Two teams are left to duke it out for the chance to lift one of the most iconic trophies in sports, the Stanley Cup. The only thing standing between the Tampa Bay Lightning and three consecutive championships is the Colorado Avalanche, one of the best hockey teams this year.

The Stanley Cup Final begins this week and the easiest and cheapest way to stream it is via ESPN Plus, which along with ABC is carrying every game live. The service costs $7 a month and also includes plenty of live sports like MLS soccer (until Apple's deal takes effect in 2023), baseball and golf. Some UFC matches are included as part of the subscription, with pay-per-view matches usually requiring an extra fee. It's also home to exclusive shows, such as Peyton's Places starring Peyton Manning, and the vast 30 for 30 library. 

Here's a step-by-step guide to signing up for ESPN Plus so you can watch every second of the Stanley Cup Final.

Step 1: Go to the ESPN Plus website
