The Dallas Stars trailed the series 2-0 after back to back home losses. The top seed in the West has now rattled off three wins in a row, and are a win away from advancing. Dallas is the top seed after their 52-21-9 regular season record.

For the Vegas Golden Knights, they are the defending Stanley Cup Champions. Vegas won the first two games on the road, and it looked like they could be a threat to repeat.

Dallas, in the losses in Game 1 and 2, scored just 2 goals per game. In the three wins since, they are up to 3.3 goals per game. If the Stars can get 3 goals, they have a great chance of winning this game. The Dallas defense is one of the most elite in all of the National Hockey League.

In fact, the Stars allowed 2.83 goals per game, which was Top 8 during the regular season. The offense was one of the best in the league, at more than 3.5 per game. The top scorers for the Stars in the regular season were Jason Robertson, Joe Pavelski and Matt Duchene. Robertson has been strong in the postseason with 3 goals and 2 assists.

The goaltender situation for Dallas is Jake Oettinger. Oettinger has played in all five games so far. He will likely be the only netminder the entire postseason for Dallas. During the regular season, he won 35 games for the Stars. In the postseason, he has two goals in four straight games.

Vegas has a trio of guys that they rely on, offensively. Jonathan Marchessault, Jack Eichel and William Karlsson have got to lead this offense. Marchessault has 2 goals and 2 assists in the postseason, while Eichel has recorded points in each of the first five games. Karlsson is the one that needs to get going, he has yet to record a point. 

In the 3-2 loss on Wednesday, Mark Stone got the party started with the first goal of the game. William Carrier added a goal later in the game. Defensively, the Golden Knights used ADin Hill between the pipes. It was his first start of the postseason. Now many are wondering if it will be Hill or back to Logan Thompson for Game 6.

Vegas scored 3.21 goals per game and allowed 2.96 in the regular season. The Golden Knights struggled down the stretch of the season. Vegas lost their regular season finale to Anaheim which meant a trip to Dallas for the series, instead of to Vancouver.

Dallas Takes out Vegas

The Vegas Golden Knights seem to be cooked. The Stars took all the life out of them with their back to back wins in Games 3 and 4. Sure, game 5 was a close one, but Dallas has taken over as the better team in this series. No upset alert here.

Dallas completes the four in a row, and wins this first round series. Our bet for this game is the Dallas Stars -115 over the Vegas Golden Knights. Enjoy the game and best of luck!
