Golden Knights vs Stars | OddsShark Matchup Report
Opening NHL Odds: Golden Knights -162 Favorites
The Golden Knights will attempt to even the Western Conference Final at two games apiece when they take on the Stars as betting favorites again in Game 4 on Saturday. Vegas fell 3-2 in overtime in Game 3 as -170 chalk after trailing Dallas twice and rallying back to tie the score to force the extra session.
The Golden Knights got both of their Game 3 goals in the third period after allowing Jamie Oleksiak score the first of the game with only 17 seconds left in the second. The Stars then got the game-winning goal from Alexander Radulov 31 seconds into OT, his eighth of the postseason. Radulov is one of three different Dallas players with eight goals in the playoffs, and they have six with at least four, proving how balanced offensively the team has been.
Vegas figures to go with Robin Lehner again between the pipes. Lehner has posted four shutouts in his last eight starts while giving up an average of three goals in the other four games. The total has gone UNDER in six straight for the Golden Knights, who have lost four times during that stretch. They have closed as favorites of -160 or higher in 15 consecutive games as well. Meanwhile, the Stars have gone 7-2 in their last nine games as underdogs, with the UNDER on a 3-0 run.
