Through 78 games, the Stars have scored 225 goals, giving them an average of 2.83. This output gives them a rank of 21st among NHL teams. On defense, Dallas is the 16th-ranked unit, giving up 3.0 goals per contest. So far, the Stars have played the 8th toughest schedule in the league. And, when taking into account Dallas's scoring margin relative to the quality of their competition, they come in with a power ranking of 18th in the NHL.
Through 68 games, the Seattle Kraken goal and overall scoring leader is Jared McCann with 45 points. He has reached his mark of 26 goals, on a shooting percentage of 14.4%. So far, 31.0% of his goals have come during power play time. Behind him is Yanni Gourde, who has 26 assists to go along with his 18 goals. However, when on the ice, the Kraken are -13 in scoring differential. Seattle's top goalie is Philipp Grubauer, who is giving up an average of 3.09 goals per game.
Through 78 games, Dallas' leading goal scorer is Jason Robertson. With his 38 goals and 35 assists, he is the second in overall points, coming in at 73. On the season, he is turning 18.6% of his shots into goals. In addition, the Stars have benefited from the strong play of Joe Pavelski, who is the team's overall leader in points. In Dallas's 78 games, he has come up with 27 goals on a shooting percentage of 13.0%. While on the ice, his offensive production has led to a plus-minus rating of +9.0. Dallas's top goalie is Jake Oettinger, who is giving up an average of 2.57 goals per game. In his 45 games played, he has turned in 25 quality starts, giving him a quality start percentage above the league average.
In Seattle's 76 games, the over has hit in over half of their games, going 42-30-4. So far, taking the over when the Kraken are playing away from home has been a good bet with an over-under record of 20-15-2. On the season, 61.0% of Seattle's games have gone for at least 6 goals or more, with 44.0% of the scoring coming from the Kraken. Coming into this game, the Stars have an over-under record of 34-42-2. When playing at home, the over is hitting less than half the time, going 17-20. On the season, 46.0% of Dallas's games have gone for at least 6 goals or more, with 51.0% of the scoring coming from the Stars. Heading into this game, the over-under betting line sits at 6 goals. I expect Dallas and Seattle to finish below that number as each team is near the bottom of the league in goals scored. Look for this to be a low-scoring game.
