For the first time since 2021 (the Canadiens), a Canadian team had a chance of reaching the Stanley Cup Final.

Indeed, the Edmonton Oilers were just one game away from the final. But they had their work cut out against the ever-dangerous Dallas Stars.

In the end, the job was done and Canada will be represented in the final series.

Connor McDavid’s team eliminated Dallas in six games with a 2-1 victory.

They will now face the Florida Panthers.

The game got off to a good start for the home side.

Chris Tanev put the Oilers on the power play and 97 decided to take matters into his own hands.

What a goal to break the ice!

Alberta’s excellent power play was back at it before the end of the period.

Zach Hyman beat Jake Oettigner in the top slot to double his team’s lead.

The score remained tied until the third period.

Dallas closed the gap thanks to Mason Marchment.

Edmonton, despite only 10 shots on goal, held off the visitors. The two teams favoured for the Association Finals were thus defeated in six games.

As for the Oilers, who looked lifeless at the start of the season, they will be able to bring the Stanley Cup back to Canada in a few days’ time. Florida, however, stands in their way.

The series kicks off in Florida at 8pm on Saturday. Corey Perry will once again play in the ultimate series. Will this time be the charm?

Will the trophy return to Canada for the first time since 1993?
