The Edmonton Oilers hope to pull off a historic feat that seemingly only happens once in a lifetime when they take on the Florida Panthers in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. The last team to rally from down 3-0 in the Stanley Cup Finals was the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1942 postseason.

Considering that only five teams have come back from down 2-0, the chances of this happening for the Oilers are rare. However, the job is far from done, as they still have to find a way to solve the Panthers for one more game.

Game 7 storylines

Connor McDavid had a chance to make history after his eight-point performance in Games 4 and 5. He sat five points behind Wayne Gretzky for first in scoring in a single postseason and looked poised to take over the record if the Oilers extended the series to seven games. It would've been a great story if McDavid had led the team to a historic Stanley Cup by breaking Gretzky's record. However, McDavid never had a point in Game 6. McDavid will be one of the greatest when he retires, but six points in the clinching Stanley Cup game is impossible even by his standards.

Sergei Bobrovsky was the front-runner to win the Conn Smythe Trophy after three games in this series. He led the Panthers to the brink of the Stanley Cup, but his game has gone downhill since that moment. Bobrovsky allowed 12 goals over his last three games and got the hook in Game 4 after just 24 minutes. Bobrovsky may still win the award with a heroic performance in Game 7, but it looks more likely that the winning captain will take it home. It also wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility that McDavid wins the trophy regardless after his eight-point performance in Games 4 and 5.

Regardless of scoring records and Conn Smythe Trophy voting, hockey fans must enjoy a Game 7 for the Stanley Cup Final. We don't get these moments often, and it's sure to be full of drama whichever way it falls.
