Regular Season Record: 51-22-9

The Golden Knights took a little longer to take care of business in the conference finals round but they still looked dominant overall in smoking the Dallas Stars in six games. Vegas is a more well-rounded team than the Panthers, as they have a combination for great forwards and quality defensemen. They are averaging 3.67 goals per game in the playoffs while giving up just 2.65. William Karlsson leads the Golden Knights in the postseason with 10 goals while Jack Eichel paces them in points with 18. Adin Hill has also sparkled in front of the net for Vegas, as he’s gone 7-3 with a 2.07 GA/G and .937 SV% in the playoffs.

The Golden Knights are 4-1 in their last five games after a win.
