Woefully, Dallas is only shutting down teams at a 79.6% rate on the penalty kill, which in return ranks 19th across the league. Further detrimental to their potential success Sunday, Dallas is a very poor 1-5 on the road following a win this season.
St. Louis Blues
St. Louis is lighting up the NHL in their last ten games, going 7-1-2 and claiming 16 points out of 20 possible in the process.
Offensively, The Blues are scoring an efficient 3.5 times per an average of 32.1 shots, which ranks 5th and 14th, respectfully. Additionally, they’re powerplay ranks among the leagues best, at third while owning a staggering 29.7 PP%.
Defensively speaking, they’re currently allowing 2.7 goals, on a regrettable 32 shots per tilt. Per NHL rankings, they own 16th for goals against, and 10th for shots against.
However, The Blues carry a dominant force on the penalty kill as they rank top 10(8th), with a 83.2 PK%. Important to note, unstoppable force Vladimir Tarasenko is slated to miss this game due to protocol.

Free Dallas Stars vs. St. Louis Blues NHL Prediction
Both squads enter this tilt with momentum, however The Blues are clearly the far superior team per stats and rankings. That is, when they’re full strength, but unfortunately are missing two defensemen and Tarasenko due to illness.
That being said, Dallas hasn’t won a road game since November and is 1-5 on the road while following a win all year long. On top of that, Dallas is on no rest, as they played The Penguins Saturday.
As these angles lead towards the home team winning, its critical to know St. Louis hasn’t won a Sunday game in their last 6 attempts.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: UNDER 5.5
After weighing all the options, the moneyline is to risky as these squads buck so many trends in similar fashion. However, one commonality is a plethora of unders between these foes.
To boot, the last four times these squads faced-off, the under was cashed with ease. And like aforementioned, key scorer Tarasenko missing this game should deplete St. Louis offensive output.
