Evander Kane discusses the Stanley Cup Final

Evander Kane provided his perspective on playing in the Stanley Cup Final during the “Pardon My Take” podcast.

"The thing about our team is we just kind of take it game by game like it's any other game. And I don't envision Stanley Cup Final rattling us or getting us overly nervous to have an effect on our game, so you know that's one thing I really like about our group," Evander Kane remarked.

He was also asked about representing Canada and trying to win the first Stanley Cup for the country since 1993.

Kane acknowledged it had been a long drought but wasn't sure how much of Canada would be cheering for the Oilers over a fellow Canadian team.

"Yeah, I mean obviously Canada hasn't had a Stanley Cup in a long time, I think it was '93, I don't know how many Canadians are actually cheering for our team, you know we played Vancouver in the second round, Toronto as a couple of our teammates have mentioned," Kane said.

Ultimately, Kane emphasized the Oilers are focused on themselves and bringing the Cup back to Edmonton.

"But you know if that's what it's going to be we're more than happy to take that on, but uh at the end of the day we're worried about the Edmonton Oilers," he concluded.

Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals is on Saturday at Amerant Bank Arena.
