Date & Time: 1/18/2019, 1:30 AM UTC
Latest Odds: DAL -170 Total 5.5
TV Channel: FSW

Will the Kings be sellers at the trade deadline? That is a distinct possibility with how poorly the Kings have been performing on the year. Yes, an early season injury to Quick did not help the Kings out, but the rest of the blame is going to fall squarely on the offense that has been missing almost all season and has not looked anything like they did last season when the Kings were able to be one of the best teams in the nation.

The Kings on the other hand have a defense that is only giving up 2.94 goals a game. The offense is the worst in the nation with 2.26 goals a game being scored. The Kings have converted on the power play at 14.2%, but the Kings have killed off only 74.6%.
With the Stars the team has been one of the better performing teams that has not really had the glitz and glam thrust on them like so many other teams that have been playing at a high level. Instead, the Stars have been winning on a consistent basis, but also have been nearly unbeatable on home ice and that has made a marked difference for the Stars on the season.

The Stars on the season have managed to score 2.57 goals a game, but the defense for the Stars is giving up 2.64 goals a game. The Stars have ended up converting on the power play at 20.5%, but the penalty kill for the Stars is at 83%.
