The Red Wings are 10-42 in their last 52 road games and 10-26 in their last 36 Thursday games. The Stars are 5-2 in their last 7 games following a win and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Red Wings last 5 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Stars last 5 overall. The Red Wings are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Dallas and 2-6 in the last 8 meetings.

The Detroit Red Wings look a lot like the team from last season, and that's a club that can't find consistent offensive success and is near the bottom in defensive numbers as well. The Dallas Stars haven't missed a beat through three games and are currently first in the league in goals per game and power play percentage. Small sample size, but the numbers indicate this being another win for the Stars. I'll lay the PL for max betting value.
