The Los Angeles Kings host the Dallas Stars in a Thursday NHL matchup.

The Dallas Stars dropped a 4-1 decision at Vegas on Tuesday night and have lost four of six. Dallas took a 1-0 lead in the first off a Roope Hintz power play goal. Jason Spezza and Alexander Radulov assisted for the Stars and Ben Bishop gave up two goals on 44 shots to get the loss.

Max Pacioretty scored twice for the Golden Knights while Nate Schmidt and Brayden McNabb added empty netters. Paul Stastny posted a pair of helpers for Vegas and Marc-Andre Fleury recorded 23 saves to get the win.

The Los Angeles Kings losing streak reached nine games following a 6-1 defeat at Carolina on Tuesday. Dustin Brown scored a third period goal for Los Angeles who trailed 6-0. Alex Iafallo logged a lone assist and Jonathan Quick gave up six goals on 20 shots before Jack Campbell recorded 14 saves in relief.

Carolina received a pair of tallies from Dougie Hamilton with Sebastian Aho, Micheal Ferland, Jacob Slavin and  Teuvo Teravainen joining the scoring column. Jordan Staal assisted twice and Teravainen added three helpers for Carolina to make the 22 stops of Petr Mrazek a winning effort.

Stars are 24-59 in their last 83 games as a road underdog and Stars are 2-5 in their last 7 overall and Stars are 2-5 in their last 7 road games.

Kings are 2-5 in their last 7 games as a favorite and Kings are 2-5 in their last 7 games as a home favorite and Kings are 2-5 in their last 7 vs. Western Conference.

Underdog is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings and Stars are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings and Stars are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles.

I really can’t find a good reason to bet this game unless you have nothing better to do because neither side is worth it…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
