Remarkably, it has come to this. The Vegas Golden Knights will likely look to Robin Lehner in the goal after Marc-Andre Fleury’s blunder cost Vegas Game 3, and now Vegas is dragging the Series 2-1 and could fall behind 3-1 if Robin Lehner is a little rusty.
Great drama in the north.

Vegas bombarded Montreal in the series, including a 42-20 advantage in Game 3, but Montreal goalie Carey Price was a wall. Price stopped 106 of 114 shots (0.925%) and gave his team time to breathe when Vegas is on the attack.

NHL betting predictions (June 20, 2021)
Back to the wall, Vegas can’t fold now, can it? We love a big win in Vegas, and we don’t shy away from the +1.5 bet either. This game is a nail breaker or a Vegas blowout. If Vegas gets the two-goal win, it pays +150.
Or, if you think Lehner will be rusty or punctured, Montreal pays +185.
There’s no money to be made on the Moneyline with Vegas, so we’re going to take the 1.5 and cheer for the goals.
