The Dallas Stars face the Vegas Golden Knights in Game Five of the Western Conference Final. The Stars looked poised for a quick elimination but battled in Game Four to win in overtime to keep their season alive. The Golden Knights were hoping to sweep the series but stumbled in overtime and will return to their home ice for Game Five. The Stars hope to force a Game Six on their home ice while the Golden Knights are looking to advance to the Western Conference Final and Game Five should be a great one.

The Stars kept their season alive but hope the offense can step up as it has struggled in the series, scoring only eight goals thus far. Jason Robertson, Roope Hintz, and Joe Pavelski have scored six goals and seven assists to lead the top two lines but the rest of the offense has struggled. The hope is that Tyler Seguin and Mason Marchement can step up as they combined for 33 goals and 48 assists this season but have yet to record a point in this series.

The offense has struggled but the defense stepped up in Game Four, allowing only two goals. Miro Heiskanen and Ryan Suter led the top two lines while Esa Lindell, Jani Hakanpaa, and Thomas Harley added depth to the unit, creating turnovers in the defensive zone and limiting shooting lanes. Additionally, goaltender Jake Oettinger was great in the recent game, saving 37 of the 39 shots he faced.
