Edmonton, Alberta (AP)-Tyler Seggin sought to answer Dallas’s attack on the final round of what happened in the final at the Western Conference.
“Two different teams-or Vegas are different teams,” he said.
Dallas doesn’t look like the same team who scored 31 goals in seven games against Colorado. After winning the final Western opener 1-0 and being closed to Golden Knights in Game 2, the star must find an attack in a showdown between two similar large teams of two. For the Stanley Cup.
“The whole series will be a chess game,” Dallas captain Jamie Ben said Wednesday, ahead of Game 3 Thursday night. It just shows how well the Vegas team is organized and how good they are. They don’t give you much, and you have to take advantage of your opportunities.”
Stars don’t do it. Since scoring in the first shot of Game 1, they have had 19 attempts blocked by Las Vegas defenders, 48 were stopped by the goalkeeper and 14 missed the net. The Golden Knights have scored 57 shots so far and chased Anton Kudbin with three second-cycle goals on Tuesday.
Ben thinks power play needs to make a difference, and Dallas is also 0 to 4 in that division. Seguin and veteran Swinger Corey Perry haven’t scored points in six consecutive games, so it’s a good time to make the best of some stars.
“It might be frustrating, but at the same time we won some hockey games,” Perry said. We are fighting We are trying to do other things to help the team, and they will come. We will look better and our goals will come.”
The Golden Knights approach was after meeting the goalkeeper in the second half of the match against Vancouver and releasing his goose egg in Game 1 of the West Final. When the packs started coming in, Vegas looked like he used to be.
If not, the penalty kills were very good, with 15 out of 15 perfect in the last five games. Golden Knights sucks the trust of the stars, builds on it, and knows it can handle odd penalties or two.
“Many of them jump over the board with confidence and be confident in their PK case and be confident in the extra ice foot or challenge that plays a little faster than normal if they don’t Yes,” said Peter Deboer. “Now there is some confusion, and I want to keep it.”
Dallas is aggressive in aggressive zones and lacks a belief in the overall team game that is supposed to defend well. This is basically the same strategy as Vegas, which makes it a much better mirror match than any previous series of playoffs.
“It’s a real balance, and I think a lot of it has to do with the opponents you’re playing against,” said Jim Nill of Dallas, who was selected as general manager finalist this year. ” Vegas is a very good team. …We are both big and heavy teams. Both were good at supporting the pack and got great goaltenders. So I think what you see is what you get.”
Unfortunately for the Stars, the Golden Knights have been dominated since the third period of Game 1, with Robin Leener and Mark Andre Fleuri having two goaltenders. He said it cost Rick Bowness’s coach in Game 2 to turn things around and avoid “voluntary problems.”
“I think we have two well-trained teams and two highly trained teams,” Nill said. “They will be a much tighter game”
