Team News

The Dallas Stars will have their first chance to secure their spot in the next round of the playoffs on Friday. A victory in game six would give them a 4-2 advantage in the series, meaning that there would be no need for a game seven in this series. The Stars have picked up their performance levels in each of the previous two games, winning in Minnesota in game four, before landing a victory in Dallas on Wednesday.

Their most recent win was a straightforward success, as they landed a comprehensive 4-0 win at the American Airlines Center. The Stars scored twice in the opening period, before one goal in each of the second and third was registered. Jason Robertson and Tyler Seguin both ended the night with a goal and an assist.

The Minnesota Wild will be back at the Xcel Energy Center on Friday for game six, and they must claim victory to force a series-defining game in Dallas. Game five just didn’t go to plan for the Wild, and they were always chasing their tails after falling 2-0 behind in the opening period.

However, they will take confidence from the fact that they picked up a 5-1 home win in game three of the series, and a similar performance will be required on Friday. But, they have been outclassed in each of the previous two games, which means that a return to form will be desperately needed this weekend.


The previous two performances that the Wild have put in would be extremely concerning. For that reason, we expect the Stars to continue their dominant streak by securing the series in game six on Friday.
