The Vegas Golden Knights won’t compete in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in franchise history. Without getting too into depth on the injuries and cap shenanigans, it is incredibly surprising that Vegas failed to qualify.

The Dallas Stars ended up claiming the final spot of the playoffs in the Western Conference by picking up a point on Wednesday night in an overtime loss to the Arizona Coyotes. Dallas defeated Vegas in a shootout decision on Tuesday.

16 teams have punched their tickets for the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs, but the final seedings and most of the matchups still need to be decided in the coming days.
