Florida Panthers win NHL Stanley Cup

MIAMI-. The Florida Panthers They defeated the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 on Monday and became champions for the first time of the Stanley Cup, the final of the North American Ice Hockey League (NHL), for an overall 4-3 in the series.

The American team thus ruined the comeback of the Oilers, who had forced the seventh and final game of the series after losing the first three.

The painful fall of the Edmonton team, which would have been the second to win the trophy after overcoming a 3-0 deficit, extends Canada’s title drought to 31 years.

Supported by their home crowd, Carter Verhaeghe and Sam Reinhart scored the winning goals for the Panthers, who had succumbed in the Stanley Cup a year earlier against the Las Vegas Golden Knights.
