Can Vegas finish the job here? The Golden Knights dominated most of Game 4 before having to hold on down the stretch, which says two different things about where this series sits. First, the Panthers haven’t thrown in the towel on their chances, as they managed to fight back from 3-0 down to get back to 3-2 before succumbing.
That’s not sustainable long-term for Florida. The Panthers have to either close down the Vegas man advantage, stop giving up so many power plays or get a few power play goals of their own. If they can’t do any of the three, this series will be in prime position to end on Tuesday in Nevada.
If the Panthers don’t come out with a better effort this time, this series isn’t going to last much longer.

Panthers vs. Golden Knights NHL Game 1 Expert Pick – June 3. Dan Angell has all you need to know for the start of the Stanley Cup Final.
Vegas Golden Knights vs. Dallas Stars Expert Pick – May 29. Dan Angell is breaking down a big Game 6 tonight.
Vegas turned to Adin Hill against the Oilers in the second round, and the young netminder stepped up by lifting the Golden Knights to wins in Game 5 and Game 6. But Hill hasn’t done anything beyond the past four games, and it’s unclear if he’s ready to stand up to the pressure of a conference final.
One of these teams was supposed to get here. The other surprised almost everyone, but they caught lightning in a bottle. Florida appeared dead in the water after falling behind 3-1 to Boston in the first round, but the Panthers have won seven of their past eight to reach the Eastern finals for just the second time in team history.
