The Stars are 13-6 in their last 19 Saturday games and 5-2 in their last 7 road games. The Flames are 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 21-8 in their last 29 Saturday games. The over is 8-1-1 in Stars last 10 overall. The under is 4-0 in Flames last 4 home games. The Stars are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Calgary and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings.

I get the Calgary Flames are at home, and they need to start piling up the wins if they're going to sneak into the playoffs. However, the Dallas Stars are the better team no matter how you slice it, and they've had success on the road as of late. Also, the Flames haven't taken care of home ice like they probably should. The value is with the Stars as it's hard to turn down plus money with the better team regardless of sport. Give me the Stars.
