Steve Zipay takes you inside the locker room, home and on the road, with the New York Rangers, and also writes about the NHL, off and on the ice.
The Stanley Cup Final Schedule: Teams TBA
The NHL has finalized its arena availability and television plans, so the SCF schedule is set. All we need are the two teams. The Rangers and Kings are one win each from the SCF beginning with two games at Staples Center.
But Chicago, which hosts Game 5 tonight, and Montreal, which should have arrived in New York City for Game 6 tomorrow, still have a say in the outcome.
Based on their regular season records, Chicago would have home-ice advantage against either the Rangers or Montreal. But if the Kings and Canadiens advance, then Games 1 and 2 would be at Bell Centre.
Game 1 Wednesday, June 4
Game 2 Saturday, June 7
Game 3 Monday, June 9
Game 4 Wednesday, June 11
Game 5* Friday, June 13
Game 6* Monday, June 16
Game 7* Wednesday, June 18
