The Vegas Golden Knights are closing in on a return to the Stanley Cup finals. They previously reached the showpiece event, before losing being beaten. Therefore, they are still chasing a first Stanley Cup success, and there is every reason to suggest that it could come this term.
Vegas moved into a healthy 3-0 series advantage in the Western Conference finals on Tuesday evening, as they landed a routine 4-0 win in Dallas over the Stars. Vegas started the quicker of the two teams, as they scored three times in the opening period.
The dominance only continued in the second period, with the Golden Knights adding a fourth goal. Ivan Barbashev ended the night with a goal and two assists, while further efforts in the success for the Golden Knights were scored by William Carrier, Jonathan Marchessault, and Alex Pietrangelo. Adin Hill also enjoyed a solid night in the Vegas goal, making 34 saves.
It was a disappointing night for the Stars, as they had no answer for the vibrant attacking play of the Golden Knights. Jake Oettinger made just two saves before being replaced in the opening period. Scott Wedgewood enjoyed a slightly better outing, as he made ten saves from eleven shots faced.
The writing appears to be on the wall for the Stars, and we find it incredibly challenging to see them getting a foothold in this series. Therefore, the preference is for the Golden Knights to secure their spot in the Stanley Cup finals on Thursday.
