NHL Predictions

Vegas Golden Knights vs Dallas Stars

Series: Golden Knights 2-0 Stars

Tonight’s featured game of NHL predictions has the Western Conference Final shift to the Great State of Texas. The Stars are in an 0-2 hole and need a home victory in the worst way. Dallas suffered back-to-back losses for the first time in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Jake Oettinger will most likely get the start in goal. However, always check social media before locking in a daily fantasy starter. Roope Hintz continues to light it up in the post-season with 10 goals and 12 assists for 22 points. Jason Robertson is bounced back from a slow patch in the second round to be second in points. However, they’ll need some help from the supporting to cast to get back into the series.

Chandler Stephenson got the overtime-winner to give the Golden Knights a 2-0 series lead. Adin Hill has been a capable replacement since filling for Laurent Brossoit. Jack Eichel is enjoying his first Stanley Cup Playoffs and is tied with Mark Stone in points with 15. No one expected Eichel to play so well in his first post-season, but he’s doing so. Vegas has five players with double-digit points and is spreading around the goal-scoring. The Knights have staked their claim as being the best team left in the playoffs after the surprising happenings in the East. However, there’s plenty of series left to go.

Vegas has been solid, but Dallas is very good at home. The Stars find a way to get back into the series.

Prediction: Stars win 3-2.
