stars blues nhl

The American Airlines Center in Dallas will play host to the opening game of the second round matchup between the Dallas Stars and St. Louis Blues, and unfortunately for the home team, the Blues have been on a roll in Dallas. The Blues have won four of their last five in Dallas and six of seven overall.

Shark Bites
  • The Blues have scored over half of the posted total in their last five games.
  • The visiting team is 1-4 SU in its last five games in this matchup.
  • The Blues are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games on Friday.

Despite the recent one-sided nature of the matchup, the Stars enter the game as -113 favorites. A recent run on their home ice has seen them go 8-1 over their last nine games, but the Blues are no slouch on the road with seven wins in their last eight games outside of St. Louis. The Blues are also clicking as underdogs lately, going 7-1 in that spot.

It seems like the trends are working against Dallas, but they’ve shown tremendous resilience when losing the previous game in a matchup. They lost 5-4 the last time these teams met on March 12, but it’s rare for a team to beat them twice in a row, as they’re 9-1 after losing the previous game in a matchup.

Stars fans hoping for the added boost of getting Tyler Seguin back in the lineup will have to wait, as the center is expected to miss the first two games of the series.
