Shane’s Free Pick
The Stars have been better at home and it’s going to be no different in this game. The Golden Knights offense wasn’t good enough in the last game and they are going to really struggle to score again in this game. Dallas will score three or four goals again here and that will be enough to get the job done. Back the Stars on the money line.
