STARS AND GOLDEN KNIGHTS BOTH COULD BE WITHOUT MULTIPLE PLAYERS HEADING INTO GAME 5

The lineups for both the Dallas Stars and Vegas Golden Knights could look somewhat different for Monday’s Game 5 of the Western Conference Final.



The Stars will for sure be without Radek Faksa, who was deemed unfit to play again on Monday. He also missed Game 4 after appearing to injure his hand in the third period of Game 3.

Along with Faksa, Roope Hintz is a game-time decision for the Stars. Hintz was injured after colliding with teammate Corey Perry in the first period of Game 4.

Andrew Cogliano stepped in for Faksa in Game 4, and he tallied an assist. It sounds like he will be in the lineup again for Game 5.

If Hintz is indeed out, Justin Dowling will likely be the candidate to play, but the Stars also have Ty Dellendrea, Nick Caamano, and Jason Robertson at their disposal. All of them are yet to appear in a playoff game thus far. Ben Bishop is still unfit to play for the Stars, but Anton Khudobin has filled in very nicely.

Vegas coach Peter DeBoer refused to give any injury updates on Sunday after he was asked about Mark Stone and Tomas Nosek. Then no updates were given Monday due to technical difficulties with the media and DeBoer.

Nosek did not play in Game 4 after being injured in Game 3, and Nick Cousins was slotted into the lineup for him. Mark Stone would be a huge loss if he is unable to play, since he is one of the best 2-way forwards not only for Vegas, but also in the entire NHL.

Dallas has a chance to advance to the Stanley Cup Final with a win tonight. Vegas will be hoping to extend the series at least one more game. Game 5 will take place at Rogers Place in Edmonton on Monday at 8 p.m. ET.
