Stars vs Bruins Betting Prediction

Boston comes into this matchup looking to snap their four game losing streak and they will be at home, where they are 17-7-5 this season. The Bruins were in great position to beat the Kings in their last game, but they allowed a goal late in the third and couldn’t convert a power play in overtime. Dallas has won three of their last four games, with the loss coming in overtime to Edmonton, who has been one of the best teams in the NHL. The Stars are 17-6-4 on the road and they are one of the highest scoring teams in the league, but I am taking Boston here. The Bruins have struggled recently, but they are still a great team that is very good at home. Take the Bruins here.
