Chants of “We Want The Cup” Echo in Edmonton as Oilers Force Game Seven

Zach Hyman scores for Edmonton against Florida in Game 6 of the 2024 Stanley Cup Finals

The Edmonton Oilers have resurrected their season, forcing a decisive Game Seven in the Stanley Cup Finals after a 5-1 win over the Florida Panthers in an electrifying atmosphere at Rogers Place.

After Connor McDavid carried the Oilers in Game Five to extend the series, Game Six saw the supporting cast step up in a big way. Warren Foegele, Adam Henrique, and Zach Hyman scored the initial goals for Edmonton. Later, they added two empty-net goals to secure the game. In the final minutes, chants of “We Want The Cup” echoed through Rogers Place.

Even Chris Cuthbert went quiet on Sportsnet’s feed as the crowd’s chants filled the arena.

The Oilers are now inching closer to making NHL history. If the Oilers win Game Seven, they will become the first Canadian team since 1993 to hoist the Stanley Cup. They will also be the first team to come back from a 3-0 series deficit in the Finals since the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Oilers’ playoff journey has been spectacular. Their resilience and unyielding spirit have been evident as they clawed back from a 3-0 series deficit. With one more win, they will achieve what only four teams in NHL history have done: win a series after trailing 3-0. Their potential victory would mark a historic moment, not only as the first Canadian team since the Montreal to win the Cup in 31 years but also as a team that defied the odds in dramatic fashion.
