Stars take 3-1 stranglehold lead over Knights in National Hockey League playoffs

Stars take 3-1 stranglehold lead over Knights in National Hockey League playoffs”

The surprising Dallas Stars can punch their ticket to the Stanley Cup Final with a victory over the Vegas Golden Knights.

"We've been here before. We have to stick with it until we do".

Dallas shouldn't have won this game; Vegas should have easily tied this series based on the first and second period.

Well, not exactly the same situation. After McNabb took a awful holding punishment in the minute and Benn felt on the power play to make it 2-1, which was only Dallas' second shooter.

Anton Khudobin stated, several times, after Game 3 that he wasn't injured. After not scoring a goal in game one, forward Paul Stastny found the back of the net first for Vegas.

"Pretty spectacular performances. Kept us in that game tonight for sure", Dallas captain Jamie Benn said. They led the series after a 1-0 opening game shutout of Vegas.

"I guess not", Vegas forward Reilly Smith said. "We're one step closer, but nothing has been accomplished yet, so we'll just stay focused, try to play our best game of the series (in Game 5)".

"As we've gone here, we've continued to find ways to win and that shows you're a good team", Stars centre Andrew Cogliano said Sunday.

DeBoer agreed that the Knights needed more traffic in front of the opposing goalie.

"We are enjoying with the most penalized team in the playoffs and now we have got the puck, so that I anticipate the penalties to maintain our favor, and we have earned this by our field and from how we are enjoying", DeBoer said. "I think we're creating a lot of really good looks". If they are going to beat the Stars in this one, I don't think the Knights will score just a goal or two. It's making it as tough as we can on him, making sure the puck gets in the hands of the right guys for us, and having the confidence to shoot one by him here. But the effort's there to do that.

"He's a fighter. He's a battler".

"We'll get together later when we know who's ready to go as a staff and we'll discuss that, who is going in", Bowness said. Alec Martinez's power-play goal at 7:44 of the second period did just that after a scoreless first.

The veteran goalie bounced around six teams in 11 National Hockey League seasons, the past two in Dallas. The Stars, on efficient shooting, took the 2-1 series lead. His casual glove stopped on Shea Theodore throughout 1:10 of all Vegas five-on-three power-play time revealed the way locked in he had been.

That said, the Golden Knights know all too well how a series can change. Vegas has scored 224 goals and is fourth in the Western Conference averaging 3.2 goals per game. William Karlsson scored in their Game 2 win and had an assist in Game 3, but he's scoreless in four of six games.

"All we need is to finish". "It's not going to be flawless every night, but it seems like we have a lot of guys who buy in on a nightly basis and understand what their roles are, really do what they need to do to win games". "Their best player, Joe Pavelski, takes a backhand, it rolls up the shaft of our stick and over our goalie's shoulder. We have to get bodies there". On Saturday, with the Golden Knights trailing 2-1 and staring down a 3-1 series deficit, Vegas couldn't find a shot on goal in the final 3:51. That's how you win: "When you have a team that there's a different player each and every night that can come forward and players being happy for each other".

"We have no update on Roope", Bowness said. "We're not taking our eyes off of that".
