Despite a 4-1 loss to the Stars in game one Tampa Bay remains the Stanley Cup favorite. Tampa Bay had a better record and metrics with the NHL betting odds. Dallas has gotten goal scoring that nobody knew existed. The jury is out if they can sustain that in a seven-game series. Also not lost among fans and gamblers was who carried the play-in game one. To illustrate Tampa Bay outshot Dallas 36-30. Stars goaltender Anton Khudobin was stellar between the pipes. Dallas is to be respected for their Cinderella run. But Tampa Bay is deeper and better.
