Dallas going for a Hat Trick of Victories in the Tri-State

The Dallas Stars will continue their trek into the Tri-State when they take on the New Jersey Devils tonight. The Stars knocked off the Rangers and Islanders this past week and look to complete the hat trick when they square off vs the Devils. The Stars opened as -110 favorites to get the victory.

  • The Devils are 5-1 SU in their last six games after a loss.
  • The Stars are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games on Friday.
  • The favored team is 13-5 SU in the last 18 games in this matchup.

Dallas has been on a nice run in its last 10 games, going 7-3 SU and 6-4 ATS. Missing starting goaltender Ben Bishop hasn’t slowed them down as backup Kari Lehtonen has been filling in admirably during this road trip and is 2-0 SU, allowing only three goals. While Dallas’ road record this season has left much to be desired (8-10 SU), they’ve picked it up away from American Airlines Arena recently. The Stars are 5-1 SU in their last six games on the road, outscoring their competition 21-8. Bettors may want to back the Stars for this one and ride their wave of competency.

New Jersey is coming off a tough road loss to the Canadiens on Wednesday and will look to bounce back at the Prudential Center. The Devils are 7-7 SU at home this season and are the only potential playoff team that doesn’t have a winning record in their barn. Star forward Taylor Hall missed the game vs Montreal due to a knee contusion and is questionable for tonight’s game. If he is to miss the game, he’ll be sorely missed as in his last appearance, he netted two goals vs the Kings.
