The NHL's Stanley Cup Finals series continues. Tonight, in Edmonton, the local team hosted Florida. Before the match, the visitors led the series 3-0 and had the chance to clinch the Stanley Cup tonight. However, it seems the Canadians had their own plans.

The home team started the match vigorously, scoring the first goal in the fourth minute. Florida soon faced another goal, and although they managed to respond with one of their own, they conceded yet another.

In the second period, Edmonton maintained their pressure, scoring two goals within five minutes and adding another in the latter half of the period.

The final period was less eventful in terms of scoring, with Edmonton netting two unanswered goals. With this decisive victory, the Canadians triumph over Florida and secure their first win in the final series.
