The Pacific Division meets the Atlantic Division as the Vegas Golden Knights grapple with the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The Golden Knights enter this game off a 6-3 loss to the Flames on the road, while the Stars are off a 4-1 road win over the Wild.

Win Streak Snapped In Calgary

The Vegas Golden Knights are currently in the 6th spot in the Western Conference and they have a solid seven-point lead over the Minnesota Wild, who are in the 9th spot. Vegas should be in the postseason this year. They had a nice little six-game winning streak going, but that ended with a 6-3 loss to Calgary on the road. The Golden Knights had allowed a total of three goals in their previous four games, but it is hard to stop the Calgary offense on their own ice. Scoring in the loss was Brandon Pirri, which was his 11th of the year, Reilly Smith, which was hie 14th and Mark Stone, which was his 30th. Stone was just signed to an eight-year deal.

Absorbing the loss to the Flames was Malcolm Subban, who allowed five goals on 34 shot attempts to fall to 4-7 with a 3.13 GAA on the year. Marc-Andre Fleury is slated to get the start in this one and he has gone 34-24 with a 2/48 GAA on the year, including 16-10 with a 2.65 GAA on the road. In his career, he has gone 10-5 with a 2.19 GAA against the Stars. The Golden Knights have gone 17-18 on the road and they have averaged 2.77 gpg and have allowed 3.11 gpg in those games. Vegas enters this game ranked 21st in the league in power play conversions at 17.2% and 8th in penalty kill at 81.8%.

Tough To Score On The Stars Right Now

The Dallas Stars are making their push for a playoff spot and they have been led by their play in the crease of late. They enter this game off a 4-1 road win over the Minnesota Wild and have now allowed a total of four goals over their last six games. They have three shutouts over that stretch. Grabbing the win over the Wild was Ben Bishop (24-16 with a 2.05 GAA), who stopped all seven shots he faced before leaving with an injury. He is listed as questionable for this one. Anton Khudobin is slated to get the start and he has gone 13-17 with a 2.57 GAA on the year, including 6-5 with a 2.35 GAA here at home. This will be his first career meeting with the Golden Knights.

The Stars have now won six of their last seven games to move into the 5th spot in the Western Conference playoff standings, but they still have work to do as the Blues (7th spot) have the same amount of points (79) as the stars and they are just five points ahead of Minnesota (9th). Scoring in the win was Radek Faksa (13th), Roope Hintz (8th), Joel L’Esperance (1st of career), and Alexander Radulov, (22nd). Dallas has gone 21-13 here at home for the year and they have averaged 2.88 gpg and have allowed 2.29 gpg in those games. The Stars check in ranked 15th in power play conversions at 19.8% and 5th in penalty kill at 82.7%.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Golden Knights are off a loss to the Calgary Flames, but they had won their previous six games in a row and had outscored their previous four by a count of 14-3. The Stars play well at home, but they are playing this game on no rest and have to travel from Minnesota. The Stars are 29-62 in their last 91 games playing on 0 days rest and the Golden Knights are 4-1 the last five games in this series. Take Vegas to grab a nice road win in this one.

Prediction: Vegas -126

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I like the Under in this one. The Dallas offense will be a bit tired for this one and even when they play with rest, it is not all that good. Vegas has allowed just 2.60 gpg over their last 10 games. The Vegas offense struggles ion the road as they have averaged just 2.77 gpg away from home and the Stars have allowed just 1.80 gpg over their last 10 games and 2.29 gpg at home. The Under is 6-1 in Vegas’ last seven games as a favorite of -110 to -150 and 7-2 in Dallas’ last nine games playing on 0 days rest.

Prediction: Under 5.5
