With two straight road defeats already under their belt, the Dallas Stars (3rd in Central Division) continue their five-date road trip with a visit of the Florida Panthers (6th in Atlantic), who have won six of their previous nine games…

Stars Lose Second In Row

The newest five-date road trip of the Dallas Stars (28-22-5) went 0-1-1 following the first two fixtures after the team followed up Thursday’s 3-2 overtime loss at the Nashville Predators with a 3-2 defeat against the Arizona Coyotes at Gila River Arena on Saturday. Brett Ritchie (4 goals, 6 points this year) and Alexander Radulov (15 goals, 44 points) scored in the last three-and-a-half minutes of the game when the ‘Yotes were already leading 3-0, as Dallas lost for the second time following a five-game winning run prior. The Stars are 3rd in the Central Division with 61 points from 55 outings.

With goalie Ben Bishop (19-12-2 on the year with a 2.30 GAA and a .924 save percentage) still recovering from an upper-body injury, back-up Anton Khudobin made his second consecutive start, turning away a total of 36 shots. He is 9-10-3 for the season with a 2.45 GAA and a .924 save percentage, and has recorded a 3-2-0 career total against the Florida Panthers with a 2.43 GAA and a .930 save percentage. The Stars, meanwhile, are 3rd in least goals scored per game (2.58), 2nd in least goals allowed on average (2.55), 14th in power play (20.8%) and 6th in penalty kill (82.8%).

Cats Split Back-To-Back

The Florida Panthers (23-23-8) collected two points from a couple of outings during the weekend, splitting a back-to-back set in a matter of 23 hours. After extending their winning run to two contests with a 5-4 overtime victory against the Washington Capitals at Capital One Arena on Saturday, the Cats recorded their third loss in the past nine matchups (6-3-0) following a 5-2 defeat at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning at BB&T Center the following evening. The Panthers are sitting 6th in the Atlantic Division with 54 points from 54 fixtures.

Goalie Roberto Luongo (12-12-1 on the year with a 3.19 GAA and a .895 save percentage) made 26 saves in Washington, adding nine more in relief to James Reimer (10-10-5 for the season with an .898 save percentage) versus Tampa Bay. Luongo is 15-8-3 against the Dallas Stars historically with a 2.29 GAA and a .926 save percentage. The Panthers, meanwhile, are 13th in most goals scored per game (3.07), 3rd in most goals given up on average (3.43), 2nd best in power play (26.5%) and 12th in penalty kill (80.8%).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Stars have done well in Sunrise lately, winning five of the last seven trips. Still, their current road form is anything but reliable, with the team having dropped three of its previous four away decisions. Besides, the Panthers have been playing quite well lately, bagging six victories in their last eight contests against teams with a winning record, and are 7-2 in their past nine outings after netting no more than two snipes in their previous game.

Prediction: Florida Panthers

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Nine of the past 13 meetings between the Panthers and the Stars in Florida have finished on the low-scoring side. So, do bank on this one to do exactly the same. Even more so given the fact that 18 of the previous 27 road contests of the Stars have already delivered just a modest amount of strikes, while four of the last five home contests of the Panthers have all been decided within the realm of five markers.

Prediction: Under 5.5
