Latest Odds : DAL -155 Total 5.5
The Stars are a team that has really bounced back from what had started off poorly early this year. However, now the Stars are starting to become a team that looks like they are going to be a winner and potentially a playoff team if they are able to continue playing like they have been lately.
The Stars are seeing Ben Bishop come into his own in the goal. So far on the season he has allowed 2.49 goals a game, but is turning away 91.7% of the shots.
The Canadiens are a team that did not live up to expectations at all this year and will be joing another Canadian team in that category as the Edmonton squad was a major disappointment as well. So this is the way the season will go for the Canadiens as they can only really hope to disrupt some of the potential playoff runs some of the teams are going to try to make at the expense of the Canadiens.
