The Vegas Golden Knights are going to be a tough opponent for the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Chicago Blackhawks were so incredible in their play-in series against the Edmonton Oilers. They pulled off a major upset and got themselves into the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. We knew that their opponent would be the winner of the round-robin game between the Vegas Golden Knights and Colorado Avalanche. Both of those teams are very good so it didn’t really matter that much because it is going to be a tough series either way.
The Vegas Golden Knights won a very tough game in overtime on a goal by Alex Tuch. This is a team that rolls four very good lines and plays solid defense while getting offense from all areas. One individual skater that deserves extra attention is forward Mark Stone. He is one of the best two-way forwards in the National Hockey League and can burn his opponent on every end of the ice.
