Stanley Cup Final schedule released, will start June 4
The Stanley Cup Final has its dates before it has its teams. The Final will begin on Wednesday, June 4, and a potential Game 7 would be Wednesday, June 18
We still don't know who will be facing the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Final but we do know when the games will be played.
The NHL announced the dates for this year's Stanley Cup Final which will get underway on Wednesday, June 4, no matter what happens from here on out in the conference finals. If the series goes the distance, Game 7 would be held on Wednesday, June 18.
There are no game times yet, but here's what the schedule looks like. Plan accordingly:
Game 1: Wednesday, June 4 (at Blackhawks or Kings )
Game 2: Saturday, June 7 (at Blackhawks or Kings)
Game 3: Monday, June 9 (at New York Rangers)
Game 4: Wednesday, June 11 (at New York Rangers)
Game 5*: Friday, June 13 (at Blackhawks or Kings)
Game 6*: Monday, June 16 (at New York Rangers)
Game 7*: Wednesday, June 18 (at Blackhawks or Kings)
Interesting how the schedule skips an entire weekend by passing up playing on Saturday or Sunday but that's the cost of a little rest for potential cross-continent travel and getting a Game 7 on Wednesday night.
In terms of where these games will be played, the Western Conference winner will have home-ice advantage over the Rangers.
