The Vegas Golden Knights will look to stay alive for the first time in the Stanley Cup Playoffs when they face the Dallas Stars.
For the first time the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Vegas Golden Knights are down 3-1 and have their backs against a wall. The Dallas Stars, like the Vancouver Canucks the round before, have done a good job at shutting down the offense while another hot goalie has flipped the script.
Anton Khudobin is the main reason the Stars are in this position and the Knights will have to find ways to beat him if they want to keep their hopes alive. We saw that in Game 4 when the Knights failed to score in the first period before Alec Martinez would open the scoring before Jamie Benn and Joe Pavelski responded for the Stars to give them the 2-1 victory.
This series has proved to be low scoring and the one thing Vegas seems to be doing is limiting the opposition shots and that was on full display last game as Dallas only registered 17 shots on goal in the entire game. The keys for tonight’s game are simple get as many shots on net as possible and continue to do the same on defense.
