UPDATE: The 2019 Stanley Cup Final came down to the St. Louis Blues vs. the Boston Bruins.

Every possible 2019 Stanley Cup Finals matchup is ripe for potential drama. The Washington Capitals, the 2018 Stanley Cup champions, are back in the mix, as are the Vegas Golden Knights, in the expansion franchise's second straight quest for the cup.

The top seeds are the perennially competitive Tampa Bay Lightning and the up-and-coming Calgary Flames, but a matchup of number 1 seeds might not necessarily make for the most exciting 2019 Stanley Cup Finals contest.

The San Jose Sharks have never won a title, while the classic New York Islanders francishe is back in serious contention.

So what two teams do you want to watch in the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals. What Stanley Cup Finals matchup would be most entertaining? Vote up your dream 2019 Stanley Cup Finals matchup, then head over and vote on which team will win the 2019 Stanley Cup.
