Minnesota are 11-3 SU in their last 14 games.

Minnesota are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Dallas.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Dallas' last 10 games.

Dallas are 9-4 SU in their last 13 games.

Prediction

The Wild have been really good lately winning 7 of their last 10 games but they have struggled playing on the road against Dallas, they're 1-4 in their last 5 games when playing on the road against them. The Stars are winning the 65% of the time at home this season. This a very important game for both teams so it should be a close game but I'm going with the home team.
