Feels like it should be a Western Conference Final, doesn’t it? The Dallas Stars are squaring off against the Vegas Golden Knights in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. And boy, it’s gonna be epic. They kick things off on Monday, April 22.

The Stars? They’ve been killing it all season. Star power? Check. Depth? Double check. They’ve got eight players who’ve hit the 20-goal mark. Not to mention, the lethal trio of Jason Robertson, Roope Hintz, and Joe Pavelski. And let’s not forget the defense. Miro Heiskanen’s leading a solid crew, with Chis Tanev and the up-and-coming Thomas Harley. Jake Oettinger in net? He’s found his groove, and just in time. No wonder the Stars are the favorites out West.

Now, the Golden Knights. They’ve had their ups and downs, thanks to injuries. But guess what? They’re back in full force. Tomas Hertl’s making waves since the trade deadline. And Mark Stone? He’s back on the ice after dealing with a nasty spleen issue. Full strength Vegas is a force to be reckoned with. They’re not your average No. 8 seed.

So, we’re set for a rematch of last season’s conference final. Here’s how the schedule’s looking:

– Game 1: Monday, April 22 | 9:30 p.m. | at DAL | ESPN
– Game 2: Wednesday, April 24 | 9:30 p.m. | at DAL | ESPN
