The road to the Stanley Cup finals is a long and winding one – starting this year on April 12 and lasting until mid-June.
But this is a special year for the National Hockey League – its 100th anniversary year – so while you decide which games to travel to by a Las Vegas private jet charter, you can also ride the wave of excitement by visiting the NHL Centennial Truck Tour.
Featuring interactive video content, exclusive memorabilia, a huge video screen for viewing parties and a pop-up synthetic rink for youth hockey games and clinics, the tour is making its way across the United States, with stops scheduled on June 2 and 3 in Buffalo and June 23 and 24 in Chicago. Other dates will be added to the schedule as soon as they're settled.
Extend the excitement of the Stanley Cup – and let Cirrus Aviation whisk you to where you want to go, even on short notice, before the final puck falls.
Follow the icy road to the Stanley Cup
The NHL's regular season came to a close on April 9. After the winners of the eastern and western conferences are crowned, the two remaining teams will compete in a best-of-seven series for the Stanley Cup, the oldest sports trophy in North America.
Like many fans, you may be expecting the Pittsburgh Penguins to stage a repeat of their 2016 championship play. But then, consider the surprising fate of the Chicago Blackhawks, who were largely viewed as the best team in the western conference this year and were considered a cinch to return to the finals and possibly reclaim the Stanley Cup, which they last won in 2015. Their disappointing play means they will be staying home this year.
Will the Nashville Predators upset the Anaheim Ducks to make their Stanley Cup debut? Or will the Ottawa Senators dethrone the reigning champs Pittsburgh Penguins?
More surprises may be in store for NHL fans -- not the least of which will be the location of the final games since they are played at the winning teams' arenas.
Centennial truck teems with activities

- A virtual reality experience that allows fans to feel cool air on their skin and their seat rumble as they “duel” on ice.
- A pop-up ball hockey rink featuring programmed games and clinics.
- The exalted Stanley Cup, which stands ready for fan photographs.
