Vegas Golden Knights Form & Team News


Vegas are on the brink of exiting the playoffs, having at one time been the outright favourites.

The Golden Knights won a marathon seven-game clash with Minnesota in round one and needed six games to upset Colorado in the last round.

They made a fast start to this series with Montreal though, storming to a 4-1 victory in Game 1 on the home ice, but things have gone downhill quickly.

Vegas have struggled to break down the Canadiens defensively and when they have they have come up against an inspired goalie.

That resulted in 3-2 defeats in Games 2 and 3 and although they bounced back to take Game 4, 2-1 in overtime, the same problems returned in Game 5.

The Golden Knights had huge issues trying to get the puck past Carey Price and that resulted in a shock 4-1 defeat that leaves them behind the 8-Ball.

Vegas have to win Game 6 and they do have Chandler Stephenson back from an upper body injury for it.

However, they could once again be without Peyton Krebs, who remains day-to-day with a jaw injury.

Montreal Canadiens Form & Team News


Montreal have been springing upsets since the playoffs began and they are on the verge of KO’ing the team that were outright favourites prior to this series.

The Canadiens came back from the brink against Toronto to stun the Maple Leafs in Game 7, and then swept Winnipeg in four games.

They are now one win away from dumping out Vegas and booking a place in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Canadiens saw their seven-game win streak come to a shuddering halt as they lost 4-1 to the Golden Knights in Game 1, but they hit back in Games 2 & 3.

Carey Price made 29 saves as Montreal took Game 2, 3-2, and he then racked up a series-high 43 saves as the Canadiens against won 3-2 in Game 3.

A 2-1 overtime defeat in Game 4 levelled the series, but Montreal responded in fantastic fashion as they regained the series lead with a 4-1 win in Vegas.

They could now seal the series in Game 6 and there are now new injury worries for the Canadiens to contend with, with only Jake Evans (concussion) and Jonathan Drouin (personal) still sidelined.
