Once a 500-to-1 shot to win the Stanley Cup when the puck dropped on their inaugural season in October, the Vegas Golden Knights are four wins away. Vegas is going to the Stanley Cup Final. Believe it.

Perhaps the most unbelievable story in the history of professional sports, this group of Golden Misfits wrote another incredible chapter on Sunday afternoon when they silenced the Winnipeg Whiteout. The Golden Knights never trailed after Game 1, knocking off Winnipeg in four straight games, culminating with a clinical, 2-1 clincher in Game 5 at Bell MTS Place. By Frank Seravalli, TSN Senior Hockey
