The Vegas Golden Knights have grounded the Winnipeg Jets and threatened to close the airport for the summer. The Golden Knights lead the series 3-1 and can close it out Wednesday at the Fortress.
In the East, the New York Islanders are staring at elimination against the clearly better Carolina Hurricanes, while the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils can't seem to win on home ice. That series is tied 2-2. The Islanders, Winnipeg, Florida Panthers, and the stunned Tampa Bay Lightning face expulsion from the NHL's Stanley Cup playoffs over the next two days.
Tampa Bay will be talking about that blown third period lead for years. They led the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 lead with 10 minutes remaining in Game 4 but lost in OT.

The Boston Bruins show of strength against Florida has made them a prohibitive favorite to hoist Lord Stanley's prize, and Toronto fans are throwing money at the Maple Leafs' Cup hopes.
|New York Rangers||15/2||(+750)|
|Toronto Maple Leafs||15/2||(+750)|
|Vegas Golden Knights||14/1||(+1400)|
|New Jersey Devils||22/1||(+2200)|
|Tampa Bay Lightning||35/1||(+3500)|
|Los Angeles Kings||40/1||(+4000)|
|New York Islanders||150/1||(+15000)|
Despite missing their top two centers, Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci, the Boston Bruins have flexed on the Florida Panthers. Florida has taken penalties and failed to beat Vezina Trophy favorite Linus Ullmark with any regularity.
Bergeron is expected to play in Game 5, too.
The Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Tampa Bay Lightning is the must-watch series of the NHL's Stanley Cup playoffs. Fantastic speed and intensity have highlighted Games 3 and 4. Game 3 went to OT before Toronto won, and Game 4 was seemingly in the bag for Tampa before the momentous comeback that sent Toronto fans at watch parties across Canada into delirium.
Kerfoot scored the game-winner in OT.
Toronto hasn’t won a Round One series since 2003.
If you're into hockey on your off night, the LA Kings vs. Edmonton Oilers has been a fantastic display of contrasting styles and talent. Three of the games have been decided in the final minutes or overtime. The Kings mounted fierce comebacks in each of the first two games to earn a 1-1 split, but LA lost a huge lead during the second period of Game 4 and lost in OT.
Edmonton's Leon Draisaitl has been unstoppable, as well as the usual contributions from Connor McDavid. Draisaitl has been on the ice for all 14 Edmonton goals in the series. His 1.6 career average points per game in the playoffs ranks second all-time, behind only Wayne Gretzky (1.837).
In McDavid's career, Edmonton has yet to play in a Stanley Cup Final.
The Islanders also hope to avoid elimination Tuesday against the Carolina Hurricanes. Carolina crushed New York Sunday afternoon with a 5-2 win. The Islanders didn’t score until late in the game and trailed from the early minutes of the first period after yielding a 5v3 power play goal.
