After a thrilling overtime victory on Sunday, the Vegas Golden Knights now hold a 2-0 series lead against the Dallas Stars. With just two wins away from reaching the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 2018, the Golden Knights’ top players have been instrumental in their success.
Jack Eichel provided an assist in the last game, while Chandler Stephenson and Jonathan Marchessault each contributed a goal and an assist. However, as the series shifts to Dallas, the Golden Knights should anticipate a tough battle, as the Stars have proven to be a formidable team at home throughout the playoffs.
The Stars find themselves in a mix of emotions, knowing that the series could have been 1-1 or even in their favor with a few different bounces. Nevertheless, they must quickly regroup as they return home for tonight’s game.
In Game 2, the Stars executed a nearly flawless road game, but a couple of costly mistakes allowed the Golden Knights to get back in the contest. To turn the tide, the Stars will rely on their top forwards, Roope Hintz and Jason Robertson, to step up and make a significant impact. If the Stars can come out strong in front of their home crowd, I believe they have a good chance of getting back into the series.
With the Stars’ strong home record and the added motivation to bounce back, I recommend placing a money line bet on the Dallas Stars to secure the victory. The odds currently stand at -140, offering a favorable opportunity to capitalize on the Stars’ potential resurgence.
