Dallas vs Philadelphia: NHL Lone Star State Showdown

Dallas vs Philadelphia: NHL Lone Star State Showdown

Dallas Stars: Recent record is slightly deceiving

Sitting first overall in the NHL, with a stellar 21-5-2 record, Dallas is the highest scoring team in the league though their recent “defense be damned” style is a slight concern. The Stars are 2-0-2 in December but they have given up three-goal leads in the third period during two of those four contests. Dallas had a 3-0 lead before losing 4-3 (SO) in Calgary to open the month and then let a massive 5-1 margin slip away before a late power play goal from Patrick Sharpe secured a 6-5 home win against Carolina on Tuesday. The Stars can score and we see Dallas being better on defense here.

Philadelphia Flyers: Have pulled to with two points of a playoff spot 

Following a 2-7-4 stumble, Philadelphia has picked up their play as the Flyers have posted a 6-2-1 record over their last nine matches. The Broad Street Boys have earned at least one point in ten of their last thirteen matches and seven of those contests have been decided in extra time. Somewhat better recently, the Flyers are still offensively challenged as their 61 goals is the 29th worst mark in the NHL. Philadelphia is playing back-to-back contests after they beat the Blues 4-2 in St. Louis last night. 

Dallas vs Philadelphia NHL Prediction: Believing the Dallas coaching staff preached defense at practice over the last two days - the Stars will better in their own end tonight. Being known as squad that goes soft once they have a lead is not a perception any team wants. Following a stretch where the Flyers won eight of nine meetings, Dallas has won two straight games by identical 2-1 scores including their victory in Philadelphia back on October 17. Lasso a Lone Star State winner by aligning with the Stars and a 500 unit wager on their money line price posted at the TopBet sports wagering website.
