Hockey Bet on St. Louis Blues at Dallas

Hockey bet has two teams battling to stay in the playoff chase in the Western Conference meeting on Thursday as the Dallas Stars host the St. Louis Blues.

This should be a competitive hockey betting matchup since the teams have split their last ten meetings.

Hockey bet road teams have won both of the previous meetings between St. Louis and Dallas this season. The Blues won 4-3 in Dallas in November while the Stars won 4-1 at St. Louis back in October.  The Stars have still won three of the last five home games against the Blues going back to 2007.  In this series, three of the last four games have gone over the hockey bet total.

The Blues and Stars are in the mix in the Western Conference but both probably face an uphill battle as they would need to get past teams like Detroit and Nashville to make it.  Calgary, Anaheim and Minnesota are also part of the playoff race as hockey bet indicates.  The good news for Dallas is that they are playing many of the teams ahead of them.  “It’s going to be exciting. I think the break came at a good time for our club, because I think that even though we were playing well, I do think we’re going to benefit well from the rest that was provided, especially for people like Stephane Robidas and Mike Modano.” Head coach Marc Crawford said, “You go down the list, and there were clearly some guys who were fatigued. Coming down the stretch, we were winning because our goalie was playing remarkably well and we were getting some timely scoring from our group.”

The key for Dallas in making the playoffs and winning in hockey betting will be getting Marty Turco to play well every night. The team added Kari Lehtonen so at least they have an option if Turco falters.  “The pressure is always there,” Turco said. “The only thing I really look at is where the team sits in the standings, how we’ve been playing, and what I can do.” Turco played very well before the break as the Stars got back into the playoff hunt. Lehtonen has been hurt and hasn’t played in an NHL game this hockey bet season but he will get time with the Stars. He has a 94-83-17 record in 204 games in his career.  “It’s exciting for me. I spent many years in Atlanta, and the last couple of years weren’t going well. So it’s great to have the opportunity with a great team like this. It’s exciting,” Lehtonen said.
