Dallas is only 3 games back from Phoenix for the final playoff spot in the West but every game is crucial with only 11 left on the docket. Defending home ice against a Nashville team playing in consecutive nights is especially important and its the situation the Stars find themselves in Friday evening at the American Airlines Center.
The Predators have had a pretty efficient week starting with a +103 win in Calgary last Friday. They followed that with an even more impressive 2-0 shutout of the Blackhawks at the United Center as an incredulous +202 underdog. A shootout loss on Tuesday could wear on Nashville though, especially as the Stars game will be their 3rd in four nights.
The Stars only have five home games left on the schedule and need to make the most of each one in an attempt to reach the playoffs. The team is 4-0-1 their last 5 in Dallas with the 4-3 shootout loss to Calgary being the most devastating as -219 favorites. Otherwise, the Stars have notched points and cleared the books as favorites in each game in a race to the finish with the Coyotes.
Dallas has some redemption to earn after allowing four unanswered goals in a 4-1 loss to the Predators on January 20th in Nashville. Four different Predators players scored to win money for those that bet on them as -120 home favorites.
