Struggling Stars Must End Slumping Ways

Henrik Zetterberg Detroit Red Wings Jamie Benn Dallas Stars NHL

With around 25 percent of the NHL season left to play, division races are heating up (save for the Metropolitan). The Dallas Stars are jockeying for the lead in the Central Division but a two-game losing skid has them going in the wrong direction. The high-scoring Stars will look to snap that drought when they host the Detroit Red Wings Monday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Red Wings are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games against the Stars.
  • The Red Wings are 0-5 SU in their last five games as underdogs.
  • The Stars are 21-9 SU in their last 30 games after a loss in their previous effort.

Online shop Bovada is presently offering the Stars as -150 favorites in moneyline markets while the Red Wings are +120. As far as the total is concerned, OVER 5.5 goals is priced at -105 while UNDER 5.5 goals is -125.

The Stars sit second in the competitive Central – one point behind the Chicago Blackhawks and one point ahead of the St. Louis Blues; both of whom are idle Monday. They are coming off a 3-2 loss to the New York Rangers Saturday and have lost five of their last six contests overall.

The Wings have been trending in the other direction compared to Dallas as they’ve won back-to-back contests and sit fourth in the Atlantic Division with 73 points. Their last outing was a 5-3 win at the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday and the club has gone 9-2 SU in their last 11 games with one day off in between games.

With a 1-6 SU record in their last seven games against teams from the Eastern Conference, the Stars will need to reverse that crummy trend Monday if they hope to keep up with the Hawks and Blues in their competitive division.
