Edmonton Oilers fans didn’t get the ending they wanted Saturday night against the Avalanche, but the crowd sure did love seeing Ryan Whitney and Oilers icon Ben Stelter appear on the jumbotron.

Ryan Whitney of Spittin Chiclets was seen flat-out chugging a bottle of Pink Whitney, which the crowd went absolutely gaga over.

Stelter, who has a type of brain cancer known as glioblastoma and has become an absolute fixture for the city and the Oilers, was also shown on the jumbotron along with his family.

Rogers Place Arena absolutely erupted with cheers for six-year-old Ben, receiving a standing ovation.

The Oilers fell to the Avalanche 4-2 in Game 3 on Saturday night, and the Oilers are now on the brink of elimination.

Game 4 is Monday night at Rogers Place Arena.
