ESPN and ESPN+ will air Friday’s matchup between the Dallas Stars and Vegas Golden Knights in Game 1 in the Western Conference Final of the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The puck is set to drop at 8:30 p.m. ET at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dallas enters the West final coming off a grueling seven-game series with the Seattle Kraken. Up late in Game 7, a Wyatt Johnston goal in the third period effectively shut the door and allowed for the Stars to clinch the series with a 2-1 victory. This is Dallas’ first conference final appearance since 2019.

Vegas heads into this series fresh off of taking out the Edmonton Oilers in six games. Down 2-1 in Game 6, the Golden Knights piled on three goals in the second period and eventually came away with a 5-2 victory to advance. This is already Vegas’ fourth conference finals appearance in six years of its existence.
