The map below is based on geotagged X data from Sunday evening to now (when the matchup was set) tracking official fan hashtags in every state and the 10 Canadian provinces. For example #LetsGoOilers (Oilers) and #TimeToHunt (Panthers). Over 110,000 tweets were tracked and is courtesy of our friends at BetOnline.


As you can see from the map, it almost seems to be a "North" vs. "South" type of setup with all of Canada and much of the upper US rooting for the Oilers, while the southern US is rooting for the Panthers.

Edmonton has not won a Stanley Cup since 1990, and the Panthers have never won one. In addition, there is added interest in Edmonton (especially up north) as Canada has not won a Stanley Cup in 30 years (this is probably the only reason why Ontario, which is Toronto Maple Leafs territory, is rooting for the Oilers.


State and province breakdown:

Oilers: 22 states, 10 provinces (Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming)

Panthers:  28 states, 0 provinces (Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia)
