Predators hope to bounce back at home vs. Stars

Coming off a lopsided defeat, the Nashville Predators are looking to regain the advantage when they host the Dallas Stars in a pivotal Game 5 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series on Saturday afternoon.

The Stars' 5-1 victory in Game 4 on Wednesday tied the series at two games apiece, reviving Dallas' chances of an upset of the Central Division champions.

"It's huge. There's no other way to say it," Dallas coach Jim Montgomery said of the Game 4 result, adding that "there's such a small margin for error" when a team faces a 3-1 deficit in a series.
