Stars to play AHL MVP Mavrik Bourque vs. Oilers in Game 6

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — American Hockey League MVP Mavrik Bourque will be in the Dallas Stars' lineup on Sunday for Game 6 of Western Conference final against the Edmonton Oilers.

The Stars, after being shut out until very late in Game 5, are hoping for a spark from the top prospect in the organization, who led all scorers in the AHL this past regular season.

Bourque replaces Ty Dellandrea, who has been in and out of the lineup all playoffs.

The 22-year-old Bourque, who made his NHL debut on April 6 against the Chicago Blackhawks, had 77 points (26 goals, 51 assists) in 71 games this season for the Texas Stars.

Dallas is trying to force a Game 7 on home ice.
