After looking like a literal brick wall through the first 3 games of the Stanley Cup Final, the Edmonton Oilers have found a chink in the armor of Florida Panthers goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky.

The Oilers would get to Bobrovsky early, taking a commanding 3-1 lead through the first 20 minutes of play in Game 4 on Saturday night, but it was the early onslaught in the second period that would force Panthers head coach Paul Maurice to pull Bobrovsky out of the game.

That onslaught would begin early after Oilers captain Connor McDavid beat Bobrovsky just a little over a minute into the period.

That would quickly be followed by a goal from Oilers defenseman Darnell Nurse that brought everyone in the building, including sister Sarah Nurse, to their feet.

Bobrovsky would quickly be pulled from the net following the Nurse goal, having coughed up 5 goals on just 17 shots from the Oilers.
