Dallas Stars vs Chicago Blackhawks prediction

I considered the Blackhawks and the plus money given the home ice and the rest advantage, but they're a banged up team going nowhere with losses in 7 of their last 8 tries. The Dallas Stars should be eager to rebound from a rough showing last night to the Predators, and they've owned the Blackhawks in past meetings. The Stars have not only won four straight games against the Blackhawks, but they've outscored them 22-8 in those wins. The Stars have won 9 of the last 10 games against the Blackhawks overall. Give me the Stars and the PL for max betting value.
