The Edmonton Oilers had an incredible Stanley Cup Final Game 4 victory over the Florida Panthers as they put eight goals past the Western Conference champions in an 8-1 win on Saturday. Canadian singer Shania Twain, who had a pre-game concert, also visited the Oilers after the game in the locker room.

The Grammy-winning Country music icon has been a familiar face in the playoffs. Her concert on Saturday drew a massive crowd outside Rogers Place.

Following the game, Shania Twain walked into the Edmonton locker room clapping for the team, who returned her gesture. She then made a full trip around the room and high-fived the full squad who were equally thrilled to meet the Canadian superstar.

Twain posted a collection of clips on her X/Twitter account on Saturday after the game. The first clip featured her high-fiving the full team, while the second was from her concert. The last two were videos of her experience attending the game in a full Rogers Place.

She captioned the post:

“What an electric atmosphere inside and outside of @RogersPlace last night! I had a blast performing for y’all and then getting to cheer on the boys - Okay, so you’re the @EdmontonOilers? that DOES impress me much!! 😍❤️”

The Canadian singer originally provided the opening tease for ESPN’s broadcast. As an Ontario native, Shania seemed very much at home supporting the Edmonton Oilers on the night.
