The Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning will face off in the 2021 Stanley Cup Final. Game 1 is scheduled for Monday, June 28 with the puck dropping just after 8 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.

The Canadiens claimed their spot in what will be their 35th appearance in the championship round with a string of upsets. They had the 18th best record, but thanks to the realignment due to COVID-19, they earned one of the 16 playoff berths. They won their first round series over Toronto after coming back from a 3-1 deficit. They then steamrolled Winnipeg in the second round, sweeping them with ease. They clinched a berth in the Final when they beat Vegas in six games.

The defending champion Lightning claimed their spot in what will be their fourth appearance in the Final with a couple relatively easy series wins in the first two rounds and then a rough road in the Stanley Cup semifinals. They beat their in-state rival Florida in six games and then rolled Carolina in five games. The Islanders took them to seven games, but Tampa Bay pulled it out in the end.

Below is a full rundown of the Canadiens-Lightning series and how to watch it. The games are all available at NBCSports.com/live. All times listed are ET.
