Recently, the seventh game of the Stanley Cup Final took place. The Florida Panthers defeated the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 to become champions.

According to The Athletic, this game garnered an average audience of 7.66 million viewers in the United States, the best result since 2019. At that time, the seventh game of the final between Boston and St. Louis attracted 8.2 million viewers.

In North America as a whole, the decisive game between Florida and Edmonton was watched by 16.3 million people. This is the best result on the continent since 2011, when the seventh game of the final between Vancouver and Boston was held.

It should be noted that this is Florida's first Stanley Cup win in the club's history. The club was founded in 1993 and has twice been the best in the Eastern Conference but had never won the NHL championship.

Additionally, Edmonton Oilers' forward Connor McDavid was named the best player of the playoffs. This is the first time since 2003 that the Conn Smythe Trophy was awarded to a player from the losing team in the final.
