NBCSN’s coverage of the 2021 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs continues with Monday’s Game 1 between the Montreal Canadiens and Vegas Golden Knights. Canadiens-Golden Knights stream coverage begins at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.
This year’s unique playoff format has pitted one of the NHL’s oldest and most storied franchises against its newest one (at least until next season) in the Stanley Cup Semifinals.
Despite Montreal’s past, it’s the Golden Knights who have been a mainstay in the Stanley Cup Playoffs recently. Since Vegas joined the league in 2017, they have made the playoffs every season, this being their third trip to the semifinal round. They are the third team in NHL history to reach the semifinals in three of their first four seasons (Rangers and Blues).
The Canadiens trailed the Maple Leafs 3-1 in their First Round series but won three straight to advance to the Second Round. They went on to sweep the Jets, and so they carry a seven-game winning streak into this matchup. As the No. 2 seed in the West, it took Vegas seven games to dispatch the third-seeded Wild. The Golden Knights then fell behind 2-0 in their Second Round against Colorado, but won four straight to advance, meaning they too carry a significant winning streak into this round.
Vegas forward Max Pacioretty has a long history with this year’s semifinal opponent. Pacioretty was drafted 22nd overall in the 2007 Draft by the Canadiens. He spent his first 10 seasons in Montreal, captaining the team in his final three seasons there from 2015-18.
