Game three of the Western Conference Finals is set for Tuesday night when the Vegas Golden Knights visit the Dallas Stars. If the first two games were any indication, this is going to be a long, tough, series. Below is my NHL pick for the Vegas Golden Knights vs Dallas Stars.

Vegas Golden Knights Are Going Streaking

It was not an easy task, but the Golden Knights were able to hold on to home ice advantage with two tough wins over the weekend. Vegas has now won four straight games, dating back to their second-round elimination of Edmonton, and the Golden Knights will like their chances heading into Dallas.

Game two was a fun one that got started early with a Dallas goal less than three minutes into the first period. Vegas tied the game up midway through the period and it was tied at one heading into the second. Dallas scored the only goal of the second period and held that 2-1 lead for a long time. With 2:22 remaining in regulation, Vegas flipped one on net and sent the game to overtime. Just 1:12 into the overtime period, Chandler Stephenson won the game for Vegas, 3-2, and gave the Golden Knights a 2-1 series lead.

Stephenson was joined on the scoresheet by Jonathan Marchessault, who sent the game to overtime, and Mark Stone. Six different Vegas players recorded an assist on the day.

The Dallas Stars Have Hit A Bit of a Slump

Dallas was able to finish off the Kraken in seven games, but they have now lost three of their last four games and need to win both of their home games. The Stars are one deflection, shot, or pass away from leading this series 2-0, so they will feel they are still very much in this series.

Miro Heiskanen and Jason Robertson both scored for Dallas in the loss. Three different Stars players recorded at least one assist on the day.
