This game is going to be lower scoring. When these two teams just faced off, there were five goals scored and that is going to be the case again here. The Stars defense has been good all season, and their defense is going to step up again here. Both of these teams are going to step up again here with the defense and this game is going to stay under the total. This is a very strong play.
