Vegas Golden Knights vs. Colorado Avalanche.
07.06.2021. Stadium: "T-Mobile Arena" (Las Vegas),
Game 4. The score in the series is 1-2.
Vegas picked up a tough win in the third game of the series. "The Knights blew the score, but it's too early to stop. A loss in Game 4 would put Peter DeBoer's team in a terrible position. Will Vegas be able to upset Colorado for the second time in a row on home ice? Let's pick a few bets at once.
Vegas needed a lot of power
После двух поражений в Денвере «Голден Найтс» поставили себя на край пропасти – поражение в первой домашней игре серии фактически означало бы для «Вегаса» вылет из розыгрыша Кубка Стэнли. Отыграть 0:3 у сегодняшних «Эвеланш» вряд ли под силу вообще кому бы то ни было.
The Las Vegas hockey players did everything they could to give themselves a fighting chance - they attacked the entire game, hitting 43 shots and didn't shut down for a second. All the same, they nearly lost. The score was 1-2 until the middle of the third period when a tricky move near the net was made by Jonathan Marchessault. The forward sent the puck into the back of Philipp Grubauer, from which it bounced into the net. That goal inspired the Golden Knights, and a minute later they took the lead on a shot from the blue line by Holden, whose stick was planted by Max Pacioretty. As a result, Vegas took a 3-2 lead. But with what difficulty!
Colorado, without even turning it on full throttle, was close to succeeding
Despite Vegas' gigantic advantage in shots on goal in Game 3, the Avalanche were still close to winning. Mikko Rantanen scored on the power play in the fifth minute of the third period to give his team a 2-1 lead. They were just a little short. As already mentioned, the Golden Knights managed to get back into the game just 5 minutes before the final siren. That didn't do without luck - Marchessault's puck was also a surprising coincidence. In the end, Colorado staged a power play but, by all accounts, weren't particularly upset by the fact that they couldn't come back. After all, Vegas played to the best of its ability, while the Avalanche fell far short. It is very likely that Game 4 will be a demonstration of the true alignment of forces in this pairing.
