The NHL's "Frozen Four" is set, with the Vegas Golden Knights facing off against the Winnipeg Jets to determine who will represent the Western Conference in the Stanley Cup Final. The Golden Knights' history-making to the conference final has been more like a runaway freight train with no one capable to slow them down. The Jets have proved their worth by knocking off the best team in the league in seven games. Who advances? 🏒

The Golden Knights may be in their first season, but they sure don't look like it. Vegas is riding a motley crew of rejected young guns and veterans, on the cusp of one of the most unheard of achievements ever: an expansion team reaching the Stanley Cup Final.

Marc-Andre Fleury has been a revelation between the pipes all year and he's taken it to an interplanetary level during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He leads all NHL goalies with a .951 save percentage and allowing only 1.53 goals a goal. He also has the most shutouts in the postseason this year. Hot goaltending can carry teams in the playoffs and with Fleury on fire, nothing will stop the Golden Knights.

While the Predators and Golden Knights have been getting headlines, the Winnipeg Jets have been quietly building one of the best teams in the NHL. What the Jets lack in experience, they make up with guts—and a young roster that goes all out on the ice. Winnipeg may not have big names, but they have developing talent on the brink of stardom. From goalie Connor Hellebuyck to Blake Wheeler and Dustin Byfuglien, these Jets have already shown they are ready to shine by eliminating the Minnesota Wild in five games and grinding out a seven-game series against the Nashville Predators.

Mark Scheifele was one of the Jets' four 20-goal scorers, but he has been on fire in the playoffs. He leads the NHL with 11 goals and has been sniping with expert precision. The battle-tested Jets are going to grind the Golden Knights into the ground.
