Ahead of the highly anticipated Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Explore Edmonton took a jab at the Florida Panthers by renting billboards near the Amerant Bank Arena.

The Florida Panthers faced a drastic turnaround in their playoff performance during the Stanley Cup Finals. After leading the series 3-0, their starting goalie Sergei Bobrovsky struggled, conceding 5 goals on just 17 shots. Since then, the Oilers have won every game, leveling the series and forcing a decisive Game 7.
"Bobrovsky gets the boot after giving up 5 goals on 17 shots 😬"

Despite Edmonton's impressive comeback, Explore Edmonton, responsible for the city's tourism initiatives, decided to rub salt in the Panthers' wounds. They rented billboards near Florida's Amerant Bank Arena to playfully taunt their rival team.
"Hey Panthers, enjoying the view? We brought a taste of the Great White North to the Sunshine State with our digital billboards. 🏒

We've heard about your tradition of tossing rats on the ice (interesting choice), but Edmonton is rat-free & we'd love to keep it that way! 🚫🐀"

While some may find this gesture controversial, the response to Edmonton's publicity stunt was largely met with amusement and approval. As the Florida Panthers prepare to play in Edmonton's territory tomorrow night, the Oilers' tactics have not gone unnoticed.
The Florida Panthers have one last opportunity to clinch the series tomorrow night. However, with Edmonton's bold actions, the Oilers are determined to bring the Stanley Cup back to Canada.
