The Western Conference Finals head to game six when the Vegas Golden Knights visit the Dallas Stars Monday night. Dallas has won two games in a row to make this series interesting again. Below is my NHL pick for the Vegas Golden Knights vs Dallas Stars.
The Pick: Vegas Golden Knights +106
This game will be played at American Airlines Center at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, May 29, 2023.
✅ Vegas has won five of their last seven games played, though those two losses have been the past two games.
✅ The Golden Knights were able to steal one in Dallas and they will feel confident in doing it again.
✅ Dallas has played tough, long, series all playoffs and their legs are going to give at some point.
Vegas jumped out to a 3-0 series lead and were in overtime in game four looking to end it, but the Stars have now grabbed two games in a row to make this an actual series. The Golden Knights would have felt confident to close the series out at home, in game five, but that was not the case and back to Dallas we head.
Game five got started with a Vegas lead after scoring 13:36 into the period. Dallas quickly answered back with a goal of their own and this game was tied at one after one. The action got started quicker in the second period as the Golden Knights again grabbed the lead, 3:20 into the period, before the Stars answered back 2:10 later. It remained tied at two until midway through the third period when Ty Dellandrea scored two goals in 1:27 to give Dallas a 4-2 lead. The game would end with Dallas winning 4-2 and now trailing 3-2 in the series.
Ivan Barbashev and Chandler Stephenson both scored in the defeat. Three different Golden Knights recorded at least one assist on the night.
The Dallas Stars Are Playing with Confidence
Dallas is going to be flying around the ice in game six as they will be buzzing in what may be their final home game of the season. The Stars came back from a one goal deficit two times in their game five win and are now just two wins away from coming back from 3-0.
In the game five win, Ty Dellandrea, two goals, was joined on the scoresheet by Luke Glendening and Jason Robertson. Five different Stars recorded at least one assist on the night.
