Oilers meet with former teammate who returned from 0-3 series

In a bid to stage an unprecedented comeback in the Stanley Cup finals, the Edmonton Oilers have turned to wisdom from an old friend and former teammate, Duncan Keith.

The seasoned veteran, known for his critical role in the Chicago Blackhawks' near-reversal from a 3-0 deficit in the 2011 playoffs, recently visited the Oilers' locker room to share his invaluable experiences.
Knoblauch shares that Duncan Keith was around the Oilers dressing room yesterday.

Nothing formal. Says Keith was sharing his experience being down 3-0 in 2011 with some.

Chicago forced a Game 7.

In a casual yet impactful session, Keith recounted his journey with the Blackhawks, who rallied to force a Game 7 against the Vancouver Canucks. Although they did not clinch the series, the lessons learned during that intense playoff run remain priceless. Edmonton's coach, Knoblauch, highlighted this interaction in today's press briefing, noting the informal but profound nature of Keith's visit.
Keith, a three-time Stanley Cup champion, ended his illustrious 16-season career with the Blackhawks, spending his final season with Edmonton. Despite a challenging last season, Keith's legacy as a clutch performer in the playoffs remains undisputed.
The Oilers, led by superstar Connor McDavid, face a daunting task. McDavid, with only one point so far in the series, and his team are up against formidable opposition in goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. With the odds stacked against them—MoneyPuck rates their chances at a mere 6.6%—the Oilers are at a pivotal moment.
Tonight's game at Rogers Place is not just another match; it's potentially the last stand for the Oilers this season. As they face off against the Panthers, who are eager to secure the championship, Edmonton must harness every ounce of skill and spirit to prevent Matthew Tkachuk from lifting the Stanley Cup on their home ice.
For the Oilers, and perhaps for McDavid, this game could redefine their legacies. Inspired by Duncan Keith's words and driven by the urgency of their situation, tonight's effort needs to be their most formidable yet.
