way back to the championship powered by belief. They've come back from everything this year and I've I've got total faith in them. Do you think you're going to win tonight? Yeah. This super fan was born with a rare condition. He struggles to talk and walk, but has no problem believing we're going to fuel up the jet back to Florida for Monday's game, right? Yeah. Only once in NHL history has a team come back from a three-game deficit to win the Stanley Cup. That was the Toronto Maple Leafs way back in 1942. The odds remain stacked against the Oilers, but that's exactly the way this city seems to like it. Lot of anticipation in Edmonton tonight. Thanks very much. That's Jeff Semple in Edmonton.
