Oilers Heading Home From Florida Without A Win, SCF Game 3 On June 13 In Edmonton

The Edmonton Oilers trail the Panthers two games to none in the Stanley Cup Final following a 4-1 loss in Florida on Monday, June 10th.

The best of seven series now shifts to Rogers Place in Edmonton for Game 3 on Thursday, June 13th and Game 4 on Saturday, June 15th.

34 year old defenceman Mattias Ekholm from Borlange, Sweden staked the Oilers to a 1 to nothing lead in Game 2 by netting a goal during 4 on 4 action at the 11:17 mark of the first period of play at Amerant Bank Arena. Edmonton’s 27 year old Captain Connor McDavid from Richmond Hill, Ontario picked up an assist on Ekholm’s goal to notch his first ever point in a Stanley Cup Final.

Florida would tie the game up about mid-way through the second period, and then in the third it was Panthers 30 year old forward Evan Rodrigues from Toronto, Ontario who would break the game open by scoring his second and third goals of the SCF. He lit the lamp with even strength tally at 3:11 and a power play goal at 12:26.

The Panthers out shot the Oilers 29-19. Edmonton was 0-4 on the power play, while Florida went 1-6.
