The GIST: After two electric Conference Final series, the Stanley Cup Final is set, with a Canadian squad in the mix for the first time since 2021 and Florida’s finest four wins away from redemption. Ice, ice, baby.

Edmonton Oilers top Dallas Stars in six games to win Western Conference Final: Edmonton’s Connor McDavid made magic happen last night, opening the scoring in the first period of the Oilers’ 2–1 Game 6 win over the Stars and sending Edmonton to a long-awaited chance at Lord Stanley.

  • The Oilers last competed for the Cup in 2006, when generational talent McDavid was just nine years old and The Devil Wears Prada was topping the box office. It may have taken a glacial pace, but the Oilers have finally made it back.

Florida Panthers return to Stanley Cup Final for second straight year: What a meow-ment for the reigning Eastern Conference champs, who eliminated the Presidents’ Trophy–winning NY Rangers with a 2–1 Game 6 win on Saturday. The Cats certainly learned their lesson from last year — let’s see if they can complete their revenge tour when the final begins later this week.
