Two teams begin their quest for their very first Stanley Cup championship on Monday, May 28 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC: Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals face off against a team that was not in existence just twelve months prior — the expansion Vegas Golden Knights.

Pre-game coverage begins at 6 p.m. ET on NBCSN with a two-hour edition of NHL Live.

Six-time Emmy Award-winner Mike “Doc” Emrick (play-by-play), U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame member Eddie Olczyk (analyst), and Emmy Award-winner Pierre McGuire (‘Inside-the-Glass analyst) will call the 2018 Stanley Cup Final – their 12th consecutive Stanley Cup Final as a broadcast team.

Host Liam McHugh will anchor pre-game, intermission and studio coverage on-site throughout the series, alongside analysts and former players Mike Milbury and Keith Jones. In addition, Kathryn Tappen and Paul Burmeister will host coverage from outside sets in Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas, alongside analysts and former players Jeremy Roenick, Brian Boucher, and Anson Carter.

Kenny Albert, Joe Micheletti, Ray Ferraro, and Steve Goldstein will handle the Stanley Cup Final radio announcing duties for Westwood One and NBC Sports Radio stations.
