The Carolina Hurricanes are still a good team, but they've been hit or miss these last couple of weeks and they're still dealing with injuries. The Dallas Stars have gotten hot out of nowhere and they now have a chance to sneak into the playoffs if they keep piling up these points. Not easy to beat the same team twice in as many days, but the Stars are rolling right now, they're at home and the Canes are a banged up roster. Give me the Stars and the plus money... Again.
