Going into Avalanche vs Stars Game 5, the Dallas Stars hold a 3-1 series lead, meaning they can close this series out at home on Wednesday night. The Stars had to settle for a split of the first two games in this series at home, but managed to win both games in Colorado to grab the commanding lead they currently possess. Now the question is whether or not Dallas can end this series and avoid having to go back to Ball Arena for a Game 6 in a hostile environment.

Lately, the defense of Dallas has been a huge reason for their success, as they have held the Avalanche to just one goal in each of the last two games. Given that the Avs won three-quarters of their home games this season prior to this series, that is no small accomplishment from the Stars. And we expect the Dallas defense to continue to have success in Game 5 to help them to come away with a win that will send them to the Western Conference Final.

This season, the Avs had a losing record on the road going into the playoffs. We expect their struggles on the road to continue in this game, as the Stars should continue to clamp down on them defensively. While we would love to see these two excellent teams play more games, that is unlikely to happen as the Stars should end this series in five.
