Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Semifinals kicks off tonight between the Vegas Golden Knights and the Montreal Canadiens from the Bell Centre. Montreal stunned most of the hockey community on Wednesday night as they stole a 3-2 win in Vegas, but held on by the skin of their teeth. Joel Armia, Tyler Toffoli, and Paul Byron opened up a commanding 3-0 lead in favor of the Canadiens throughout the first 38 minutes of the game.

However, Vegas stormed back late in the game to make it a one-goal game, and then it was all Carey Price the rest of the way. The Golden Knights made a slight adjustment to their lineup by sliding Alex Tuch to the top line with Chandler Stephenson sidelined with an injury.
