1. Adin Hill Was Spectacular

It seems like Bruce Cassidy will be sticking with Adin Hill until further notice. Why? Because the goaltender shut out a high-powered Dallas Stars team, stopping all 23 shots on goal. He delivered a performance of a lifetime against the Western Conference's best team, forcing a Game 7 in the process.

That included a wild sequence, where Hill made three consecutive stops in the second period. He robbed an incoming Tyler Seguin, who stole a pass from Zach Whitecloud. With the Calgary native using everything in his arsenal (including his own blocker and stick), the Vegas Golden Knights hung on for the 2-0 victory.

Now, the Golden Knights have two viable options at goaltender. If Hill is hit with an injury, Logan Thompson can come in to save the day. Thompson has also proven his worth throughout the series, which included a 43-save effort in Game 3. It's a win-win for the Golden Knights heading into Game 7 (and possibly beyond).

If the Golden Knights somehow win the series because of Hill, fans will look back at the moment Bruce Cassidy pulled the trigger. It will be remembered as a gutsy call, meant to stir some emotions in a previously dormant team. Now, Vegas is feeling better about themselves, heading to Dallas for a winner-take-all game. Here's a fun fact: Jake Oettinger has posted a home save percentage of .898 with a GA/G of 2.78 at American Airlines Center.
