The Florida Panthers and the Dallas Stars meet in NHL action from the American Airlines Center on Tuesday night.
The Florida Panthers will look to rebound from a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Dallas last time out. Aleksander Barkov leads Florida in scoring with 43 points including a team-high 17 goals and 26 assists while Jonathan Huberdeau has 42 points with 14 goals and a team-leading 28 assists this season. Carter Verhaeghe has 35 points with 17 goals of his own while Patric Hornqvist is on 28 points with 12 goals and 16 assists. MacKenzie Weegar and Keith Yandle have 21 and 18 assists respectively this season on the point for Florida. As a team, Florida is averaging 3.2 goals on 34.3 shots with a 22% success rate on the power play while allowing 2.7 goals on 30.8 shots with an 80% success rate on the PK this season.
The Dallas Stars will look to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to Nashville in their last matchup. Joe Pavelski leads the Stars in scoring with 37 points including team-highs of 15 goals and 22 assists while Roope Hintz has 32 points with 13 goals and 19 assists this season. Jason Robertson has 27 points with 11 goals and 16 assists while John Klingberg has 26 points with 20 apples and Jamie Benn and Miro Heiskanen each have 21 points with a combined 28 assists between the two this season. As a team, Dallas is averaging 2.8 goals on 29.4 shots per game with a 25.8% conversion rate on the power play while allowing 2.5 goals on 27.6 shots against with a 78.3% success rate on the PK this season.
Florida is 11-5 in their last 16 road games and 39-16 in their last 55 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. Dallas is 3-13 in their last 16 home games and 8-21 in their last 29 games overall while the under is 9-3 in their last 12 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600. Florida is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams in Dallas.
I don’t know why I take it so personally, but any time I see the Dallas Stars laying juice this season, I feel offended. All joking aside, I don’t see any reason why the Stars should be favored at home. You could easily make the case that the Stars are the most disappointing team in the NHL this season after reaching the cup final last year. Florida is one of the top teams in the NHL right now and side by side, I think the Panthers are just too much for Dallas. I’ll gladly take the Panthers and the cheap price here.
