The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Dallas Stars will face off in the Stanley Cup Final with Lord Stanley on the line in the NHL Bubble from Edmonton.

The Tampa Bay Lightning knocked off the New York Islanders in six games, while the Dallas Stars turned the Vegas Golden Knights aside in just five. Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov of the Bolts are tied for the lead in points during the 2020 Playoffs with 25 each, while defenceman Miro Heiskanen leads all Stars with 22.

Her are the opening odds on the Stanley Cup winner from DraftKings Sportsbook:
Tampa Bay Lightning -180
Dallas Stars +150

There is one unusual part of the schedule in this series, as Game 5 will be on less than a 24-hour turnaround if necessary. You’ll usually see at least one off day between the overwhelming majority of NHL playoff games, but the bubble changes everything. And it will make for a very interesting battle as the exhaustion of playoff hockey and depth could be a factor.

Here are the game times and TV schedule for the 2020 Stanley Cup Final. All games will be available via live online stream at NBCSports.com/live.
