Panthers vs. Golden Knights: NHL Stanley Cup Final odds, Conn Smythe MVP odds, schedule

A sure thing heading into the NHL’s Stanley Cup Final is either the Florida Panthers or the Vegas Golden Knights will hoist Lord Stanley’s chalice for the first time.

The surprising Panthers – the third No. 8 seed to reach the Final – are playing for the Cup for the second time since joining the league in 1993. The Colorado Avalanche swept the Panthers in 1996.

The Golden Knights, a recent expansion addition to the NHL (joined in 2017), reached the Final in their inaugural season but lost in five games to the Washington Capitals.

Vegas is the top seed from the Western Conference with 111 points in the regular season, 19 more than Florida.

Game 2 is Monday night in Las Vegas. Game 7, if necessary, is set for June 19 in Las Vegas.


Golden Knights: -128 (bet $10 to win $17.81 total)

Florida is not a fluke after rallying from a 3-1 deficit in the first round to oust the Boston Bruins – the heavy favorite to win it all entering the postseason – then bumping the favored Toronto Maple Leafs in the conference semifinals in five games.

Vegas used a strong second half to charge into the playoffs.

The Golden Knights were 29-18-4 and on a four-game skid heading into the All-Star break.

Vegas won five in a row after the break en route to the Pacific Division title.

Heading into the season, Vegas (+2500) was a much longer shot to win the Cup than the Panthers (+900). Florida was at +11000 after falling behind Boston 3-1 in the first round.
