The Golden Knights force a final match

The Golden Knights force a final match

The first round of the NHL playoffs are over, with only three active series remaining before yesterday evening.

Two series could also end last night, with two teams facing elimination.

Here's what happened in these two matches.

Golden Knights Force 7 game

After losing the last three games in the series to the Dallas Stars, the Golden Knights faced elimination last night in Vegas in Game 6.

The defending champions had to win if they wanted to survive by forcing a final.

Well, that's exactly what they did, winning 2-0.

It was a very close game until the end, when we had to wait until midway through the third period to see the first goal of the game.

It was defenseman Noah Hanifin, who was acquired at the trade deadline, who made a great move and then made an excellent shot.

The Golden Knights then fought off various threats from the Stars to finally complete the score into an empty net through Mr. LTIR, Mark Stone.

In short, the Golden Knights emerged victorious from this encounter, with Aden Hill scoring a powerful shot.

Thus, this series will move to the final match, where the two teams will face each other in Game No. 7, which will be held on Sunday in Dallas starting at 7:30 pm.

The series is 3 to 3.

The Vancouver Canucks barely made it to the second round

In the other game of the evening, the Vancouver Canucks had the opportunity to send the Nashville Predators on vacation and thus join the Edmonton Oilers in the second round.

The Canucks needed to win Game 6 in Nashville to win the series, and that's exactly what they did.

However, it wasn't really easy and, as in the Golden Knights game, we had to wait until the third period before we saw the first goal.

In fact, the only goal of this game was scored with less than two minutes left in the third period.

It was Pius Suter who played the hero for the Canucks with a smart pass from behind the scenes by Brock Boeser.

After that, the Predators did everything they could to tie the game, enjoying a power play in the final 30 seconds, but it wasn't enough.

Tyler Myers saved the Canucks with a save from his family jewels, while the net was completely empty against Gustav Nyquist.

Roman Josi then chose to shoot and missed the target on the last chance of the match. Just imagine if he had chosen to pass it to Filip Forsberg… Sailov no longer had his stick and the net was empty.

In short, it's a very big win for a Canucks team that can give a big thank you to Artur Siloves, the team's third goaltender, who has performed excellently since replacing Thatcher Demko and Casey DeSmith.

He is the youngest goaltender (23 years old) in Canucks history to earn a playoff shutout.

Let's see how he does in the next round against a strong Edmonton Oilers team.

It really won't be an easy task for the Canucks.

The Canucks won the series 4 to 2.
