The Washington Capitals and Dallas Stars meet Thursday in NHL action at the American Airlines Center. The Washington Capitals look for a win after winning 4 of their last 5 games. The Dallas Stars need a win after losing 3 of their last 4 games.

The Washington Capitals are averaging 3.57 goals per game and are scoring on 25 percent of their power play opportunities. Conor Sheary leads Washington with 4 goals, Evgeny Kuznetsov has 5 assists and Alex Ovechkin has 27 shots on goal. Defensively, the Washington Capitals are allowing 3.43 goals per game and are killing 73.7 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Darcy Kuemper has given up 15 goals on 149 shots faced, and Charlie Lindgren has allowed 6 goals on 80 shots.

The Dallas Stars are averaging 3.29 goals per game and are scoring on 26.1 percent of their power play opportunities. Joe Pavelski leads Dallas with 4 goals, Roope Hintz has 5 assists and Jason Robertson has 20 shots on goal. Defensively, the Dallas Stars are allowing 2.14 goals per game and are killing 88.2 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Jake Oettinger has allowed 7 goal on 149 shots faced, and Scott Wedgewood has given up 7 goals on 75 shots.

The Capitals are 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Stars are 36-16 in their last 52 home games and 2-5 in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference. The over is 4-0 in Capitals last 4 overall. The under is 5-1-2 in Stars last 8 overall. The Capitals are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Dallas and 7-19 in the last 26 meetings. The underdog is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The road team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

The Washington Capitals are always attractive in the underdog role, but their defense scares me on the road. The Dallas Stars have been the more competitive side this season, and they’ve been one of the better home teams in the league dating back to the end of last season. I’d need more plus money to consider the Capitals on the road here. Give me the Stars and the reasonable price.
