They then continued their run by sweeping a tough Carolina Hurricanes team thanks in part to their ability to come through in clutch overtime moments. Matthew Tkachuk has been instrumental both as a presence on the ice and as a goal scoring threat during crucial moments. Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has also been exceptional boasting a.935 save percentage in these playoffs further solidifying his reputation for performing well under pressure.

The Vegas Golden Knights were dominant throughout the season and have carried that momentum into the playoffs. Jack Eichel leads their team in points while Jonathan Marchessault has been their goal scorer. Adin Hill stepped up as their starting goaltender after Laurent Brossoit suffered an injury in the postseason and has performed admirably ever since. Notably Vegas enters these finals with one of the road records in these playoffs having won six out of eight games played away, from home.
