The Florida Panthers are still looking for their first Stanley Cup

Not every team in the NHL has won a Stanley Cup. Although it has been a while, the Oilers have won a bunch. A team like Florida does not have that kind of history. 

This is Florida’s third time in the Final and second time in a row. Last year, they went on a magical run but were defeated by the Vegas Golden Knights in five games. 

Vegas was a team of destiny in a lot of ways and Florida just ran out of gas by the final series. It allowed them to come into this year focused and determined which they took full advantage of. 

If Florida gets it done there, they will forever be the first Stanley Cup Champions in the history of the franchise. That is a special notion to have. 

They have special players as well who deserve to be winners. At the end of the day, they are winners no matter what happens but they'd like to give the state of Florida another championship. Between them and the Tampa Bay Lightning, they've done a lot for the state.
