The Dallas Stars need to find out if their recent woes are a performance issue, or due to the fact of playing 5 of their last 7 on the road. The Stars are still in a good spot in the #1 wild card however.
Carolina has played very well lately, going 7-3 over their last 10 to climb into 2nd in the Eastern Conference wild card spot. Obviously Saturday’s game is important for both squads.
The Hurricanes have won 4 of 5, mostly behind their defensive prowess. Carolina has given up 7 total goals over those last 5 outings and have climbed up to the 6th ranking in goals/against in the league.
Carolina has such great defense because they don’t give you opportunities, ranking #1 in the NHL in SOG against at 28.2 per game. Not a great matchup for a Dallas offense that is struggling to score goals.
The O/U for Saturday’s game is 5.5 and could be shaping up to be a low scoring affair. The Stars were shut out in back to back games last Thursday and Friday but have put up 8 goals in the two games since – both at home.
The Stars are 2-4-1 their last 7, but 5 of those games were on the road. Dallas looked solid on both ends of the ice their last time out scoring a 5-2 win over a streaking St. Louis squad. Can that continue Saturday?

Free Carolina Hurricanes vs. Dallas Stars NHL Prediction:
Dallas has been a much better team at home but being on the road doesn’t seem to bother Carolina who has won 6 of their last 7 going away.
