Sunday, January 26, 2024 against the Florida Panthers

The defending Stanley Cup champions are headed to T-Mobile Arena on January 26. Fans are quite familiar with these Panthers. This game will be a throwback to the 2023 Stanley Cup Final when the Golden Knights soundly defeated Florida in five games. These two will battle it out once again, facing off in Las Vegas.

Like Vegas, Florida has dealt with a wave of players leaving via free agency. That includes Kevin Stenlund (who signed with the Utah Hockey Club) and Vladimir Tarasenko. However, one player who's returning to the fold is Sam Reinhart, who scored 57 goals last season. They're looking to bring another Stanley Cup to South Florida, where they might encounter Vegas once again.

Matchups against the defending champions are always exciting, for they bring back the bulk of their team. However, the Panthers might be slightly different this season, with an exodus of players heading to different places. Still, such matchups are always exciting for fans to watch, with the 2023 Stanley Cup Final rematch being no different.
