Dallas Stars vs New York Rangers prediction

The Dallas Stars and plus money is intriguing given what they've done this season and the fact they've been great on the road. However, the Rangers aren't a team you should be looking to step in front of, as they've won 7 straight games and are firing on all cylinders. The Rangers are also 19-7-0 at home this season. The Stars are also coming off back to back overtime games, so there could be some tired legs here with so much recent hockey played a couple of days ago. The price is cheap. I'll ride the hot hand with the Rangers.
