"Beating a dead Horse" "Bye bye Conn Smythe": Top 5 funny memes after Edmonton Oilers thrash Florida Panthers 8-1 in Game 4 win

NHL: Stanley Cup Final-Florida Panthers at Edmonton Oilers
Top 5 funny memes that surfaced after Edmonton Oilers' Game 4 win against Panthers

The Edmonton Oilers have turned the prediction slightly in their favor after securing an 8-1 win over the Florida Panthers. This happened after it looked like Florida would sweep the Oilers in Game 4 to win their first Stanley Cup Championship.

Fans from both sides have been trolling one another with memes. Here are five of the best:

#1. "$1 million dollars muwahaha"

#2. "How it really looks after game 4"

#3. "Beating a dead horse"

#4. "Bye bye conn smythe"

#5. "Gotta win four bob"

The fate was on the Edmonton Oilers' side in Game 4. Florida had secured three consecutive wins in the Stanley Cup Final series. They started with a shutout by Panthers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky and defeated the Oilers 3-0. Edmonton outshot the Panthers 32-18 but were left goalless.

In Game 2, the Panthers once again secured a 4-1 win. Everyone was praising Bobrovsky for denying the Oilers again. In Game 3, Bobrovsky's magic faded a bit with two third-period goals by the Oilers, but the Panthers won 4-3.

By Game 4, the Edmonton Oilers had figured out how to bypass the Panthers goalie. They pulled off a massive win with a seven-goal difference.

Connor McDavid sets assist record as Edmonton Oilers force Game 5

In Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, Connor McDavid led the Edmonton Oilers to an 8-1 win at Rogers Place. He scored once and assisted three times. McDavid now has 32 playoff assists in 2024, breaking Wayne Gretzky's record of 31 from 1988. The win means there will be a Game 5 in Florida where Edmonton needs another win to force Game 6 at home.

This was only the third time in history that a team facing elimination in the final scored at least eight goals to stay alive. The Toronto Maple Leafs did it in 1942, and the Chicago Black Hawks in 1973. The Oilers are looking to replicate the Maple Leafs' historic comeback from being down 3-0 to win the cup.

“It's just one win, that's all it is,” McDavid said after the Game 4 win. “It doesn't matter if you score eight or you score one, it's just one win. We've got to go to Florida, do a job and drag them back to Alberta." (via NHL.com)

Florida goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky will aim to bounce back after Edmonton's strong performance while McDavid hopes to keep scoring. Florida could win the Stanley Cup on Tuesday, but Edmonton is determined to bring it back home.
