The Vegas Golden Knights are on their way to their second Stanley Cup Final in franchise history. On Monday in the game that put Vegas in the Stanley Cup Finals, Adin Hill of Comox, British Columbia notched a shutout. The Golden Knights beat the Dallas Stars 6-0 in game six of the Western Conference Finals. With the win, the Golden Knights won the best out of seven series four games to two at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Hill made seven saves in the first period, five saves in the second period and 11 saves in the third period. Four Stars led the team with three shots on goal each. They were Matt Domi of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Tyler Seguin of Brampton, Ontario, Ty Dellandrea of Toronto, Ontario, and defenseman Miro Heiskanen.

Offensively for Vegas on Monday in game six, four Canadians had a multi-point game. Michael Amadio of Sault. Ste. Marie, Ontario, William Carrier of LaSalle, Quebec, and Keegan Kolesar of Brandon, Manitoba each had one goal and one assist for two points, while Reilly Smith of Mimico, Ontario had two assists. The other Golden Knights goal scorer was Jonathan Marchessault of Cap-Rouge, Quebec.
