The first-year Golden Knights will have home ice advantage in the series, giving them a leg up in trying to cement their status as the best expansion team ever. This is the second-ever trip to the Stanley Cup Final for the Captials, who last made it in 1998.
The first two games are in Vegas before shifting to Washington D.C. on Saturday, June 2.
