2024 NHL Stanley Cup Final bracket, schedule: Oilers defeat Stars in Game 6 to reach first final in 18 years

The Edmonton Oilers are in the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 18 years. With a mix of star players playing like stars and solid goaltending, they defeated the Dallas Stars, 2-1, Sunday night to win Game 6 of the Western Conference Final.

Connor McDavid set the tone early, dangling his way around Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen on a power play goal to give the Oilers a 1-0 lead. Edmonton’s power play struck again in the first period when McDavid found Zach Hyman all alone in the slot, and Hyman doubled his team’s lead with a quick snapshot.

Ever since tying the series at 2-2, the Oilers finally leveraged their special teams edge to tilt things in their favor. Edmonton’s power play scored a pair of goals in both Games 5 and 6, and the penalty kill completely stifled the Dallas power play. The Stars failed to score on a single one of their 14 power play opportunities, and they went 0 for 3 with the man advantage in Game 6.

Stuart Skinner stopped 34 of 35 shots against him in the series-clinching win, and he answered a lot of questions after a shaky second round. When this high-octane Oilers roster gets solid goaltending, there are nearly impossible to beat.

The Oilers will now take on the Florida Panthers in the Stanley Cup Final, and that series gets underway in South Florida on Saturday night.
