Stars vs. Devils Prediction

I’m on the Stars here. I just don’t trust the Devils at home, and home ice aside, the goaltending is far from trustworthy as well. The Stars have emerged with a solid 1-2 punch of Oettinger and Wedgewood and I trust the Stars lineup and coaching a lot more here. Give me Dallas.
