The 2016-17 season is mercifully almost over and will finish with either the Nashville Predators or the Pittsburgh Penguins as champions.
For Caps fans, that means that either former DC draft pick Filip Forsberg will raise the cup or the team’s biggest rival will win their third Stanley Cup of the Crosby and Malkin era.
If you’re masochist and want to watch this, the schedule is below.

The Stanley Cup Final begins on Monday, May 29, in Pittsburgh.
Because of their superior regular-season point total (Nashville was the 16 seed), the Pittsburgh Penguins will host Games One and Two of the best-of-seven Stanley Cup Final, as well as Games Five and Seven, if necessary.
The Western Conference champion Nashville Predators will host Games Three and Four, as well as Game Six, if necessary.
In the U.S., NBC will televise Games 1 and 4 and, if necessary, Games 5-7. NBCSN will broadcast Games 2 and 3.
Media Day will take place Sunday, May 28, at PPG Paints Arena.
