Well, the Dallas Stars didn’t have the best start to this season, but they seem to have put all that behind them. Meanwhile Vancouver fans sigh as the Canucks have hit the skids after raising expectations on their season only to dash them once again.
No doubt the Stars aim to continue their recent success when they meet the Canucks for the opening of a four-game homestand, and after beating the Canucks on the road.
The Canucks head to Dallas after losing a heartbreaking overtime game to the Colorado Avalanche by the score of 5-4.
On the year the Canucks are now 10-7-4, which puts them in 3rd place in the Pacific Division.
It would seem Vancouver’s fortunes’ largely rely on the game play of Elias Pettersson, who has recorded 25 points and 17 assists on the year.
That’s not to say their offensive output is entirely up to the young Swede. In fact the Canucks The Canucks had a solid offensive outing in the loss to Colorado. But they will need a bounce back game to restore some confidence and find their winning ways again.
It’s hard to figure this recent swoon, despite limited depth at forward, Canucks defenseman Alex Edler showed grit in scoring late in the third period on Saturday against the Avalanche.
At net, the Canucks have also received decent goal play from both of their goalies Thatcher Demko is 5-2-1 with a goals against average of 2.50 on the season while the Canucks’ other goalie Jacob Markstrom is 5-5-3 on the year with a 2.59 goals against average.
But as any Canucks fan will tell you, Vancouver just finds a way to lose.
On the road last week, the Stars followed up a 4-2 victory against Vancouver with a 5-4 overtime triumph over Edmonton, extending their winning streak to three games.
With the win against Edmonton, the Stars are now 11-8-2 on the season which is good enough for 4th place in the Central Division.
While Dallas had yet to announce its starting goaltender, but Anton Khudobin, who turned aside 30 shots in the win over Edmonton, will likely get the start.
Free Vancouver Canucks vs. Dallas Stars NHL Prediction:
So with Vancouver apparently slumping and Dallas on a winning streak as they start a homestand, you have to like Dallas, right? Wrong. Going on the road is just what the Canucks need right now, especially a non-Canadian city.
In Hockey mad Canadian cities slumping teams feel the pressure like now where else. A game on the road against a non-divisional team is the prefect setting for Vancouver’s potentially explosive talent to find their legs again.
