2024 NHL Stanley Cup Finals Props

NHL Stanley Cup Finals Props

After nearly two months of postseason play, we’ve whittled the field down to the bare minimum. What started with 16 teams pursuing Lord Stanley’s chalice has been narrowed to a pair of squads, both looking to claim the championship. The Edmonton Oilers, winners of the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl as the champions of the Western Conference, take on the Florida Panthers, winners of the Prince of Wales Trophy for the second consecutive year, lock up in the final best-of-seven series of the postseason. Edmonton seeks their first Stanley Cup since the 1989-90 season while Florida tries to earn the first title in franchise history, having fallen short in the 1995-96 and 2022-23 seasons.
