Stars push Predators to edge of elimination with 5-3 win

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Alexander Radulov scored two goals in the second period and the Dallas Stars beat the Nashville Predators 5-3 on Saturday to push the Western Conference's No. 2 seed to the brink of elimination.

The Stars came into the postseason as the West's first wild card and are up 3-2 in the best-of-seven series over the two-time defending Central Division champs. Dallas will have a chance Monday night at home in Game 6 to join Colorado and Columbus as the latest lower seed coming through in the opening round.

Jason Dickinson also scored twice, Tyler Seguin had a goal and an assist, and Jamie Benn had three assists. The Stars have scored at least five goals in back-to-back playoff games for the ninth time in franchise history, the first since Games 3 and 4 of the 1991 conference finals when this team was still in Minnesota.
