The Chicago Blackhawks and Dallas Stars face off on Friday in an NHL showdown at the American Airlines Center. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Blackhawks vs Stars prediction.

Blackhawks Finally Picked up a Win

The Blackhawks faced off against the Winnipeg Jets in the last game and they were able to secure the 2-1 victory in overtime. Connor Bedard is the star of the show and he scored two goals in the last game. The Blackhawks on the season are averaging 2.41 goals while their defense is giving up 3.62 goals per game. Even though they are coming off a win, they are one of the worst teams in hockey. The offense and defense are both ranked 30th in the league. Connor Bedard has scored 15 goals and added 17 assists so far this season. Following this back-to-back set against Dallas, the Blackhawks will meet the Predators.

Stars Look to Bounce Back

The Blues faced off against the Stars in the last game and Dallas really looked bad. The Stars scored a goal but it wasn’t enough as they ended up losing by a goal. Jason Robertson scored the only goal for the Stars. The Stars on the season are averaging 3.42 goals while their defense is giving up 3.06 goals per game. The offense is ranked 8th in the league and they need to attack a weak Blackhawks defense. If they can get the first couple of goals, that is going to put a lot of pressure on. Dallas will take on Montreal and Colorado after this back-to-back set against Chicago.

Blackhawks vs Stars Betting Prediction

The Blackhawks on the season are averaging only 2.41 goals per game and they are going ot really struggle to score here. The Stars are averaging 3.42 goals and they are going ot have no issue running up the score here. Look for the Stars to score at least two goals in the first period and they aren’t every going to look back. The only thing the Blackhawks really have is Connor Bedard and he’s not going to do enough here. This is going to be a comfortable victory. Back the Stars on the puck line.
