Result: Loss
#29/30 ASA PLAY ON 8* UNDER 5.5 Goals - Vegas Golden Knights at Dallas Stars, Monday at 8:05 PM ET - As mentioned heading into Saturday's game that snuck over the total, in the East and West finals combined, there had been 8 games so far and only 2 of the 8 had totaled more than 5 goals. The Hurricanes/Panthers series is wrapped up and only the final game of that went over the total. As for series the only one that went over the total, before Saturday's surprising Game 5 result, was Game 1 of this series which was 1-1 going to the 3rd and then got crazy including a late goal tie the game at 3-3 and force a 4-3 final in OT. The point is that, entering Saturday, we could have easily been talking about all unders in these West finals and even in the East Finals it took a late goal to send that one to OT and going over the total. We think we'll see another tight battle here. Down 3-2 and back on home ice, the Stars will turn to defense and staunch netminding to look to even up the series at 3 games apiece. Dallas has allowed only 18 goals in their 10 wins this post-season. Vegas has allowed 24 goals in their 11 wins this season. So you can see why a 2-1 type game or 3-2 type game at the most should be in the offing here. Under is our play here.
