The Dallas Stars look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Dallas Stars are averaging 1.9 goals per game and are scoring on 8.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Roope Hintz leads Dallas with seven goals, Tyler Seguin has six assists and Alexander Radulov has 37 shots on goal. Defensively, the Dallas Stars are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 82.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Ben Bishop has given up 23 goals on 273 shots faced and Anton Khudobin has allowed 12 goals on 121 shots. The Dallas Stars have allowed three or less goals in each of their last six games.

The Canadiens are 4-0 in their last 4 games as an underdog, 4-0 in their last 4 vs. Western Conference and 14-2 in their last 16 Saturday games. The Stars are 5-2 in their last 7 games playing on 0 days rest, 3-7 in their last 10 games as a favorite and 2-5 in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference. The over is 4-0 in Canadiens last 4 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 4-1 in Stars last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. The home team is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings. The Canadiens are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Montreal Canadiens have won five of the last seven meetings against the Stars and enter this game with a rest advantage. However, the Dallas Stars are finally getting back on track defensively and the wins are starting to pile up. While the offense is still a concern, you have to like what you've seen from these Stars over the last week and I'm not sure they're a team you should be stepping in front of at the moment. I'll lay the cheap price with the home team.
