Dallas Stars Veteran Leader To Be A Game-Time Decision For Game 6

The Dallas Stars took a commanding 3-2 lead in their first-round series over the Minnesota Wild with a dominant 4-0 victory in Game 5, and ahead of Game 6, it appears that they may potentially be getting one of their biggest names back into the lineup.

After suffering a massive hit in the first game of the series, it appears that Joe Pavelski could be on the verge of a return, with Pete DeBoer officially saying that he will travel to Minnesota for Game 6, being labelled a game-time decision ahead of the potential close out game. 

After the performances they've got from Jake Oettinger in this series, if the Stars can get a veteran like Pavelski back and find consistency offensively, this is a team that could make a genuine run through the Western Conference in 2023.
