The 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs continue with Conference Final action as it’s now down to the final four.

In the East, the Tampa Bay Lightning were a popular pick to reach and/or win the Stanley Cup in pre-season predictions, while their opponent this series, the Washington Capitals finally defeated their longtime postseason rival Pittsburgh Penguins and reached their first conference final in 20 years.

The Western Conference Final features two of the unlikeliest teams to reach this point: the expansion Vegas Golden Knights and the Winnipeg Jets. Back in August 2017, the Jets (at 40-1 odds) — which missed last year’s NHL postseason — and the Golden Knights (200-1) — which did not yet have players, as of one year prior — were both considered long shots to win the Stanley Cup.

NBC and NBCSN are the NHL’s exclusive broadcast networks for the rest of the playoffs in the United States. In Canada, it’s SportsNet, CBC and OMNI.
