Jeff Skinner leads Carolina with eight goals, Justin Williams has 11 assists and Jordan Staal has 41 shots on goal.

The Stars are 17-35 in their last 52 road games, 15-7 in their last 22 Monday games and 16-36 in their last 52 games following a win. The Hurricanes are 1-5 in their last 6 home games, 16-36 in their last 52 Monday games and 2-5 in their last 7 overall. The Stars are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Carolina, 6-0 in the last 6 meetings and the home team is 19-7-2 in the last 28 meetings.
The Stars have had trouble stringing wins together this season and haven't had much success on the road dating back to last year. However, the Stars haven't had a problem beating the Hurricanes, and Carolina hasn't exactly been the hottest team in the league overall. The Canes have also dropped five of their last six at home. I'll take a shot with the Dallas Stars on the road with the plus money.
