Tonight Lord Stanley’s Cup, the most famous trophy in professional sports, will be awarded after the first Stanley Cup Finals Game 7 since 2011. The recipient will be either the hated Boston Bruins or the St. Louis Blues (a.k.a. Not The Bruins). Founded in 1969, the Blues are the oldest NHL franchise to have never won the Stanley Cup championship, having appeared in three final series before 2019, only to be swept each time. The 2019 NHL Playoffs have been going on since April 10, and it all comes down to tonight.
Want to watch? Here’s how.
How can I watch the Stanley Cup Finals Game 7?
The Stanley Cup Finals, including tonight’s Game 7, are broadcast live on NBC.
If you don’t have a pay TV subscription, you can livestream the games with a live-TV streaming service that carries NBC. All of the services listed below carry a live, local feed of NBC, but not all of them necessarily carry it in your area. See the information on each service below for details.
Other stuff to know about live TV streaming services:
Sling TV ($25)
Sling TV’s $25-a-month Blue package includes NBC in select cities. The good news is that Sling’s Blue plan is currently discounted to $15 a month for the first three months.
The bad news is the list of select cities is pretty small. You can only watch NBC (and thus Game 7 of the Finals) live via Sling TV if you live in the New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston, Washington, DC, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Hartford/New Haven, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Los Angeles, San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose or San Diego market.
