The GIST: With the Eastern Conference champion already decided, the quest for the West rages on and could be decided by the end of the weekend. Dun, dun, dun…
Western Conference Final: The Dallas Stars aren’t going down without a fight. Facing elimination, the Stars rallied for a 3–2 overtime home win over the Vegas Golden Knights last night, cutting their series deficit to 3-1. But now they’ll have to keep on shining with a Game 5 date in Sin City tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET.
Eastern Conference Final: Carolina Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour can try to deny it, but the underdog Florida Panthers continued their shocking run on Wednesday, sweeping away the ’Canes with a last-second 4–3 win.
- That dub sends the Panthers through to their first Stanley Cup Final since 1996, before playoff hero forward Matthew Tkachuk (pronounced kuh-CHUCK) was even born. Me-ow.
