In Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, the Florida Panthers secured a 3-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.

The Panthers’ goaltender, Sergei Bobrovsky, played a crucial role in the win by making 32/32 saves, including several key stops on breakaways and high-danger scoring chances. Carter Verhaeghe, Evan Rodrigues, and Eetu Luostarinen scored the goals for Florida, with Verhaeghe’s goal coming on the team’s first shot of the game.

The win gives Florida a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series and marks a strong start for the team in their quest for their first Stanley Cup championship.
