Dallas Just About Hanging in Their
The Dallas Stars dug deep last time out on the ice, winning 3-2 in yet another overtime victory of this series. This series has now produced OT in 3 of the first 4 games.
Dallas refused to lose that game and it was telling by the way they played hockey, especially from their star player Jason Robertson, who bagged himself two goals, had two blocked shots and ended the game with 11 shots on net.
Thirty-eight-year-old veteran Joe Pavelski stepped up with the winning goal in overtime to mark his 9th goal of this post-season.
Goaltender Jake Oettinger rebounded after having a horrific start to the series, allowing just 2 goals and saving 37 shots on net, with a 95% save percentage.
The Stars broke their overtime duck last time out having previously gone 0-4 in overtime this post-season, they now have an overtime victory under their belt and this could give them confidence to keep the series alive.

Goals Not Expected, But Be Cautious
Although our computer is predicting just five goals to be scored tonight and these two teams have been hitting the under in 80% of their previous ten games, we are weary to take the under total goal line tonight, as sooner or later these two teams are going to produce a 6+ goal game, and tonight could be the night.
Our computer predicts a 3-2 home win. We believe it could be more like 4-2 or even 4-3 tonight. Instead, we are looking to bet on the home team Vegas to wrap up the Conference with a victory tonight.
Eyes on the Prize
A win tonight would see the Vegas Golden Knights advance to their first Stanley Cup finals since their inaugural appearance in the league back in 2018. The Knights have their eyes on the prize tonight as they can wrap up the Western Conference in front of their home fans and our computer is predicting them to do just that with a 3-2 predicted victory to the home team.
We believe the Knights are an incredibly tough out, as tough as the Stars are. This Vegas team is tougher and more resilient. Having gone 6-1 in their previous seven at home and 28-11 revenging a loss this season, we are prepared to lay the juice on the Knights in this matchup.
In agreement with the AI computer pick we are backing the Golden Knights to wrap up the series tonight at -145 NHL betting odds.
