One series is complete after just four games, and the Stanley Cup finalists could be determined tonight if the Vegas Golden Knights earn one more win on the road.

Game 3 went about as poorly as possible for Dallas, and that can largely be blamed on captain Jamie Benn for taking himself out of action in the opening minutes with a crosscheck to the jaw of Mark Stone. It left his team to play down a forward, and the Stars couldn't keep pace with a Golden Knights team feasting on the struggles of Jake Oettinger.

It's going to take a major effort just for the Stars, without their suspended captain, to win one game now, let alone the four required to advance.
