Edmonton Oilers Coach Throws Shade At Buffalo Bills When Asked About Stanley Cup Final Experience

The Buffalo Bills got some shade thrown their way during Edmonton Oilers head coach Kris Knoblauch’s press conference ahead of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Speaking with reporters, Knoblauch was asked about how it felt for the team to be in the Final against a Florida Panthers team with a lot more experience than his Oilers group. That’s why the Oilers head coach brought up the fact that the Super Bowl experience that the Bills had did them no good.

“You can ask the Buffalo Bills how important Super Bowl experience is,” Knoblauch said.

The Buffalo Bills infamously lost four straight Super Bowls between 1990 and 1993, with their most heartbreaking loss coming on a missed field goal in Super Bowl XXV against the New York Giants. They would lose to the Washington Redskins the following year and back-to-back to the Dallas Cowboys the years after that.


Buffalo have not been to the Super Bowl since and have never won one.

The Oilers, on the other hand, have a more storied history, having won five Stanley Cups between 1984 and 1990 and reaching two more since then.
