Coming off a fight-filled, eventful loss the Nashville, the Dallas Stars meet with another Central Division team in the Winnipeg Jets.
The Jets, losers of four straight games, are in desperate need of a win and will look to get one at home against Dallas.
This Dallas Stars team probably isn’t making the playoffs, considering it plays in a very tough Central Division. However, the team certainly is keeping things interesting from game to game.
The Stars aren’t a bad offensive team. They average over 2.8 goals per game, 13th in the NHL, and have some quality forwards that create good chances every night.
Center Tyler Seguin has been having a wonderful year, scoring 20 goals along with 34 assists. In his last five games, he has two goals and three assists. Captain Jamie Benn has been playing extremely well, also. He has 18 goals and 33 assists, including three and three over his previous five games.
It’s the defense that has done the Stars in this season. Dallas ranks second to last in goals allowed per game at 3.2 and the team can’t hold leads. Case and point: Dallas had a 2-0 lead after one period in Nashville and ended up losing 5-3.
If the Stars are going to win this game, the team defense has to be much better than usual.
The only team worse in the goals against stat than Dallas happens to be Winnipeg. The team is dead last in goals against on the year at 185. While the offense has been wonderful at times, the Jets suffer from Dallas Stars syndrome and can’t seem to hold onto leads.
Speaking of the offense, it has been solid all season. The Jets score about 2.8 goals per game and are led by some very talented forwards, including Mark Schiefele and Patrik Laine.
Center Mark Schiefele continues to have the best season of his career. He has 25 goals and 28 assists, including two goals over his last five games.
However, both of those goals came in a win in the last meeting against Dallas and, in the team’s four-game losing streak, he doesn’t have a single point.
Laine, the rookie, has proven to be the right draft pick for Winnipeg. He has 23 goals and 21 assists on the year, including three assists over his last five games.
Like Schiefele, this four-game losing streak has affected him as well, and he hasn’t had a goal in that time frame.
NHL Betting Trends:
- The OVER is 4-1 in Winnipeg’s last five games
- The Total has gone OVER in three of Dallas’ last five games
Free Dallas Stars vs. Winnipeg Jets NHL Hockey Prediction:
I like the Stars in this one. Winnipeg simply hasn’t looked good on either side of the ice over the last four games, especially against the Colorado Avalanche in a 5-2 loss. I like Dallas to get the W on the road here.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Dallas ML
Despite losing to Nashville, the Stars looked feisty and aggressive in that game, finding a way to score some good goals against a decent Predators defense. Winnipeg has looked shaky recently and will have some trouble against this Stars squad. The Dallas money line is my bet here.
