The Vegas Golden Knights will have the chance to end the series tonight in game 4 of their best of 7 against the Chicago Blackhawks. A quick
turnaround for the Knights as both teams played last night but in this type of situation, maybe quicker is better.
If they do advance they would play the lowest remaining seed in the west due to the fact they are the number one seed. The Chicago Blackhawks will be the home team on Sunday night and will look to keep their playoff hopes alive.
The Chicago Blackhawks face the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 3 of their Stanley Cup playoffs best-of-7 series at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, on Sunday, August 16, 2020 (8/16/20). The Golden Knights lead the series, 3-0, after defeating the Blackhawks, 2-1, in Game 3 on Friday.
The Knights were in a similar situation last year when they faced the San Jose Sharks when they were up 3-1 and they ended up losing that series so it will be important that the team focuses all their energy on Game 4.
The Vegas Golden Knights can advance in the Stanley Cup Playoffs by defeating the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 5 of the Western Conference First Round at Rogers Place in Edmonton on Tuesday.
It remains unclear if goalies Robin Lehner or Marc-Andre Fleury will start for the Golden Knights. Lehner, who won Games 1 and 2, lost his first game with the Golden Knights in Game 4 on Sunday, 3-1. Fleury was a 2-1 winner in Game 3 on Saturday.
Vegas acquired Lehner in a trade the Toronto Maple Leafs on Feb. 24 after the Blackhawks traded him to Toronto earlier that day. He is 4-1-0 with a 2.32 goals-against average and .908 save percentage in five postseason starts after going 3-0-0 with a 1.67 GAA and .940 save percentage in three regular-season
