The Detroit Red Wings and Dallas Stars meet Tuesday in NHL action at the American Airlines Center.
The Detroit Red Wings need a win after losing three of their last four games. The Detroit Red Wings are averaging two goals per game and are scoring on 8.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Bobby Ryan leads Detroit with four goals, Filip Zadina has four assists and Dylan Larkin has 23 shots on goal. Defensively, the Detroit Red Wings are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 75 percent of their opponents power plays. Thomas Greiss has given up eight goals on 98 shots faced and Jonathan Bernier has allowed 10 goals on 90 shots.
The Dallas Stars look for another win to build on their 2-0 record. The Dallas Stars are averaging five goals per game and are scoring on 62.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Joe Pavelski leads Dallas with three goals, John Klingberg has four assists and Denis Gurianov has 10 shots on goal. Defensively, the Dallas Stars are allowing one goal per game and are killing 100 percent of their opponents power plays. Anton Khudobin has allowed two goals on 51 shots faced.
The Red Wings are 10-41 in their last 51 road games and 12-45 in their last 57 overall. The Stars are 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite and 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The under is 6-2-1 in Red Wings last 9 road games. The over is 5-2-1 in Stars last 8 games as a favorite. The Red Wings are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Dallas and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings.
This type of plus money is always intriguing and I try to make a case for the big underdog, but the Red Wings provide very little positives, and they look a lot like the team from a year ago. The Dallas Stars have only played two games, but they've looked great in both and should mop the floor with the Red Wings if that sort of effort continues. I want nothing to do with the Red Wings right now. Give me the Stars and the PL for max betting value.
