Stars Hope to Avoid Third-Straight Loss

Tyler Seguin Dallas Stars NHL

The Dallas Stars had been enjoying a dominant run in the month February, but that has come to a bit of a halt as the team has dropped back-to-back games heading into Saturday’s date with the Boston Bruins.

Shark Bites
  • Three of the previous four meetings between the Stars and Bruins have gone OVER.
  • The Bruins are 3-1 SU in their last four games at Dallas.
  • The Bruins are 7-2 SU in their last nine versus the Western Conference.

Online shop Bovada is presently offering the Stars at -150 in moneyline markets, while the Bruins are on the board at +120. As far as the total is concerned, the shop has OVER 5.5 goals at -115 and UNDER the 5.5 at -115.

The Stars had won four-straight games prior to the recent mini slump and will be happy to return to home ice. The Stars had gone 1-2 on a three-game road trip with losses coming at the St. Louis Blues and Arizona Coyotes.

The Stars, who sit just one point back of the Chicago Blackhawks in the Central Division but have two games in hand, will look to replicate a 5-3 victory over the Bruins back on November 3. Ex-Bruin Tyler Seguin paced the Stars with a hattrick against the club that shipped him to Dallas in 2013.

The Bruins had been scoring at will until their previous two games. The B’s had cashed the OVER in four straight thanks to a whopping 36 combined goals, but have struggled to light the lamp of late. There have been just five goals scored in their previous two outings, which include a 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets and a 2-0 loss to the Nashville Predators in their last game.
