The Dallas Stars are heading to Music City to take on the Nashville Predators at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Tuesday.
The Stars are coming off a high-scoring loss in Colorado on Saturday where they fell 6-5. They won four out of the six matchups with the Predators last year including two in Nashville.
The Predators split their home and home matches against the Blackhawks to start the season, winning in Nashville on Saturday.
These two both want this game as this could play a large role in determining the fate of the Central Division.
The Stars have been playing some spectacular offense to start the year and can score with any team in hockey. They rank 3rd in the league in scoring so far with 4.5 goals per game.
The problem is that they have as much trouble keeping teams from scoring as the ease they have in it.
Things seem uncertain as far as goaltending with starter Antii Niemi being pulled in the second period of the last game after allowing five goals on 20 shots.
Kari Lehtonen performed much better and took the loss, although only allowing one goal. Lehtonen will more than likely get the start against the Predators.
After winning the season opener against the Blackhawks in Nashville, they lost the next portion of the home and home when they went to Chicago.
Nashville has historically been a very tough team to beat at home, but Dallas seems to have their number at times.
The Predators are about a middle-of-the-road team statistically so far this year.
They average three goals scored per game which is 16th in the league and allow 3.5 per game which is 19th. Pekka Rinne is expected to get the start at goaltender on Tuesday.

Free Dallas Stars vs. Nashville Predators NHL Hockey Prediction
The Stars offense has been nothing short of great so far. However, they have lots of issues on the defensive end that they will need to remedy if they want to contend in the Central Division this year.
Luckily, it’s a long season and they have some time to get it figured out.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: OVER
Unfortunately for the Stars, they do not have a lot of time to fix those issues before this game.
Although they can score, so can the Predators. The Nashville advantage at goaltender and on defense, along with home ice, should allow the Preds to win.
