But it's also Adin Hill that hasn't been doing well for the Golden Knights. Since February 12, the Calgary native is no longer "King of the Hill," with a 5-9 record and a save percentage of .876 entering Thursday's game against Anaheim. As mentioned earlier, the Dallas Stars love to shoot the puck.

If Hill gets the nod for the playoff series, Golden Knights fans will feel a little uneasy. Dallas's offensive depth will be too much for the goaltender, forcing Cassidy to make a critical decision. But will it be too late if Hill botches his opportunity?
