Latest Odds : VEG -130 Total 5.5
Vegas is sitting in 3rd place in the division and they are actually looking like they did last year to a point. However, one thing the Golden Knights do have to change is the fact they have not really been able to reach the same level of offense that they have had in the past and that could make it a little bit harder as the season closes out for the Golden Knights.
The Golden Knights on the season has been able to score 2.99 goals a game, but have allowed 2.77 goals a game on the season so far. The Golden Knights have converted on the power play at 17.2%, but have killed off 81.8% of the opponents power plays.
The Stars are still trying to catch up to the Blues on the season and that is going to make it a challenge for the Stars in this game as they are starting to reach the must win points if they are going to get the lock for the playoffs, but even then the Stars will have a battle in the playoffs as well. The downside is each time the Stars have won the Blues have won as well, which is making it very hard for the Stars to catch up to the Blues.
The Stars are coming into this game here with a total of 2.52 goals a game being scored, but the defense is amazing as they have allowed only 2.49 goals a game on the season. The Stars have ended up getting 19.8% on the power play conversion, but have killed off 82.7% of the opponents power plays.
