Who wins Stanley Cup Final Game 4? Keys for Panthers, Knights - ESPN
The 2023 Stanley Cup Final looked to be slipping away from the Florida Panthers after the team lost Games 1 and 2 by a 12-4 margin in aggregate to the Vegas Golden Knights.
Heading into Game 3, Panthers star Matthew Tkachuk commented that the Panthers couldn't "make it a series" unless they won that night. Tkachuk backed up his talk with a game-tying goal in the closing minutes of the third period to send the game to overtime, where the Panthers continued their undefeated extra-time streak in the 2023 playoffs with a 3-2 win.
With Game 4 on the docket tonight (8 p.m. ET, TNT), will Vegas return home with a 3-1 series lead? Or will Florida tie things up -- perhaps with another shower of plastic rats hitting the ice? Kristen Shilton and Greg Wyshynski serve up the four keys to victory for each club heading into this pivotal showdown.
Note: Shilton identified the keys for the Knights, while Wyshynski profiled the Panthers.
Put the power in power play
Coach Paul Maurice doesn't buy the premise that his team hasn't score a power-play goal in the Stanley Cup Final.
