Dallas is one of the few teams in National Hockey League who managed to defeat LA Kings at home, with an emphatic 5-2 in early March. The hosts are undefeated since then and should easily avenge that loss tonight when they seem to be holding all the aces is in their sleeves.
Match: LA Kings vs Dallas Stars
Bet: LA Kings
Odds: Unibet 1.90
The Kings had a day off and with no injuries whatsoever, coach Sutter can field the very best team and even afford the luxury of resting goalkeepers. Both of them are in excellent to play 60 minutes, but the coach prefers to announce the one who will start in the net shortly before the kickoff. After losing to San Jose and Phoenix one week ago, the Kings defeated both teams at home and with another victory tonight they can consolidate their position at the top of the Pacific division.
The Kings have been dominant at home throughout the season, but they are still trailing the leader by eight points and can’t afford any false steps. While Los Angeles is trying to overtake the leader, Dallas is simply struggling to remain in the playoffs race and right now their chances don’t look too good. With 29 points in as many games, the Stars have hit rock bottom in the Pacific division and will need to start a winning streak soon. Last night they fought a hard battle at Colorado and squandered a two-point lead en route to a late 4-3 defeat in regulation time.
LA Kings needs to slightly improve its power-play percentage and more important reduce the minutes of penalty, but otherwise they have no major flaws. With Dallas struggling to set up a decent defensive, the host should find their way to the net enough times to confirm the odds of 1.90 offered by Unibet.
