Entering Oilers vs Panthers Game 1, the Florida Panthers have held the upper hand when these teams have met this season. The Panthers went 2-0 against the Oilers during the 2023-24 regular season. In those two games, the Panthers outscored the Oilers by a combined score of 10-4. On Saturday, the Panthers will look to earn another win over Edmonton to set the tone for this best-of-seven series.

For the Panthers, their defense will once again be the key to their success in this contest. Florida's defense has been so aggressive throughout the playoffs, using the forecheck to prevent opponents from consistently working the puck into the Florida defensive zone. They will need to have success with that strategy again in this game to prevent Connor McDavid and the lethal Oilers offense from getting into a rhythm and threatening the goal of the Panthers.

Our best bet for Oilers vs Panthers Game 1 is for the Florida Panthers to pick up a win at home to take a 1-0 series lead. While the Oilers are the sentimental pick to win this series given Canada's recent history in the Stanley Cup Final, the defense of the Panthers will control this matchup as they have so many throughout the playoffs. We will take the home favorites to go up 1-0 in this series when the final buzzer sounds on Saturday night.
