Oilers erase 3-0 Stanley Cup Final deficit and force a Game 7 vs. Panthers

NBC Universal, Inc.

The 2024 Stanley Cup Final was once a 3-0 series. Now, it's going to a Game 7.

The Edmonton Oilers won a third straight elimination game over the Florida Panthers on Friday to even up series at 3-3 and force a Game 7. The Oilers took Game 6 by a score of 5-1 at Rogers Place in Edmonton.

Connor McDavid and Co. are now one win away from becoming just the second team in NHL history to win the Cup Final after once trailing 3-0 in the series. There have been just four NHL clubs to ever overcome a 3-0 series deficit in the postseason.

The Oilers opened Game 6 with three unanswered goals, carrying a 3-0 lead into the third period. Warren Foegele scored the contest's first goal seven minutes into the opening period.

Aleksander Barkov got Florida on the board one minute into the final period, but the Panthers wouldn't get any closer as their power-play struggles continued. Florida went 0-for-3 on the man advantage, including a third-period power play opportunity.

Ryan McLeod and Darnell Nurse tallied empty-netters for Edmonton in the final minutes to seal the victory.

Game 7 of Oilers-Panthers is scheduled for Monday night. The Panthers, seeking their first Stanley Cup in franchise history, will have home-ice advantage at Amerant Bank Arena in Sunrise, Florida.
