The Stanley Cup Final is set. The New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings will begin battling for hockey's most hallowed trophy on Wednesday, June 4 in Los Angeles.

It's only the third time the Rangers and Kings have ever met in the NHL Playoffs, and the first series between the two since 1981. You can bet that travel will be a big talking point, as both teams will have to travel more than 2,700 miles across the country multiple times as the series progresses.

The Rangers will be playing with a little more rest than their opponents after claiming the Eastern Conference title by eliminating Montreal in Game 6 on Thursday night. The Kings wrapped up their series against Chicago with a 5-4 overtime win in Game 7 on Sunday.

Here's the full series schedule with game times and TV info:
