2 units on Vegas +1.5 goals -185 (puckline) (risk 2 to return 3.08) RESULT: WIN
Colorado is totally flustered and on the ropes after losing the last two games after taking a 2-0 series lead. Max Pacioretty has returned in a big way, and the Golden Knights have been getting contributions from several skaters. Jonathan Marchessault recorded a hat trick in the Knights' 5-1 victory on Sunday to tie the series at 2-2, and they have bottled up the Avalanche in its own end with superior forechecking. Marc-Andre Fleury has a 1.79 goals-against average and a .924 save percentage in 10 postseason games while Vegas has solved Philipp Grubauer, who allowed all five goals in Game 4. The Golden Knights actually have outplayed the Avalanche the last three games, although they lost 3-2 in Game 2 while missing several scoring opportunities. Vegas is 11-2 its past 13 games versus an opponent that scored two or fewer goals its previous game. Take the Golden Knights on the puckline for a Max Play.
