Khudobin played just over 11 minutes Sunday, making five saves on as many shots, in a 4-1 loss to St. Louis.
Ben Bishop started the game but left at the midway point of the final period, paving the way for Khudobin's rare postseason relief appearance. The Stars backup netminder was perfect tending twine, but it was too little too late, as the Blues had already put four by Bishop to seal the win and force a deciding Game 7. All signs point to Bishop returning to the net for the winner-take-all matchup, set to go down Tuesday.
Khudobin stopped 26 of 32 shots in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Blackhawks.
The 32-year-old hadn't given up more than three goals in a game since Feb. 19, but with a playoff spot already locked up, the whole Stars roster -- or at least the ones who made the trip to Chicago -- seemed to phone this one in. Khudobin will likely head to the bench Saturday in favor of Ben Bishop (lower body), leaving Khudobin with a 2.57 GAA and .923 save percentage on the season -- the latter being his best mark since 2013-14.

The 32-year-old yielded a goal at even strength, on the power play and with the opposition shorthanded. While the latter proved to be the difference, it was just a fantastic goal from Jared McCann.

No. 1 netminder Ben Bishop curiously took to the ice ahead of morning skate, which was a not-so-subtle hint that Khudobin will need to start for the second straight game. Khudobin is 13-15-3 with a 2.54 GAA and .925 save percentage on the season; the ratios over 35 games are serviceable, and it's clear that Stars coach Jim Montgomery has a lot of faith in the backup netminder to help the team secure a playoff berth.
Khudobin allowed two goals on 37 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Golden Knights on Friday.
Khudobin played well, but counterpart Marc-Andre Fleury has been unworldly with six straight wins. Despite the loss, Khudobin is 3-2-0 with a .939 save percentage in six games.

Khudobin stopped 14 of 15 shots after replacing the injured Ben Bishop (lower body) in the second period of Thursday's 4-1 win over the Wild.
The win will go to Bishop, as the Stars scored a trio of goals before his departure in the second. Khudobin gave up a power-play goal to Jason Zucker soon after coming in, but he shut the door from there to help the team notch a critical victory. One of the league's most reliable backups, Khudobin was likely already scheduled to start Friday's home matchup with Vegas, but Bishop's injury makes that a near certainty.
