Oilers look to even series with Panthers in game two tonight

Game two of the Stanley Cup Final is set for tonight and in it, the Edmonton Oilers will look to even the series and return home with a clean slate after falling 3-0 in game one.

The shutout in the series opener marked the first time this postseason that the Oilers were kept out of the net.

Florida’s Sergei Bobrovsky became the first goalie since Roberto Luongo in 2011 to record a shutout in game one of a final, stopping all 32 shots Edmonton sent his way.

The win marked the first time in the Panthers club history that they took a lead in a Stanley Cup Series after being swept on their first visit and losing in five games last year.

Edmonton will look to their star duo of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, as both players lead the league in scoring.

Right behind the duo are Evan Bouchard and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in third and fourth place respectively.

Puck drop is slated for 5 pm.

Afterwards, the two teams will make the trek to Edmonton for games three and four, which are scheduled for this Thursday and Saturday.
