The Florida Panthers beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-1 at home on Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Final.

The Panthers had their first six shots of the game and had a great chance to score first when Warren Fogel was given a five-minute major suspension for kneeing Ettu Lostarinen. However, Mathias Janmark was tripped by Oliver Ekman-Larsson on the penalty kick. The two teams played four-on-four and Mathias Ekholm beat Sergei Bobrovsky on a two-on-one to give the Oilers a 1-0 lead with 8:43 left in the first period. It was the Oilers' first shot of the game.

The Panthers dominated much of the second period and tied the game on a Niko Mikkola field goal with 10:26 left in the period. Stuart Skinner saved a shot from Matthew Tkachuk on a two-on-one. He blocked a Sam Bennett shot from the black spot on a Panthers power play. Florida outscored Edmonton 13-3 in the second period.

With 5:53 left, the Oilers replaced Skinner for an extra possession, and soon after, Ekman-Larsson shot the ball through the glass, and the Oilers began to force their attack. However, the Oilers were unable to break through the defense. With 2:28 left, Aaron Ekblad shot the ball into the empty net.
