SUNRISE, Fla. - With tonight's 4-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes at FLA Live Arena, the Florida Panthers have advanced to the 2023 Stanley Cup Final, defeating the Hurricanes four games to none in the Eastern Conference Final. The Panthers return to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1996.

The Panthers downed three of the top four regular season teams in terms of points en route to the 2023 Stanley Cup Final. Florida first overcame a 3-1 series deficit in Round 1 to best the Presidents' Trophy winner Boston Bruins, who had earned the most single-season wins and points in NHL history. The Cats then defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in five games to advance to the franchise's first conference final appearance since 1996. In the Eastern Conference Final, the Cats bested the Carolina Hurricanes in the first four-game sweep in franchise history. The Panthers won 11 of 12 games after falling to Boston in Game 4 of Round 1, and were 6-0 in overtimes throughout the first three rounds.

Florida's series-clinching win over Carolina marked the third instance in the League's expansion era (since 1967-68) where the lowest-seeded team reached the Stanley Cup Final, following Montreal in 2021 and Nashville in 2017. The Panthers became the first club in NHL history to enter the postseason as the lowest-seeded team and sweep a best-of-seven series to clinch a berth in the Final.
