At 8:05 pm, our selection is on the Dallas Stars over the Vegas Golden Knights. Vegas is trying to follow in the footsteps -- or skates perhaps -- of the Panthers who dispatched of the Hurricanes in four straight games and await the winner of this series in the Stanley Cup Finals. The Knights hold a dominant 3-0 lead in this series and -- as opposed to the upstart Panthers (who were the #8 seed in the East) -- have been the higher-seeded team in each of its playoff match-ups. Dallas had high hopes going into Game 3. But it was as disastrous a game for the Stars as could have ever been imagined -- from captain Jamie Benn's ugly cross check which resulted in a two-game suspension, to usually-reliable goalie Jake Oettinger getting yanked after just seven minutes (three goals allowed on five shots). But there's no panic in the Stars who are home again for Game 4. Look for Oettinger to come out with something to prove tonight as will offensive stars Roope Hintz (leading all players with 22 playoff points) and Joe Pavelski. The Stars certainly will want to redeem themselves after that debacle on Tuesday. Key stats: the Stars are 32-12 (+16.2 net games) off a home shutout defeat, and 73-39 (+20.8 net games) off a home blowout loss by 3+ goals. Take Dallas. As always, good luck...Al McMordie
