The Dallas Stars have put together a couple wins and finally beat the Hurricanes last night, but I need to see more before I can back this club with confidence, especially on the end of a back to back. The Carolina Hurricanes have still owned the Stars this season, they've been money at home and they've been one of the best teams in the league on the end of back to backs dating back to last season. I'm going to lay the reasonable price with the Hurricanes on their home ice.
