Who will come out on top and be crowned the NHL’s champion of the 2021-22 season? We will soon find out.

SCHEDULE: Bracket, dates, times, TV channels for every series

When does the Stanley Cup Final start?

The exact start date for the finals is not yet known. It will be determined by when the conference finals end.

The latest that the Rangers-Lightning series is scheduled to go would be Game 7 on Tuesday, June 14. It is presumed the finals would start two or three days after the conclusion of that series.

However, if the series ends before a seventh game is needed, the finals could start before then. Either way, it will be a mid-June start date.

What channel will the Stanley Cup Final be on?

ABC will broadcast all the Stanley Cup Final games through their partnership with ESPN.

They also will be available to stream through ESPN+ or through fuboTV.

The first three rounds of the playoffs were divided between TNT and ESPN, but ESPN holds the rights this year to the final series.

In Canada, the games will be split between Sportsnet and CBC. They are also available to be streamed on SN NOW.

Who is playing in the Stanley Cup Final?

As of now, one team that will be participating in the NHL’s biggest series of the year is known.

The Avs will be competing for a chance to lift the Cup after taking down the Oilers in the Western Conference Final. Colorado swept Edmonton in four games to advance to their first finals since 2001.

The winner from the Eastern Conference has yet to be determined. It will be one of the Rangers or the Lightning. New York currently has a 2-1 series lead with Game 4 set for June 7.

It would be the first time since 2014 that the Rangers make it to the finals. On the other side, the Lightning are aiming for a three-peat after going back-to-back in ’20 and ’21.
