The Dallas Stars will have their backs against the wall just moments from now when the puck drops in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final, but it sounds like the Stars don't intend to go quietly.

On Sunday, Stars captain Jamie Benn was asked about the criticism the team faced after a 'lifeless' performance in Game 5 in which they were dominated by the Edmonton Oilers, and Benn faced it head on. Benn admitted that the strength of the Oilers power play has been a point of concern and has resulted in the Stars perhaps being a little more cautious, but it sounds like that will be out the window come Sunday night.

"We wanna go out there and play aggressive," admitted Benn. "It's not always easy staying out of the box with some of their players but we're gonna do our best. 5v5 we wanna play a little more aggressive."

Benn and the Stars will definitely need to show more life than they did in Game 5 after letting the Oilers control much of the pace on their way to perhaps their most dominant win of the playoffs thus far, defeating the Stars by a final score of 3-1.

The Stars failed to get to Oilers goaltender Stuart Skinner at all, with Skinner stopping 19 of the 20 shots he faced on his way to a .950 save percentage, and that will need to change tonight if the Stars are to have any hope of keeping this series alive for one more game.
