The Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators meet Thursday in NHL action at the Bridgestone Arena.
The Dallas Stars need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Dallas Stars are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 23.1 percent of their power play opportunities. Joe Pavelski leads Dallas with 15 goals, John Klingberg has 16 assists and Denis Gurianov has 80 shots on goal. Defensively, the Dallas Stars are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 76.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Anton Khudobin has allowed 43 goals on 461 shots faced and Jake Oettinger has allowed 36 goals on 395 shots.
The Nashville Predators look to build on their six-game winning streak. The Nashville Predators are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 20.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Filip Forsberg leads Nashville with 11 goals, Roman Josi has 17 assists and Viktor Arvidsson has 116 shots on goal.

The Stars are 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 6-20 in their last 26 overall. The Predators are 10-4 in their last 14 Thursday games and 6-0 in their last 6 overall. The under is 2-0-2 in Stars last 4 road games. The under is 6-2-1 in Predators last 9 overall. The Stars are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings. The underdog is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The over is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Dallas Stars continue to pile up the losses and for some reason continue to get these odd prices where oddsmakers are showing them respect. Only the Buffalo Sabres have lost more money this season than the Stars. The Nashville Predators are showing an improved effort on the offensive end as of late and are riding a six-game winning streak. These prices with the Stars are getting weird if we're being honest. Give me the Predators and the even money.
