Picking the Celtics has put Howard_T in front in the NBA Playoff Pickem. NoMich went with Boston also and both of them had the series going 7.

My Celtics will never disappoint me, but I thought for a while last night that I wouldn't survive the game. What a war that was.

Dallas really gutted out that win over Vegas tonight. They defended that 5-3 incredibly well. Good job, but they got one more to go over a great Vegas team

Khudobin really saved their asses last night (no pun intended). One of the biggest things that scares me is the shots-on-goal differential in this series. At one point, I think about midway through the second period, it was something like 22-6 in favor of Vegas, despite the Stars having had at least two power plays. That's....not good. But they seem to be finding a way to win.

The penalty kill in the third was a series-defining moment. The Stars positioning during the 5-on-3 was fantastic, though I feel like they were helped by a Golden Knights team that was less aggressive than it could have been. They seemed to be waiting for the perfect pass.

I think Vegas had only five shots on goal in the 3rd, right? Is that correct? I can't find a box score that shows SOG by period.

As per NBCSports , shots on goal in the 3rd period were Vegas 9 Dallas 6

Dang. It really felt like Dallas had more shots on goal in the 3rd
