NHL Betting Predictions – Must Watch Conference Games

Written by on September 14, 2020

With the NHL playoffs hotter than an August afternoon in South Texas and a pair of huge conference finals matchups on tap this coming week, it’s time to find out if both contests will end their respective series showdowns or whether we could get a couple of more games before the official start of the NHL Stanley Cup Championship. Let’s take a closer look at the upcoming matches so you can make your bets against their NHL odds.

Must Watch Games of the NHL Conference Finals to Bet On

Dallas (49-32-8) at Vegas Game (51-30-9) 

  • Game 5: Monday, Sept. 14, 2020 at 8:00 PM ET

Dallas is up 3-1 on Vegas as they get set for Game 5 on Monday night. The Stars recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win in Game 1 as John Klingberg scored the game’s only goal. Vegas bounced back with an emphatic 3-0 win in Game 2 as Paul Stastny, William Karlsson and Thomas Nosek all scored. Dallas got a hard-fought 3-2 overtime win in Game 3 as Jamie Oleksiak, Jamie Benn and Alexander Radulov all found the back of the net. The Stars took a 3-1 series lead on Saturday as Joe Pavelski and Benn lit the lamp. Now, as we head into the new week, game 5 is a must-see matchup as Vegas looks to extend its season. 

The good news is that Vegas knows all about how fast a series can change. After taking a 3-1 series lead against Vancouver in the semifinal round, the Golden Knights needed a win in Game 7 to dispatch the feisty Canucks

“We stuck with it, said Vegas coach Pete DeBoer. “This is a long way from over, and we’re going to be a tough out.” 

Dallas has been outshot in the series, but the Stars keep finding the back of the net when it matters most – a trait the Knights usually use against their opponents. 

“You can’t play the shot clock,” said Stars forward Joe Pavelski. “There is a big commitment in our locker room. Would we like better stretches at times? Absolutely. We understand where we’re at, and we haven’t done anything yet. We’re one step closer, but nothing has been accomplished yet, so we’ll just stay focused, try to play our best game of the series (in Game 5).”
