The Dallas Stars have been a so-so road team so far this season (10-13-2) but they’ve got a tough test Thursday heading into Bridgestone Arena to take on the Predators. Nashville is solid as usual on their own ice this year (17-10-0) but they have faltered lately dropping three straight at home.
Dallas has climbed into 6th place in the Western Conference behind a 5-game winning streak. The Stars’ strong run has come with 7 of their last 8 games coming at home. The one road game during that span however was a 3-1 win here in Nashville on Saturday.
The Stars have a great chance of repeating the win vs. the Predators thanks to their strong goaltending and defensive play lately. Dallas has allowed 2 goals or less in 6 of the last 7. The Predators defense has also been stellar recently so an ‘under’ of 5.5 is looking like a strong play.
The Predators got off 39 shots on Saturday in the loss to Dallas but they were stonewalled by the Stars’ backup Anton Khubodin. What makes the loss to the Stars even worse was that Dallas was fatigued playing on a B2B. Dalls will have had 2 nights off ahead of Wednesday’s contest, does that put the Preds at risk for another upset?
Pekka Rinne can keep Nashville in it vs. the Stars as he’s allowed just 6 goals total in his last three games. Before this three game stretch, Rinne did have a little rough patch however allowing 14 goals over that span. The Dallas offense overall isn’t that explosive, but they are rested coming into this contest.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Stars are 5-0 their last five overall
- Stars are 2-7 their last 9 on 2 days rest
- Predators are 4-1 their last five overall
- Predators are 65-32 their last 97 home games
Free Dallas Stars vs. Nashville Predators NHL Prediction:
It’s hard to believe Nashville drops two in a row to Dallas on their own ice. The Predators have also dropped games to Florida (-214 favorites) and Winnipeg (-164) at home prior to the all-star break. There’s not a whole lot of value on the Predators with the line…and the way the Stars have been playing defense.
