The dates and times for the 2019 Stanley Cup final are set.

The first game will take place on Monday, May 27 in Boston, the National Hockey League announced Friday. All of the games will start at 8:00 p.m. ET.

The Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins will have home-ice advantage for Games 1, 2 and, if necessary, Games 5 and 7. With the series sweep of the Eastern Conference final complete on May 16, the Bruins will have over a week of rest before the final leg of the NHL Playoffs begins.

Boston will face off against the Western Conference champion — either the San Jose Sharks or the St. Louis Blues.

Sportsnet and CBC will have full coverage of all the action.
