The Stars have sprung to life since spotting Vegas a 3-0 series lead, cutting their series deficit to 3-2 with back-to-back wins, capped by Saturday’s 4-2 victory in Vegas.

The Stars are listed as slim -123 home favourites on Monday’s NHL odds. The Golden Knights are +102 underdogs in their third bid to close out this series and advance to the Stanley Cup Final. The total is once again pegged at 5.5.

The OVER paid out in Game 5 for just the second time in this series and only the third time in the past 16 meetings between these clubs. The Stars have some history on their side entering Game 6 after posting wins in five of their past seven home dates. However, they still have a mountain to climb to become just the fifth team in NHL history to overcome a 0-3 series deficit, and the first ever in NHL Conference Finals action.

That is reflected in the NHL playoff series prices, where the Stars continue to trail as +281 longshots while Vegas remains perched as diminished -333 chalk.

Vegas Golden Knights

For the fourth time in the series and the ninth time in as many games, the Golden Knights were outshot in Game 5, and managed to avoid losing by far more than a 4-2 margin thanks to another stellar performance from goaltender Adin Hill. The 27-year-old produced plenty of fodder for the highlight reels while topping 30 of the 34 shots he faced before giving up the first of Ty Dellandrea’s two third-period goals.

However, Hill once again enjoyed little goal support from his Vegas teammates, who have scored just four total goals while watching their series lead dwindle over the past two games. Once again, Mark Stone was stone cold in Game 6, going pointless for a third straight game. Jack Eichel recorded an assist in a fourth straight game on Saturday, and has tallied five helpers over his past six outings. However, he has failed to score over that stretch and has bulged the twine just once in six road games.

Dallas Stars

Ty Dellandrea scored both the game winning and insurance goals in Game 5, and his breakthrough could not have come at a better time. The 22-year-old has struggled to generate points since enjoying a fast start to his first full season with Stars. Dellandrea was held off the scoresheet in his eight previous games and has just four goals and no assists in his past 24 appearances.

Game 6 will mark the return of Jamie Benn to the lineup. The Stars captain has completed a two-game suspension levied after he laid a vicious crosscheck from behind on Mark Stone.

Benn has produced sporadically since enjoying a five-game points streak during the team’s second round series win over Seattle, and has just one goal and no helpers over his past five games.

NHL Prediction: Who Will Win Golden Knights vs. Stars?

The Stars have seized the momentum with their wins in Games 4 and 5, and should get a big lift from the return of their leader Benn. Jason Robertson is heating up with three goals in two games, and Jake Oettinger has returned to familiar form, stopping 64 of 68 total shots over the past two games after looking shaky at times early in the series. That should be good enough to earn the win and force a Game 7 against Golden Knights offence struggling to score.
