Because both the Stars and Golden Knights finished with a higher regular-season point total than the Panthers, the eventual winner of the Western Conference Final will host Games 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.
If the Golden Knights win the Western Conference Final in five games, Game 1 of the 2023 Stanley Cup Final will be on Wednesday, May 31. If the Western Conference Final is decided in six or seven games, Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final will be on Saturday, June 3.
The full schedule for both scenarios can be found below.
All games will be on Sportsnet and CBC beginning at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. A 30-minute Hockey Central will lead in on Sportsnet at 7:30 p.m. ET before every game.
