Sad Departure: 2 key players departed Florida Panthers just now….

Florida Panthers win the 2024 Stanley Cup with 2-1 victory over Edmonton Oilers

The Florida Panthers have won the 2024 Stanley Cup after a 2-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final.

With the win, the Panthers secure their first Stanley Cup since the inception of their franchise in 1993. They had made it to the Cup Final twice before in 1996 and last season in 2023.

The victory came after blowing a 3-0 series lead to the Oilers, but they managed to get the win on their fourth attempt to secure the Cup and avoid the reverse sweep.

This now marks the second consecutive time that the Oilers have lost in the Final, having also done so in seven games to the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006. Those have been their only two trips to the Final since winning five Cups in seven years from 1984 to 1990.

It didn’t take long for the action to get started. After an early power play for the Panthers, it didn’t quite turn into the momentum drainer when they didn’t convert like it had in the past for Florida, as six seconds later, Evan Rodrigues threw the puck on net and Carter Verhaeghe deflected it past Stuart Skinner. That gave the Panthers the lead in the game, but also their first lead since their Game 3 win.
