Joe Pavelski leads the Stars in scoring with 27 points including team-highs of 14 goals and 13 assists while John Klingberg has 5 goals and 12 assists in 2nd place on the team this season. As a team, Dallas is averaging 2.8 goals per game on 28.8 shots per game with a 24.4% success rate on the power play while allowing 2.6 goals per game on 27.7 shots against per game with a 77.4% success rate on the penalty kill this season.

Dallas is 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 5-16 in their last 21 games overall while the over is 5-1-2 in their last 8 games overall. Detroit is 17-35 in their last 52 home games and 19-62 in their last 81 games overall while the over is 6-2-1 in their last 9 games overall. The home team is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.

It’s hard to make a case for either side here, as Dallas is the better team, but they haven’t been playing like it while Detroit’s just a bad team and it’s hard to make a case for them in most spots even with plus money. Instead, I’m going to side with the under as this game just reeks of a 3-2 final whichever way you slice it so I’ll back the under in this spot.
