Panthers penalty kill (Up): OK, technically this is also Bobrovsky because he was the star of Florida’s penalty kill. But full marks to the Panthers for going 3-for-3 against the Oilers' power play, however they managed it.

Darnell Nurse-Cody Ceci pairing (Down): The defensemen hadn’t been paired together since the Western Conference Second Round but were reunited for Game 1. It didn’t work out well, as the two were on the ice for the first two Panthers goals.

Oilers scoring chances (Up): Seriously, they were all over the puck, they had opportunities galore, and you were just waiting for them to capitalize on one or two of those juicy chances. It just didn’t happen because, yes, No. 72 for the Panthers.

Stuart Skinner (down): It’s only one game and the Oilers goaltender was stellar through the Western Conference Final, but he wasn’t tested much in Game 1 against the Panthers, allowing two goals on 17 shots.

Hello, Cup (Up): The Stanley Cup was brought onto the ice prior to Game 1. It was a reminder of when the NHL had the Cup on display in an empty Rogers Arena in Edmonton in the 2020 Final during the COVID-19 pandemic. Just a great way to kick off this Final.
