The Florida Panthers began this postseason as an underdog to even make it out of the first round and now enter the finals as Eastern Conference champs. Florida upset the Boston Bruins, the team with the best regular season record, to advance in seven games during the opening round. The Panthers went on to sweep a tough Carolina Hurricanes team with help from some clutch overtime play in the first two games of the series. Matthew Tkachuk has led the way as a physical presence on the ice and as a goal-scorer in big moments. Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has been outstanding in net with a .935 postseason save percentage, continuing his trend of showing up strong in the playoffs.
The Vegas Golden Knights were the best team in the Western Conference during the regular season, and have continued to be a powerful force throughout the playoffs. Jack Eichel leads the team in points, while Jonathan Marchessault is the top goal-scorer. Adin Hill took over as full-time goaltender after an injury to Laurent Brossoit early in the postseason, and has been solid for the Knights ever since. Vegas enters these finals with one of the best postseason road records, having gone 6-2 as visitors in these playoffs.
