Matthew Tkachuk's teammate gave up on a play that lead to the Florida Panthers losing.

Matthew Tkachuk saved the Panthers from going down 5-3 by saving an empty net goal, then teammate Oliver Ekman-Larrson quit on the play leading to Connor McDavid scoring on an empty net.
The Panthers were buzzing late in the game looking to tie the game up as it was 4-3 with under a minute left when a puck was dumped out of the Oilers zone and was heading for the empty net.
Matthew Tkachuk hustled back and ended up saving a goal giving the Panthers another chance at scoring a goal to tie it up, but OEL gave up on the play and lead to McDavid scoring an empty net goal to seal the deal.
The game could have had a different outcome if Ekman-Larrson didn't completely give up on the play, the Panthers could've possibly tied it up, but that just goes to show playing in the Finals it takes a full team effort.
Edmonton is going back to home ice for game 6 after coming back from a 3-0 series deficit.
