The Vegas Golden Knights and Dallas Stars face off on Thursday in game 4 of the NHL Western Conference Finals at the American Airlines Center. The Golden Knights have won the first three games of this series. 

Golden Knights Betting Preview

The Golden Knights are only one win away from making the Stanley Cup Finals. The first two games they won by a goal, but in the last game they looked dominant. They scored three goals in the first period, and they never looked back on the way to the victory. Adin Hill had a strong game, saving all 34 shots that he faced. Ivan Barbashev had a strong game, finishing with one goal and two assists. The Golden Knights are averaging 3.7 goals, while their defense is giving up 2.71 goals per game. The offense is ranked second during the playoffs. Jack Eichel has scored six goals and added 10 assists. 

Stars Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is the Stars, who have their backs against the wall in this game. They lost the first two games by a goal each, but in the last game the offense couldn’t get anything going. Jamie Benn had a major penalty that really cost him the game, and it’s unclear if he’s going to be eligible to play in this game. If he is, there is a chance the team could decide he needs to be sat down. The Stars are averaging 3.25 goals per game, while their pitching is giving up 3.18 goals per game. Roope Hintz has scored 10 goals and added 12 assists so far this season. 

Golden Knights vs Stars Trends

Golden Knights are 7-0 in their last 7 vs. Central Stars are 5-0 in their last 5 games following a loss of 3 or more goals. Golden Knights are 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. Stars are 1-7 in their last 8 vs. a team with a winning % above .600. Stars are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. Pacific.

Shane’s Free Pick

The Stars have their backs against the wall, and they aren’t going to get even a start at climbing out of this hole. The Stars' offense struggled in Game 3, and in Game 4 it’s going to be the offense that has some major issues again. Look for the Stars to only score a goal or two, and the Golden Knights will get the job done. Back the Golden Knights on the money line.
