The Edmonton Oilers are on the brink of losing their chance at the Stanley Cup against the Florida Panthers tonight, largely thanks to Stuart Skinner.

In these playoffs, Stuart Skinner has shown competence as the Edmonton Oilers' goaltender. However, it's been the electrifying offense led by Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Zach Hyman, and the puck-moving defenseman Evan Bouchard that's propelled them to victories.
Stuart Skinner, despite his efforts, finds himself overshadowed by Sergei Bobrovsky, who has been incredible. Peel didn't hold back on social media, critiquing Skinner's recent performance:
I'm not blaming Stuart Skinner but this is the Stanley Cup Final. 4 goals on 19 shots is not good enough! #LetsGoOilers #TimeToHunt

Tim Peel has been outspoken throughout these playoffs and he further questioned if the Dallas Stars might have been better against the Florida Panthers:
Looks like that delayed flight really hurt the #TimeToHunt Must have been rough being delayed eating shrimp and steak with a glass of 🍷 What a disappointing SCFinal! Would #TexasHockey have given the Cats a better challenge? This is a team that could quite easily repeat next year! #LetsGoOilers

The Edmonton Oilers depend on their offense, notably McDavid and Draisaitl, but that strategy has backfired as they struggle to find the net against the Florida Panthers defense.
As the series progresses, the Oilers' defensive lapses and Skinner's inconsistent play have become more glaring. In contrast, Bobrovsky's goaltending has been a fortress for the Panthers, highlighting the gap between the two teams' performances in the net.
While the Edmonton offense has been their strength, their issues in the finals have left Stuart Skinner all alone.
Will the Oilers make it out and force a comeback, or will the Florida Panthers seize their moment and close out the series?
