Dillon, Nemeth game-time decisions

April, 24, 2014
FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff said Thursday morning that defenseman Brenden Dillon and Patrik Nemeth are game-time decisions for Friday's Game 5 against the Ducks.

Dillon, who has been out since April 11 with a lower body injury, skated again Thursday. Ruff said prior to Game 4 that Dillon was close, so he's even closer now. Nemeth has an upper body injury.

If both play, the Stars could go with the three pairs that they used on the blue line for most of the games down the stretch in the regular season:

Alex Goligoski-Trevor Daley
Jordie Benn-Dillon
Nemeth-Sergei Gonchar

That would leave Kevin Connauton as a scratch, but that's just a guess and only if both Dillon and Nemeth are ready to go.
