Stars Forward Radek Faksa Out for Game 5, Roope Hintz a Game-Time Decision


DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Dallas Stars will be without center Radek Faksa for tonight's Game 5 against the Vegas Golden Knights, interim head coach Rick Bowness announced Monday.

Faksa was declared "unfit to play" in Game 4 and has the same designation for tonight's game.

As for forward Roope Hintz, Bowness called him a game-time decision.

Hintz left Game 4 and never returned after colliding with teammate Corey Perry in the first period.

Ty Dellandrea will likely step into the lineup for Faksa, while Justin Dowling should get the nod if Hintz were to be ruled out.
