The Dallas Stars and Calgary Flames meet Saturday in NHL action at the Scotiabank Saddledome. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
The Dallas Stars are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 24.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Jason Robertson leads Dallas with 39 goals, Miro Heiskanen has 47 assists and Joe Pavelski has 163 shots on goal. Defensively, the Dallas Stars are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 83 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Jake Oettinger has allowed 123 goal on 1,520 shots faced, and Scott Wedgewood has given up 48 goals on 551 shots.
The Calgary Flames are averaging 3 goals per game and are scoring on 19.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Tyler Toffoli leads Calgary with 28 goals, Elias Lindholm has 38 assists and Nazem Kadri has 229 shots on goal. Defensively, the Calgary Flames are allowing 3 goals per game and are killing 81.7 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Jacob Markstrom has allowed 132 goals on 1,245 shots faced, and Dan Vladar has given up 67 goals on 621 shots.
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.
