Stanley Cup Final schedule, how to watch Panthers-Golden Knights originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

There are 12 NHL franchises that have never won a Stanley Cup.

But soon, that number will shrink to 11.

The Florida Panthers will meet the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2023 Stanley Cup Final as both teams vie for their first championship.

This is the second Cup Final appearance for both Florida and Vegas. The Panthers’ first and only appearance came back in 1996 when they were swept by the Colorado Avalanche. The Knights, meanwhile, made the Cup Final in their inaugural 2017-18 season and fell to the Washington Capitals in five games.

So, will the Golden Knights or Panthers etch their name on Lord Stanley first? Here’s how to watch the series:
