What are the predictions for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final?

Here's what to know the winner-take-all game.

Game 7 is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET on Monday at Amerant Bank Arena in Sunrise, Florida.

Game 7 will be shown nationally on ABC in the United States. It will be shown on Sportsnet and CBC in Canada. It can be streamed on ESPN+ and Fubo.

Mike Brehm: Oilers 4, Panthers 2. I originally predicted the Panthers would win the series in seven games but in a more traditional manner, not having a 3-0 lead evaporate. The way it has happened doesn't give me confidence in Florida's ability to turn it around for one final game. The Panthers carried play late in Games 5 and 6 but only after falling behind. Perhaps if they can start Game 7 that way, they will win their first championship. But the Oilers have figured out the Panthers' forechecking scheme and goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, plus they're winning the special teams battle. McDavid will walk away with the Stanley Cup and the Conn Smythe Trophy.

Jace Evans: Oilers 3, Panthers 1. I picked the Oilers to win the Stanley Cup before the playoffs and I picked them to beat the Panthers in seven before this series – though admittedly, I didn’t expect them to reach Game 7 like this. Can they keep the momentum going? Skeptics will say the concept isn’t real, so it won’t be surprising if an excellent team like Florida finds a way to win on home ice. But there’s no denying the Oilers are playing better right now. Beyond having McDavid – who I expect to have a big Game 7 after a relatively quiet Game 6 by his standards – the Oilers’ biggest, and most surprising, advantage has come in goal. Stuart Skinner has thoroughly outplayed Bobrovsky during Edmonton's comeback, and if "Late Series Stu" shows up again, the Oilers just might complete the greatest comeback in the modern history of the NHL. 

Panthers' Bobrovsky (15-8, 2.38 goals-against average, .903 save percentage) vs. Oilers' Skinner (14-8, 2.46, .901)
