During the regular season, the Flames had a strength of schedule rating of 27th in the league.

The Dallas Stars will look to push this first-round series to a game 7, as they stare down elimination. Through 82 games, the Stars have scored 238 goals, giving them an average of 2.84. This output gives them a rank of 21st among NHL teams. On defense, Dallas is the 13th ranked unit, giving up 2.98 goals per contest.

And, when taking into account Dallas's scoring margin relative to the quality of their competition, they come in with a power ranking of 19th in the NHL.
Through 82 games, the Calgary Flames' leading goal scorer is Matthew Tkachuk. With his 62 assists, he is the second in overall points, coming in at 104. On the season, he is turning 16.6% of his shots into goals. In addition, the Flames have benefited from the strong play of Johnny Gaudreau, who is the team's overall leader in points. In Calgary's 82 games, he has come up with 40 goals on a shooting percentage of 15.3%. While on the ice, his offensive production has led to a plus-minus rating of 64.

Heading into game 6, the over-under betting line sits at 5.5 goals. Throughout this series, each team's defenses have had their moments of excellence. In games 4 and 5, it was Calgary's turn, as they held Dallas to just 1 goal. I don't see any reason to fight the trend. I recommend taking the under.
