Whisky, rum and key lime pie: Smith and DeSantis place wager on Stanley Cup final

EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Danielle Smith and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis have made a friendly wager on the Stanley Cup final.

Smith says in a social media post that if the Florida Panthers win the hockey series, she'll send some Alberta-made whisky down to Florida.

DeSantis replies that if the Edmonton Oilers win, he'll send some Florida rum up to Alberta.

And, he says, he'll throw in a key lime pie, the official state pie.

The Oilers are looking to even the best-of-seven series Monday night in Florida.

The Panthers beat the Oilers 3-0 in Saturday's opening game.
