Dallas won the crucial Game 5 at home against Vegas.

Jason Robertson notched a power-play goal to put the Stars ahead near the end of the 2nd period after Tyler Seguin took a shot to the face and Dallas Stars won against the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 in Game 5 at American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX, becoming the 1st home organization to triumph in this opening-round matchup that they now lead.

Evgenii Dadonov and Matt Duchene also notched for Dallas, who have triumphed in 3 straight matches after losing the 1st 2 clashes at American Airlines Center in the past week as the top seed in the West.

Stars goaltender Jake Oettinger made 25 saves, featuring a nearly full-split save to deny Chandler Stephenson on a charge with almost 3 minutes left in the match.

Hill stopped 22 shots after Logan Thompson was from the 1st minute on the ice in the 1st 4 matches.

Mark Stone and William Carrier notched the goals for the Golden Knights.

Game 6 is Friday in Las Vegas, where Dallas triumphed in both matches from the series so far.
