Hot Predators Host Reeling Stars Tuesday

Mike Fisher Pekka Rinne Nashville Predators NHL

The Central Division might be the best in hockey and two of its playoff-bound teams are set to square off when the Dallas Stars visit the Nashville Predators Tuesday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Predators are 10-25 in their last 35 games versus the Central Division.
  • The Stars are 6-2 SU in their last eight road games.
  • The Stars are 1-4 SU in their last five games following a loss.

Online book Bovada is presently offering the Preds at -145 in moneyline markets while the Stars are +115. The total is currently tabbed at 5.5 with OVER 5.5 goals at -110 and UNDER 5.5 goals at -120.

The Predators enter Tuesday’s action as one of the hottest teams in the NHL, carrying a four-game winning streak into the meeting with their Central Division rivals. Most recently, Nashville posted a 5-0 win on home ice over the St. Louis Blues back on Saturday and have had a couple of days off to enjoy their recent run of success.

Interestingly, the Preds have not been at their best when they have had two days off in between games. They have gone just 2-7 SU in their last nine games with two days off in between. Certainly an angle for Preds backers to keep in mind.

The Stars are trending in the opposite direction as they have now lost three-straight games following Monday’s 3-2 overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings. They are still tied with the Chicago Blackhawks atop the Central with 83 points, but have been dreadful of late, posting just one win in their last seven games overall.

A silver lining for Stars backers, however, is that they have won each of the last four meetings with the Preds. It could be a good night for the Stars to get back in the win column.
