It wasn't the end that Edmonton Oilers fans were hoping for as the team lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final last night against the Florida Panthers.

The Royal Canadian Legion in Strathmore held a special viewing party last night.

Dave Haines, the first vice president of the organization says despite the loss it was a great event as over 50 people showed up to watch the game.

"Even the other day when it was Game 6, I think we had 24 people."

Edmonton's cup drought has now extended to 34 years.

Haines is a Montreal Canadians fan and knows the struggle of not seeing his team take home Lord Stanley. The Habs were the last Canadian team to bring home the Stanley Cup way back in 1993.

"If it was Montreal I'd be a little happier, but they're not ready for a Stanley Cup quite yet."

Haines says he wants residents to know that the legion is open to the public.

"Anybody can come in to take part in our big screen TV."

Trevor Weal, an Oilers superfan from Strathmore made a post on Facebook congratulating his team for the great season despite the loss.

"McMullet would like to thank and congratulate this year's Edmonton Oilers for an amazing season!! It was filled with ups and downs, but you worked hard and made an entire country proud! It’s been an amazing ride and I’ve got to meet some amazing people along and I can’t wait to follow along next year!!"

It wasn't all disappointment for the Oilers as the team still took home some hardware. Captain Connor McDavid was the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy for most valuable player during the playoffs.
