Vegas Golden Knights

While the Golden Knights are up 3 games to none, they haven’t exactly been whooping on the LA Kings. Firstly, the Golden Knights delivered a 1-0 finish in Game 1 over Los Angeles. Secondly, in Game 2, Vegas managed to come out on top once again 2-1. Granted, this matchup ended going into overtime, but Vegas still got the job done. Thirdly, in Game 3, the Kings put up a tough fight once again. But nevertheless, Vegas displayed their dominance once again 3-2. This is problematic for Los Angeles because the Kings were hoping to get back into the series at home. But Vegas proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that they are the better team.
