This is an 8* on VEGAS

Vegas has really put itself behind the 8-ball, now needing to win three straight in order to make the Stanley Cup Finals. They have generally outplayed the Stars in this Western Conference Finals. However, they can’t seem to score when necessary. They’ve outshot Dallas for the series, including 73-43 the L2 games! But Stars goalie Anton Khudobin has picked the right time to play the best hockey of his career, posting a .944 save percentage for the series. Dallas is clearly playing “above its head” this postseason. It’s not just Khudobin either. The team has more 5+ goal games in the bubble than they did the entire regular season! The Golden Knights have done a solid job when it comes to limiting goals; they’ve given up just six in the four games. Now it’s time for Khudobin to regress, assuming Vegas can continue to pepper him with shots. They average 36.2 shots/game in the playoffs while allowing only 24.2. Dallas has been outshot and outscored in the postseason! This is just the 2nd time Vegas has lost two in a row since the restart. The 1st saw them bounce back to post a shutout in Game 7 vs. Vancouver when the season was on the line. Play on VEGAS
