Vegas Golden Knights' Run To Stanley Cup Finals Could Pay Off Big In Bets

The Vegas Golden Knights’ remarkable run through the playoffs continued with a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets Sunday, giving them a 4-1 series victory in the Western Conference Final and sending them to the Stanley Cup Final. 

They became the third NHL team to ever reach the Stanley Cup Final in their first season, but their accomplishment stands alone, as the 1967 St. Louis Blues only had to play other expansion teams ahead of the final and the 1918 Toronto Arenas were mostly expansion only in name, using plenty of players from their predecessor Toronto Blueshirts. In fact the Golden Knights’ run might be the most impressive accomplishment for an expansion team ever, and it certainly looks like the best from the four largest North American sports. But there’s one group in Vegas that may not be all that happy about this, and that’s the sports books.
