The Tampa Bay Lightning are the better overall team in this matchup as they have talent all over the board as well as a great goaltender, but the Dallas Stars have been gritty as of recent and I like them to capitalize here. The Dallas Stars have some veteran stars in Pavelski, Seguin, and Perry, and they showed the ability to show up in a big game as they kept their season alive. Anton Khudobin has been inconsistent this postseason as he is allowing close to 3 goals a game, but he was much better in game 5 as he recorded 39 saves, and I expect him to have yet another big game with his back against the wall. Final Score Prediction, Dallas Stars win 4-3.
