    Skinner will be between the pipes for Game 7 on the road against the Panthers on Monday.

    Skinner and the Oilers will be looking for a fourth consecutive win and the Stanley Cup title in Monday's matchup. Over the last three outings, the 25-year-old netminder is sporting a 1.67 GAA and .942 save percentage. The Edmonton-born netminder will go up against Sergei Bobrovsky in the other crease heading into the final game of the 2023-24 campaign.

    17h ago

    According to Mathias Brunet of La Presse, Brassard announced Sunday that his playing days are over.

    Brassard didn't play in 2023-24 after suffering a fractured fibula against Philadelphia on March 30, 2023. The 36-year-old forward produced 215 goals and 545 points in 1,013 career regular-season games for the Blue Jackets, Rangers, Senators, Penguins, Avalanche, Panthers, Islanders, Coyotes, Oilers and Flyers.

    Oilers' Evander Kane: Available for Monday
    18h ago

    Kane (abdomen) is available for Game 7 on Monday against Florida, but head coach Kris Knoblauch did not clarify whether or not he'd be in the lineup, per TSN.

    Kane hasn't played since Game 2, and the Oilers have forced a Game 7 after being down 3-0 in the series. At the moment, it's unclear if the Oilers will want to adjust the lineup to fit Kane back in after they've caught fire. He produced a minus-4 rating in two games against the Panthers and has eight points with a minus-7 rating this postseason.

    Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Tending twine in Game 7
    19h ago

    Bobrovsky will patrol the home crease Monday in Game 7 against Edmonton, according to Colby Guy of The Palm Beach Post.

    Bobrovsky will be back on the ice for Monday's morning skate after skipping Sunday's session for routine-related reasons. He has surrendered 12 goals on 58 shots during his three-game losing streak. Bobrovsky needs to end that skid Monday for the Panthers to avoid becoming the second team in NHL history to blow a 3-0 series lead in the Stanley Cup Finals. The 35-year-old netminder has a 15-8 record with a 2.38 GAA and a .903 save percentage through 23 starts this postseason.

    Panthers' Carter Verhaeghe: Supplies helper
    2d ago

    Verhaeghe notched an assist and went minus-2 in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 6.

    Verhaeghe has often been one of the Panthers' most clutch performers, but he's fallen flat in the Stanley Cup Finals for the second year in a row. He has just two points over six contests versus the Oilers. Overall, he's at 19 points, 76 shots on net, 27 hits and a minus-7 rating through 23 playoff appearances.

    Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Nets lone goal in loss
    2d ago

    Barkov scored a goal on three shots and went minus-2 in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 6.

    Barkov had a tally in the second period overturned on a review, as the play was offside. He eventually got a goal anyway, but the Panthers couldn't build off of it. The 28-year-old has five points over six games against the Oilers, but the Panthers' depth scoring has evaporated almost as quickly as their 3-0 series lead. Barkov is at 22 points, 57 shots on net, 50 hits, 24 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating over 23 playoff outings.

    Janmark recorded an assist, two shots on goal, four PIM and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 5-1 win over the Panthers in Game 6.

    Janmark has stepped up with three points during the Oilers' three-game winning streak. The 31-year-old forward is up to seven points, including a pair of shorthanded goals, as well as 21 shots on net, 21 hits, 12 PIM and a plus-5 rating through 24 playoff appearances in a bottom-six role.

    Nugent-Hopkins posted an assist and three blocked shots in Friday's 5-1 win over the Panthers in Game 6.

    Nugent-Hopkins jarred a puck loose and fed Zach Hyman for a breakaway tally. A strong playmaker, Nugent-Hopkins had gone seven games without an assist prior to Friday. The 31-year-old is at 22 points (10 on the power play), 36 shots on net, 41 hits and a minus-1 rating through 24 playoff appearances.

Draisaitl is at 31 points, 73 shots on net, 23 hits, 16 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating through 24 playoff outings.

    Foegele scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's 5-1 win over the Panthers in Game 6.

    Foegele has stepped up big in this series -- he's racked up two goals and three assists during his four-game point streak. The winger had just three points over his first 17 playoff appearances this year. Foegele is likely to remain on the second line for Monday's Game 7 as the Oilers try to complete the reverse sweep.

    Kane was considered a game-time call but will miss his fourth straight contest. The veteran winger has eight points in 20 games this postseason and was held scoreless with a minus-4 rating through two appearances against Florida prior to his injury. His status for a potential Game 7 on Monday is unclear at this time.

    Kulikov posted an assist, two shots on goal and four hits in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 6.

    The helper was Kulikov's first point since April 4, ending a 27-game dry spell that had covered all of the Panthers' postseason run. While his offense has been absent, the 33-year-old blueliner has racked up 55 hits, 25 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating over 23 playoff appearances. He's been a fixture in a third-pairing role, though that's not one that comes with much ice time given the talented defensemen on the Panthers' roster.

    Broberg has three points over nine appearances since he became a regular in the Oilers' lineup. More impressively, he's added a plus-8 rating and hasn't taken a minus in any of those contests. The defenseman has added 17 blocked shots and six shots on net while seeing bottom-four minutes and minimal power-play time.

    Kulak recorded an assist and two blocked shots in Friday's 5-1 win over the Panthers in Game 6.

    Kulak has a helper in three of the last four games. The defenseman has been a surprising source of depth offense with eight points through 24 playoff contests after he logged just 16 points in 82 regular-season outings. He's added 45 blocks, 22 hits, 14 PIM, 21 shots on net and a minus-1 rating this postseason while skating on the third pairing.

    Ekholm has earned three points over six contests in the Stanley Cup Finals. The 34-year-old defenseman is up to 10 points, 41 shots on net, 28 hits, 44 blocks and a plus-9 rating through 24 outings this postseason. He remains a stalwart on the first pairing, though his commitment to defense has led to limited offense.

    Nurse has two goals this postseason, and he's scored both of them over the last three games. The defenseman is up to six points, 42 shots on net, 48 hits, 62 blocked shots and a minus-9 rating through 24 playoff contests. He'll likely remain in a second-pairing role for Monday's Game 7.

    Bobrovsky allowed three goals on 19 shots in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 6. The last two goals were empty-netters.

    The Oilers didn't dominate early in the game, but they converted their chances while limiting the Panthers' offense over the first two periods. Bobrovsky ultimately wasn't up to the task, and he's now allowed 15 goals over his last four games, with losses in each of the last three. He'll presumably have one more chance to secure the Stanley Cup for the Panthers in Monday's Game 7 on home ice, as it's unlikely head coach Paul Maurice will switch to backup Anthony Stolarz for the winner-take-all contest.

    Skinner rattled off his third straight win to dig the Oilers out of a 3-0 series deficit. This victory sends the series to Florida one more time for Game 7 on Monday. Skinner has yet to win four games in a row this postseason -- the last time he did so was Feb. 26-March 5 during the regular season. The 25-year-old goalie's performance while helping to pull the Oilers back from the brink makes it a virtual guarantee he'll get the nod for Monday's winner-take-all contest.

He is now considered healthy and is set to battle Alex Lyon for the No. 1 job with the Red Wings next season, though Yzerman did say that he will look at the goalie market come the start of free agency.
