Can Florida win Stanley Cup? Panthers vs. Oilers Game 4 live stream, TV, time, odds, keys

Updated

The Florida Panthers are one win away from their first Stanley Cup championship and can clinch it Saturday night in Game 4 in Edmonton.

Anticipation? Yes, but also cue the clichés.

"It's there for us but you don't think about it," captain Aleksander Barkov said. "All you have to do is take one moment at a time."

The Edmonton Oilers have a big task ahead if they're going to come back from a 3-0 deficit.

"I can bring out all of the clichés about one game at a time and all that good stuff, but that's really what it is," Oilers defenseman Mattias Ekholm said. "Through three games, have we deserved to win a game? I think so. I think we've played at least two pretty good games. It hasn't happened for us."

The Oilers will try to avoid being the first team since the 1998 Washington Capitals to be swept in the Stanley Cup Final. Here's what to know about Game 4:

Captain Aleksander Barkov (16) will lift the Stanley Cup if the Florida Panthers beat the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.

What the Panthers need to do to win Game 4

  • Expect the Oilers' best effort of the series, especially early. Look at what the Dallas Mavericks did in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

  • Repeat their successful formula. Aggressive forechecking with support from all five skaters on the ice. Pounce on mistakes. Timely saves from Sergei Bobrovsky. That's how they managed to shut down the Oilers' stars and others before them in the playoffs.

  • Stay out of the penalty box. They're 10-for-10 on the penalty kill so far, but Edmonton has too much firepower.

What the Oilers need to do to win Game 4

  • Be aware of their surroundings. The Panthers excel at forcing turnovers and turning them into scoring chances. Edmonton made too many mistakes in Game 3.

  • Shoot high on Bobrovsky and get more traffic in front of him. That's how they scored three goals last game.

  • Don't be afraid to use Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl together earlier in the game. It worked in the third period Thursday night.
