NHL Odds: Stars at Islanders

The high-flying Dallas Stars haven’t faced much adversity so far in the 2015-16 NHL season but are riding a three-game road losing streak ahead of Sunday’s tilt with the New York Islanders in Brooklyn.

Shark Bites
  • The Stars are 12-0 SU in their last 12 games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Islanders' last seven games with no days off.
  • The Islanders are 6-2 SU in their last eight games at home.

If the Islanders hope to win this game, they’ll have to get their special teams in order. New York allowed two power play goals and a short handed tally against Pittsburgh in a 5-2 loss on Saturday.

The Islanders claimed three of a possible four points against the Stars last year, including a crazy 7-5 victory at home. It’s rumored the goaltenders were hungover in that game, but there isn’t enough sufficient proof at this point in time.

A sure sign of a Stanley Cup contending team is the ability to consistently play up to the competition, and the Stars have been doing that this year. Dallas is a sizzling 21-5 in their last 26 against teams with winning records.
