The Vegas Golden Knights and Dallas Stars meet Friday in NHL action at the American Airlines Center.
The Vegas Golden Knights look for a victory after winning six of their last seven games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 17.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Max Pacioretty leads Vegas with 21 goals, Alex Tuch has 30 assists and Shea Theodore has 177 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 81.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 143 goals on 1,632 shots faced and Malcolm Subban has allowed 36 goals on 367 shots. The Vegas Golden Knights have allowed two or less goals in five of their last seven games.
The Dallas Stars look for a victory after winning six of their last seven games. The Dallas Stars are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 19.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Tyler Seguin leads Dallas with 27 goals, Alexander Radulov has 34 assists and Jamie Benn has 159 shots on goal. Defensively, the Dallas Stars are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 82.2 percent of their opponents power plays. Ben Bishop has given up 81 goals on 1,196 shots faced and Anton Khudobin has allowed 74 goals on 968 shots. The Dallas Stars have allowed a combined three goals in their last five games.
The Golden Knights are 6-0 in their last 6 games as a favorite, 8-2 in their last 10 games as a road favorite and 5-1 in their last 6 vs. Western Conference. The Stars are 10-4 in their last 14 games as a home underdog, 29-62 in their last 91 games playing on 0 days rest and 7-3 in their last 10 home games. The Golden Knights are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and the under is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 17-7 in Golden Knights last 24 Friday games. The under is 34-13-5 in Stars last 52 overall.
You can make a case for either of these teams in their current form, especially the Dallas Stars who have allowed just three goals in their last 16 periods. This is a ridiculous stretch the Stars are on at the moment and getting them at plus money feels too good to be true. With that said, the Vegas Golden Knights haven't played since Sunday, while the Dallas Stars are on the end of a back to back. Just a massive schedule spot for the visitors, and that's why I lean toward the Golden Knights staling this game in Dallas.
