Vegas Golden Knights’ James Neal (18), Deryk Engelland (5), goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury (29) and the rest of the team celebrate after defeating the Winnipeg Jets during NHL Western Conference Finals, game 5, in Winnipeg, Sunday, May 20, 2018.

Monday, May 21, 2018 | 8:45 p.m.

The NHL announced the schedule for the Stanley Cup Final Monday night. The Golden Knights know when they‘ll be playing, they just don‘t know where or whom it will be against.

They‘ll be facing yet another long layoff between series, as Game 1 is scheduled for Monday, May 28, eight days removed from the Golden Knights‘ Game 5 victory in Winnipeg.

The Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning will face off in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final on Wednesday night. If the Capitals win, the Golden Knights will host the first two games at T-Mobile Arena, but if the Lightning prevails, the Golden Knights will start on the road.
