Dallas Stars DFS Spin

Ben Bishop remains unfit to play. Anything could happen, but it seems unlikely that Bishop will be an option for Game 1 of the Western Conference Final. Bishop did attempt to return for Game 5 of the second round, but he was pulled from that contest and wasn't available for Games 6 and 7.

Vegas Golden Knights DFS Spin

Peter DeBoer became the first NHL coach to go 5-0 in Game 7's of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Golden Knights made a coaching switch during the season, firing Gerard Gallant and hiring DeBoer, and it has paid off thus far with the Golden Knights in the Western Conference Final as they beat Vancouver and hot goaltender Thatcher Demko, 3-0 with the last two goals going into the empty net. Vegas will take on Dallas in the Conference Final and you can be sure that DeBoer will have the Golden Knights ready to go for Game 1 Sunday.

Stars vs. Golden Knights Game 1 Betting Prediction

The Stars have struggled in prior matchups with the Knights, dropping six of the last seven meetings with Vegas overall. The Knights have also been stellar over their last 28 games, winning 22 of those contests and posting an 18-6 record in their last 24 games as a favorite. The capper is that they’re 4-0 in their last four conference finals games, 7-1 in their last eight meetings with Central Division foes and 11-4 in their last 15 games when coming off only one day of rest. I’m laying the 1.5 to get extra value in the puckline.
