The Dallas Stars seem like somewhat of a strange underdog in Tuesday night’s game as they are the 2nd worst team in the West. Rick Bowness’ squad is up against the #4 team Chicago.
It’s not like Dallas is doing anything to exude confidence in themselves right now, going 2-6-2 over their last 10. Chicago just gone done with a three game battle vs. Tampa Bay.
Chicago didn’t play horrible against the Lightning, losing in OT Thursday, winning Friday, and taking a 3-0 lead before giving up six straight on Sunday.
Battling with the 1st place team in the division either wears the ‘Hawks down for their two game trip to Dallas or has them well prepped to face a lesser team. Chicago swept a series in Dallas earlier this season.
Chicago has some value at +115 against a Dallas that has lost 11 of their last 13 games. Since a two game series with Dallas in early February, the Blackhawks have scored points in 9 of 14 games.
The Stars offense has been held to 2 goals or less in 3 of the last 5, meaning Chicago may not have to get many to get the W on Tuesday night.
The Stars do have some momentum coming into Tuesday’s game, following a recent 5-0 win over Columbus and dropping a 3-4 game to the Predators in OT.
8 goals in two games is a lot for the #21 Dallas offense putting in just 2.8 goals/game. They were held to 2 goals or less in 5 of 6 games prior however. The Stars face a defense in disarray however.
If Kevin Lankinen starts for Chicago, he’s coming off a 6 goal allowed performance last Friday. Malcolm Subban is the Hawks’ backup, and he’s given up 8 goals in his last two starts.
That’s not saying the Stars don’t have their own issues in net. 7 of Anton Khubodin’s last 8 decisions have been losses. Jake Oettinger is the better option for the Stars in this one.

Free Chicago Blackhawks vs. Dallas Stars NHL Prediction:
Chicago already has two wins in Dallas this year, granted both were in OT and each was low scoring at 2-1. That still gives a lot of value to the Blackhawks in Tuesday’s matchup.
One thing you do worry about is Chicago’s struggles in net lately. Lankinen started the season great, but is starting to show some rookie struggles. Subban is very hit or miss.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Blackhawks +115
