Tonight’s game got off to a slow start; with the Stars being out-shot 13-5 in the 1st period. After a scoreless 1st period, Alec Martinez got the Knights up 1-0 at 7:44 on the power play. Joe Pavelski continued his hot streak and tied it up at 11:34. Jamie Benn then gave the Stars the 2-1 lead at 19:01 on the power play. The Golden Knights would continue to pressure and out-shot the Stars 33-20. But in the end, the Knights couldn’t put another one by Khudobin; and the Stars went on to win this one 2-1 and now lead the best-of-7 series 3-1. The Knights are now in a do-or-die position for the remainder of the series. Game 5 is scheduled Monday at 8pm ET; where the Stars will look to send Vegas home. A series win would give the Stars their first ticket to the Stanley Cup Finals in 20 years!
There was a scary incident at 6:43 of the 2nd period. Alex Radulov one-timed a shot that caught Lehner right in the throat. After a brief moment, Lehner was back up on his skates and appeared to have, somehow, only been shaken up. I think he’ll definitely be feeling this one in the morning!
Playoffs Continue Tonight…
The Eastern Conference Finals continue tomorrow afternoon at 3pm ET with the Islanders looking to tie the series up at 2 after an impressive Game 3 win. Alex Killorn will be back in the lineup for the Lightning after serving a one-game suspension. There has been no word yet on whether Brayden Point will return to the lineup for the Bolts or if Casey Cizikas who also missed Game 3, will be back in for the Isles.

Apparently in the last few days there are rumours the Leafs have inquired about Fleury’s availability.
