The 1984–85 Edmonton Oilers season was the Oilers' 6th season in the NHL, and they were coming off a Stanley Cup championship in 1983–84. Edmonton would win their fourth-straight Smythe Division title, and repeat as Stanley Cup champions.
The 1985 Stanley Cup Finals was played between the defending champion Edmonton Oilers in their third-straight Finals appearance and the Philadelphia Flyers. The Oilers would win the best-of-seven series four games to one, to win their second Stanley Cup. It was also the sixth straight Finals of post 1967 expansion teams. As of 2013, this is also the last time that a team, defending champion or finalist, would appear in the finals for the third straight season. This would be the third of eight consecutive Finals contested by a team from Alberta (Oilers x 6, Calgary Flames x 2), and the second of five consecutive Finals to end with the Cup presentation on Alberta ice (Oilers x 4, Montreal Canadiens x 1).
