The Edmonton Oilers and Dallas Stars meet Tuesday in NHL action at the American Airlines Center.

The Edmonton Oilers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 28.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Leon Draisaitl leads Edmonton with 39 goals, Connor McDavid has 58 assists and James Neal has 107 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 84.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Mike Smith has given up 96 goals on 1,012 shots faced and Mikko Koskinen has allowed 92 goals on 1,028 shots. The Edmonton Oilers have allowed three or less goals in 15 of their last 18 games.

The Dallas Stars look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Dallas Stars are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 21.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Denis Gurianov leads Dallas with 20 goals, Tyler Seguin has 33 assists and Alexander Radulov has 124 shots on goal. Defensively, the Dallas Stars are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 81.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Ben Bishop has given up 98 goals on 1,236 shots faced and Anton Khudobin has allowed 58 goals on 823 shots. The Dallas Stars have allowed three or more goals in 11 of their last 19 games.

The Oilers are 5-1 in their last 6 vs. Central, 36-78 in their last 114 games playing on 0 days rest and 28-65 in their last 93 Tuesday games. The Stars are 13-3 in their last 16 games playing on 2 days rest, 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 17-8 in their last 25 home games. The over is 9-3-1 in Oilers last 13 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 5-2-1 in Stars last 8 overall. The Oilers are 10-32-1 in the last 43 meetings in Dallas and 26-59-1 in the last 86 meetings.

The Edmonton Oilers looked good last night against the Nashville Predators, but they're one of those teams that doesn't handle playing on the end of back to backs well. The Dallas Stars are as well rested as a team can be this time of year and they're at home, two things where they've had a lot of success this season. The Stars have also won five of the last seven meetings against the Oilers. I'll lay the juice with the Stars.
