If you have this in an xml document you can do a select with an xpath like

//tr[count(td) = 5]

if you need to use a regex, it's a bit trickier something like

\<tr[^\<tr]+\<td[^\<tr]+\<td[^\<tr]+\<td[^\<tr]+\<td[^\<tr]+\<td.+\<\/tr\>

Which is basically look for

<tr (something) <td (something) <td (something) <td (something) <td (something) <td (something) </tr>
