The Vegas Golden Knights (2-1 series) will try and put a chokehold on the Winnipeg Jets (1-2 series) as they play Game Four of their first-round Stanley Cup Playoff series at 6:30 p.m. tonight in Winnipeg. 

The Golden Knights are coming off a 5-4 double-overtime win against the Jets in Game Three, where Michael Amadio scored the OT winner. No lineup changes are expected for the Golden Knights. Laurent Brossoit will start again.

For the Jets, they are without two of their best players as Nikolaj Ehlers remains out with an upper-body injury, and defenseman Josh Morrissey left Game Three, did not return, and is now confirmed to be out for the rest of the series per head coach Rick Bowness.

What to Watch For

OT Heroics

The Golden Knights and Jets played nearly another half of a game Saturday, with Game Three going to overtime. The Golden Knights prevailed, with Michael Amadio scoring the winner off a Jets' defensive error. This all came after the VGK blew a 4-1 lead in the third period alone.

Now it is up to the Golden Knights to keep the energy and momentum that they got with their OT win into Game Four.


As mentioned before, the Jets are without two of their top players in, Nikolaj Ehlers and Josh Morrissey. Ehlers has missed every game of the series so far, and based on practice lines, Logan Stanley will go in for the injured Morrissey. The VGK must take advantage of the wounded Jets.

Jumping Jacks

Jack Eichel has emerged as a star in this series as he scored three points in Game Three and has three goals in his last two games. The VGK will need him to continue his solid playoff scoring pace if they want to make a run at the Stanley Cup this season.
