The Stars are 21-50 in their last 71 games playing on 0 days rest and 5-0 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Bruins are 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The road team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Stars aren't the best team in the world when playing on the end of a back-to-back, and the Bruins have been on a nice roll lately. I like the more rested home team to get the job done here.
