The Western Conference finals continue on Tuesday, with the Vegas Golden Knights looking to press home their dominant start to the series. Vegas currently boasts a 2-0 series advantage, after winning each of their two home games to start the series.
They were made to work hard to maintain that advantage on Sunday evening, as they eventually picked up a 3-2 win over the Stars following overtime. Mark Stone, Chandler Stephenson, and Jonathan Marchessault all scored a goal each, while all three stars also ended the night with assists.
Meanwhile, this will be a must-win game for the Stars, as their Stanley Cup hopes could be effectively ended if they are beaten in game three. The Stars will have the home advantage for the first time in the series this week, and they will be hoping to recover following an overtime loss in game two of the series over the weekend.
The Stars scored their first goal in the opening period, before they went ahead in the second. Miro Heiskanen scored for the Stars, while Jason Robertson also found the net for Dallas. Goalie Jake Oettinger ended the night having made 21 saves from 24 shots to average .875.
This is a crucial game in the series for the Stars, as they must claim victory to keep alive any hope of reaching the next round. It will be a tough game at the American Airlines Center, but we will be siding with Dallas to claim victory.
