The Florida Panthers and Dallas Stars meet Tuesday in NHL action at the American Airlines Center.
The Florida Panthers need a win here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Florida Panthers are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 22 percent of their power play opportunities. Carter Verhaeghe leads Florida with 17 goals, Jonathan Huberdeau has 28 assists and Aleksander Barkov has 131 shots on goal. Defensively, the Florida Panthers are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 80 percent of their opponents power plays. Chris Driedger has given up 37 goals on 530 shots faced and Sergei Bobrovsky has given up 69 goals on 744 shots.
The Dallas Stars look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Dallas Stars are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 25.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Joe Pavelski leads Dallas with 15 goals, John Klingberg has 20 assists and Denis Gurianov has 93 shots on goal. Defensively, the Dallas Stars are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 78.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Anton Khudobin has allowed 51 goals on 589 shots faced and Jake Oettinger has allowed 42 goals on 503 shots.
The Panthers are 2-6 in their last 8 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games. The Stars are 4-13 in their last 17 home games and 10-23 in their last 33 overall. The under is 6-2 in Panthers last 8 overall. The under is 3-0-2 in Stars last 5 overall. The Panthers are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Dallas and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The Florida Panthers went from winning six straight to dropping three straight, but they've done a great job of limiting losing streaks, so I expect them to bounce back soon. The Dallas Stars keep getting the benefit of the doubt from oddsmakers, and while they've had some nice recent wins, they also have issues with consistency. The Panthers have been head and shoulders the more trustworthy team this season and they've still won four of the six meetings against the Stars. I'll gladly take the Panthers and the cheap price on the road.
