It is the first game back home for the Stars after a three-game road trip. Montreal is playing the last game of a three-game road trip as NHL bet schedule information tells us.
NHL betting trends definitely favor the Stars in this game. Dallas has won 6 of the last 10 meetings against Montreal but since the teams don’t play a great deal there are three ties included. Montreal only has one win against Dallas in the last 11 years and that win was at home. Dallas won last season 4-1 at home against the Canadiens as NHL betting results show.
Dallas has been making a strong push in the Western Conference and actually looks like a playoff team now. Much of the improvement from the Stars has come from goaltender Marty Turco. He has picked up his play and the Stars have been winning in NHL betting. At home the Stars have been solid all season in NHL betting. Overall, the Stars still have weak defensive numbers as NHL betting stats show but they are getting better. Dallas is just outside the Top 10 in offensive numbers as NHL betting statistics show.
Montreal has been a tough team to figure out for gamblers making an NHL bet. Earlier in the season they looked like a Stanley Cup contender by gamblers making an NHL bet but recently they look like a team that is going nowhere. What was once a potent offense has fallen out of the Top 10 in the league as NHL betting numbers show and the defense has never been that good. Carey Price hit a slump this season and the rest of the team followed. The Canadiens are well coached though and they could rebound into a tough team before the NHL betting season is over. Andrei Markov has led the team in scoring for much of the season while Alexei Kovalev has led the team in shots.
The NHL betting over is 4-4-2 in the last ten meetings between the two teams.
