Stars’ Hintz, Bishop, Comeau and Faksa ‘unfit to play’ in Game 5

Dallas Stars forwards Roope Hintz, Radek Faksa, and Blake Comeau have been deemed “unfit to play” in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final, along with goaltender Ben Bishop.

Hintz left Game 4 after taking a hit from Tyler Johnson in the second period and did not return. In 25 games this post-season, the 23-year-old has 13 points.

Faksa will miss his seventh straight game with an undisclosed injury, while Comeau is out for his second straight game. Bishop has been sidelined since Game 5 against the Colorado Avalanche.

Goalie Anton Khudobin missed the Stars’ morning skate as Jake Oettinger was present at practice but the team confirmed that Khudobin would get the start.

The Stars trail the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 in their series. Puck drop for Game 5 is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. ET on Sportsnet.
