2023 Stanley Cup Western Conference Final Continues Saturday in a Primetime Game 5 Matchup 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC and ESPN+

Quest for the Stanley Cup Docuseries Continues May 26 on ESPN+

The 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs presented by GEICO continue with Game 5 of the Western Conference Final on Saturday, May 27, on ABC and ESPN+, featuring the Vegas Golden Knights at Dallas Stars during primetime at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Narrowly avoiding a sweep in the West, the Stars’  Jason Robertson and Joe Pavelski helped keep the season alive with a power play overtime-winning goal, bringing the series to a 3-1 Vegas lead. Robertson netted two of Dallas’ three goals, marking his first career multigoal playoff game. Goaltender Jake Oettinger bounced back on Thursday night with 37 saves despite the efforts of Golden Knights’ Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson who each scored a goal. The Golden Knights will aim to close out the series on Saturday and punch their ticket to the Stanley Cup Final.

ESPN’s NHL-focused studio show, The Point, will be presented throughout the Western Conference Final as games become necessary. New episodes of In The Crease stream exclusively on ESPN+ each game day, following the last game of the day, with in-depth analysis, interviews and highlights. Additionally, all Stanley Cup Playoff games are available for on-demand replay on ESPN+ within 24 hours of each game’s completion.
