Dallas has stumbled a tad lately going 1-2-2 in their last five games overall and they have lost six straight games to Chicago getting outscored 26-9 over that span.

The Dallas Stars had been playing some good hockey until their recent hiccup the last few games – they have won six of their last seven games away from home. Dallas has 14 goals in its last six games – six in a win over Anaheim – not exactly stellar numbers other than that one game. Dallas`s best offensive weapon Tyler Seguin sat out their last game with concussion-like symptoms and could be held out once again Tuesday.

Forward Ryan Garbutt has three goals and two assists in the past three games for Dallas, Antoine Roussel has three points in three games and Rich Peverley has three points in his last four games but Jamie Benn is pointless in three games, Sergei Gonchar is pointless in four and Alex Goligoski hasn`t registered a point in six games. Together the Stars average 2.68 goals per game – not bad until their recent slump.

Goaltender Kari Lehtonen has been terrific lately but hasn`t been getting the Wins. Lehtonen is 0-2-0 with a 1.40 GAA and .948 save percentage – he will need some offensive support!

The Chicago Blackhawks are definitely rounding into form – 8-2-0 in their last 10 games and they have just one regulation loss on home ice all year. The offense is clicking and the defense is doing its parts as well – they are the top offense in the game and are getting contributions from everyone on the ice.
Patrick Kane has been on fire. He had a 12-game point streak snapped in the most recent game against the Stars but has nine goals and 10 assists in the past 15 games. Patrick Sharp has four and three assists during the last four there, Marion Hossa scored seven of his 11 goals in his last 11 games, including two during Chicago’s 5-2 win at Dallas on Nov. 9 and Duncan Keith has six points in four games – just a sample of the “Hot“ Hawks on the roster.

Corey Crawford has really picked up his game as well – 3-0-0 in his last three games with a 0.97 GAA and .967 save percentage. Crawford has a 1.37 goals-against average while winning five straight against the Stars. He has been off for two games and should be back between the pipes Tuesday night.

Betting Prediction

A few trends to consider:
• DAL are 5-21 in their last 26 vs. Central.
• Under is 8-3 in DAL last 11 vs. Central.
• Over is 7-3-1 in DAL last 11 road games.
• CHI are 10-2 in their last 12 Tue. games.
• Over is 9-3 in CHI last 12 overall.
• Over is 9-3 in CHI last 12 vs. Western Conference.
• Over is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings in Chicago.
• DAL are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings in Chicago.

The Chicago Blackhawks are simply on a tear right now and have been virtually untouchable on home ice so far this year. Expect the same to ring true Tuesday night – especially if Tyler Seguin is forced to sit. Chicago is money on home ice and they have owned the Stars in recent years. You don`t have to like the price but you have to love the Hawks to get it done Tuesday.

Pick: Chicago Blackhawks -209 (Too steep? Take the puck line then)
