The Detroit Red Wings continue to pile up the losses where they're becoming a tough team to back even in these big plus money spots, and they've scored two or less goals in seven of their last 11 games. The Dallas Stars don't win enough to justify all the respect they've been getting this season from oddsmakers, but they've played well over the last week or so, and they've now won four of the five meetings this season against the Red Wings. Give me the Stars and the PL for max betting value.
