The Panthers won the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final, limiting the high-octane Oilers offense to just a single goal across both games. The series shifts to Edmonton for the next two games, where the Oilers can hope the home fans give captain Connor McDavid and the team a boost. 

The puck drops for Game 3 tonight at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT), and you can watch on either ABC or ESPN Plus. Here's everything you need to know to watch tonight and the rest of the Stanley Cup Final, with or without cable.
