The Oilers, even without McDavid’s participation, again scored a series of pucks against Florida. And they achieved their first comeback since 1945 from 0-3 in the final.

The bottle thrown in anger by Florida general manager Bill Zito after Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final clearly illustrated the fact that everything fell apart for the Panthers in the season’s marquee series. The Game 4 loss in Edmonton seemed like just an unfortunate miss for the Panthers, but it actually proved to be a demoralizing factor for Paul Maurice’s team. And then McDavid was over, and the Oilers minority reached a cosmic level, and now Florida is forced to fly away, to the province of Alberta, again instead of wildly celebrating the first championship in history.

And in the sixth game, Edmonton continued to dictate its conditions, approaching the most powerful climax of the season. Throughout the first half, Florida only bothered Stuart Skinner twice with shots on goal, and the Oilers opened the scoring. In the 8th minute, the home team straightened the counterattack spring, with Warren Voegele leading the way.

The second half had barely begun when Sergei Bobrovsky took the second hit. Another counterattack leaves Adam Henrik alone against the Russian goalkeeper and doubles the Oilers’ lead. Edmonton rejoices.

Ten seconds after the hosts’ second goal, Florida appeared to be back in the game. Aleksandr Barkov scored, but Edmonton’s coaching staff accepted the offside call and it turned out he was right.

In the game, “Florida”, of course, caught up, but Skinner was fine, “Edmonton” worked well as a team, continuing, among other things, to “kill” most of “Florida”, and they became strong counterattacks. a real punishment for the guests. In the 39th minute, Zach Hyman shot again (a second earlier Ryan Nugent-Hopkins made the most accurate shot) and the best sniper of this Stanley Cup tournament took care of Bobrovsky without problems. Hyman’s 16th goal of the 2024 playoffs!

3-0 after two periods, an energetic Edmonton with its fans, a dismantled Florida… It seems that we can calmly prepare for the seventh game, but already at the beginning of the third period Alexander Barkov created intrigue. The Finn, who had weakened in recent games, somehow easily and with just his hands suddenly faced the Oilers defense and scored a beautiful puck. And the quietest Russian defender, Dmitry Kulikov, in this episode scored the first point in the current playoffs.

But this goal didn’t change anything. Absolutely. “Florida” did not cheer up, or rather, “Edmonton” did not flinch and did not allow the “Panthers” to do anything. In an attack of desperation, Paul Maurice began to take out the goalkeeper three minutes before the end of regulation time, but in the end his team only conceded two empty-net goals with an interval of 12 seconds. At the same time, Darnell Nurse was assisted by goalkeeper Skinner!

Then, for the third game in a row, Florida received a full series of pucks, and today they did without McDavid’s points. But even without the captain’s help, Edmonton evened the score in the final series, coming back from 0-3 down. This occurred for only the third time in Stanley Cup Finals history; The two previous cases date back to the 1940s.
