Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights turned in a masterful regular season performance to finish as the best team in the Pacific Division. Being the newest team in the NHL, it was unprecedented to see an expansion team achieve that level of success. Additionally, the Golden Knights performance so far in the postseason makes it clear that Vegas is far from done with this year’s success. Although the Golden Knights were able to sweep the Los Angeles Kings in 4-games, San Jose is giving them a bit tougher of a time. Specifically, the Sharks have already handed Vegas their 1st postseason loss. On top of that, two of the series’ three games have gone into overtime. Clearly, this is one heated of a series.
Players to Watch: Reilly Smith (1 G, 8 A, 9 PTS), William Karlsson (4 G, 5 A, 9 PTS), and Jonathan Marchessault (2 G, 6 A, 8 PTS).
San Jose Sharks
The Sharks are already faring better against the Knights than the Kings did. This is a bit surprising, since San Jose lost 3 out of 4 meetings versus Vegas during the regular season. However, it’s clear that San Jose has the making to compete with the Golden Knights. Although San Jose was unable to pick up the home win in Game 3, they were at least able to force overtime. This time around, the NHL hockey betting odds are fairly certain that San Jose will come out on top. Should bettors share this sentiment?
Players to Watch: Joe Pavelski (1 G, 6 A, 7 PTS), Logan Couture (4 G, 3 A, 7 PTS), and Brent Burns (3 G, 3 A, 6 PTS).
