To Win: 5 Units

The Stars come into this game tied for 2nd in the Western Conference with the Jets and the Avalanche, so every single game is important. Despite having a solid home record this year, the Stars have lost 2 straight games at home, including their last game where they no showed against the Devils. Coming into this game, the Stars have a significant rest advantage. The Kings played last night and tonight will be their 3rd game in 4 nights. They have been good on the road this year, but they are in the playoff race in large part because of their defense. They’re barely scoring 3 goals per game on the year and in their last 10 games have just 29 goals. The Stars are scoring a whopping 3.63 goals per game and 3.84 goals at home this year! Simply put, the Stars need this win and the 2 points a win would get them. They have lost 2 straight and need to get themselves back on track. They are the better team and the more rested team. If the Stars can play some defense tonight, the offense, led by Joe Pavelski, Jason Robertson, and Roope Hintz should be able to do enough against a tired opponent to get it done in regulation.
