The Florida Panthers and Vegas Golden Knights launch their 2023 Stanley Cup Finals series at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday (1am BST).
There will be a first-time winner of the Stanley Cup this year, with both sides desperate to etch their names onto the famous old trophy.
For both, this marks their second finals appearance. The Panthers lost in a four-game sweep to the Colorado Avalanche in 1996, while the Golden Knights were beaten in five by the Washington Capitals during their inaugural season 22 years later.

Florida Panthers vs Vegas Golden Knights prediction
After topping the Western Conference during the regular season, the Golden Knights have justified their status as number one seeds on reaching the Stanley Cup Finals.
Although, Vegas have had to work hard for it. After beginning the postseason by defeating the Winnipeg Jets in five games, they required six to get past the Edmonton Oilers and Dallas Stars in the Second Round and Western Conference Finals respectively.
Meanwhile, despite entering the playoffs as the Eastern Conference’s eighth seeds, the Panthers have continually defied the odds. First, they recovered from 3-1 down to beat the Boston Bruins – the Presidents’ Trophy winners – in Game 7 overtime, and have subsequently gone from strength to strength.
After eliminating the Toronto Maple Leafs in five games, Florida saw off the Carolina Hurricanes in a four-game sweep in the Eastern Conference Finals.
And though the Golden Knights have home advantage, the Panthers certainly have the stronger momentum of the two finalists heading into Game 1.
