Despite a record of great success in the regular season Minnesota head coach Bruce Boudreau has had nothing but frustration in the playoffs. But at least he took teams to the playoffs. Heading into this NHL Betting online season Boudreau had sent six consecutive teams to the post season. However, its looking like “Gabby” and his Wild are heading to the golf links next week. And Boudreau may be job hunting then. Meanwhile the Dallas Stars will be playoff bound for the third time since 2014. Rookie head coach Jim Montgomery has carried over his success from the college ranks.

Now Minnesota is falling like a rock at the worst possible time. Wild Backers have had their pockets burned in seven of their last 10 games. Six of their last seven games have gone under the total. Of great concern Minnesota’s lack of goal scoring. Ironic for a Boudreau coached team. To illuminate the Wild rank 27th in the NHL for goal scoring compared to 13th for goals against. Minnesota is now 35-33-5-4 with only 30 out of 77 games clearing the total.
In like manner has goal scoring been a disaster for Dallas. In fact, the Stars rank 29th in the NHL for lighting the lamp. By contrast the back end is what has saved their season. Dallas ranks second in the NHL for goals against and fifth for the penalty kill. Owing to that is a record of 39-31-5-1 with only 22 out of 76 games going over the total.
Stats to Consider
Late on Minnesota has been in absolute free fall as a road team. Only once have the Wild paid in their last nine away games. Minnesota has gone under the NHL betting online total in their last four road tilts. Along the same lines Dallas has struggled as to get the money at home. In fact, the Stars have cashed a winning ticket in only two of their last nine games at American Airlines Center. Dallas has gone under the total in five of their last eight in that role.
Team vs. Team
Dallas has had full control of the payout window in their series against the Wild. As an example, the Stars have four straight payouts against the Wild. Eight of the last ten between these teams have gone under the total. Minnesota has been a dreadful sportsbook value at Dallas. To illuminate the Wild have come away with the cash in only one of their last seven visits to Big D. Three of the last four in this series at Dallas have gone under the total.
Matchup to Watch
To exemplify this season has been a dreadful downer for Wild backers and for Boudreau. Sadly, he is likely to face the firing squad next week. As was previously noted Dallas owns this NHL Betting online series.
