Carolina Hurricanes vs. Dallas Stars Predictions

Score Prediction Stars 3 Hurricanes 2

Both teams are playing decent hockey of late with Carolina being 6-4 SU and Dallas being 7-3 SU in their last 10 games respectively. The Hurricanes last two losses both came in OT, so had a bounce or two gone their way, we could've been looking at a five-game winning streak for the Hurricanes coming in here.

But it's the Stars I prefer as a home dog, as Dallas has very little wiggle room in regards to trying to earn a playoff berth, and Carolina's got plenty of wins on the horizon with a five-game homestand against Detroit, Columbus, and three vs Chicago. Carolina's not in a position to throw away points in the standings as they are still in a tight battle for first place in the Central division. The urgency is all on the Stars side, and I expect them to outplay this price at a minimum.
