Joe Pavelski leads Dallas with 17 goals, John Klingberg has 22 assists and Denis Gurianov has 99 shots on goal.

The Red Wings are 9-45 in their last 54 road games and 30-83 in their last 113 overall. The Stars are 6-14 in their last 20 home games and 8-21 in their last 29 overall. The under is 11-4-3 in Red Wings last 18 overall. The over is 1-0-3 in Stars last 4 overall. The Red Wings are 0-6 in the last 6 meetings in Dallas and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The home team is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.
The Detroit Red Wings have been able to find wins here and there, but they've been downright awful on the road dating back to last season and they don't cash enough tickets in the underdog role to be a threat here. The Dallas Stars have gotten too much respect from oddsmakers this season and don't win to justify some of these prices, but this is a spot they should be able to get the job done. Give me the Stars and the PL for max betting value.
