Preview

The Dallas Stars will host the Calgary Flames in a matchup that promises to be a thrilling encounter for fans of the NHL. This game will be played at the American Airlines Center in Dallas on Monday, 8:30 p.m. EST. Dallas comes into the game after a dominant 7-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche, where Jason Robertson scored two goals. The Flames, on the other hand, are looking to bounce back after a disappointing run of form in their last 10 games. This game promises to be a close encounter, with both teams desperate for a win to boost their playoff hopes. In this article, we will take an in-depth look at both teams and provide a prediction for the outcome of the game.

 

Calgary Flames

The Calgary Flames come into this game with a record of 27-22-13 and sit fifth in the Pacific Division. They have struggled in their last 10 games, with a record of 2-5-3. The Flames have been inconsistent this season, with their offense and defense both struggling at times.

Offensively, the Flames have been led by Elias Lindholm, who has 51 points in 60 games played. He has been a consistent point producer for the team this season, and the Flames will need him to be at his best in this game. The Flames have struggled to score goals this season, with an average of only 2.6 goals per game, which is the fourth-worst mark in the league. They will need their other forwards, including Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk, to step up and provide some much-needed scoring for the team.

Defensively, the Flames have been average this season. They have allowed an average of 2.9 goals per game, which is the 12th-best mark in the league. However, their defense has struggled in their last 10 games, giving up an average of 3.5 goals per game. The Flames will need to tighten up defensively if they hope to compete with the Stars, who have a strong defensive unit.

In goal, the Flames have been led by Jacob Markstrom, who has been solid for the team this season. He has a record of 17-16-2 and a save percentage of .902. However, his play has been inconsistent at times, and the Flames will need him to be at his best in this game if they hope to keep the Stars' offense at bay.

 

Dallas Stars

The Dallas Stars come into this game with a 34-16-13 record and sit at the top of the Central Division. They have been in good form lately, with a record of 4-3-3 in their last 10 games. The Stars have been led by their strong defensive play this season, which has been key to their success. They have allowed only 2.5 goals per game this season, which is the second-best mark in the league.

One of the Stars' standout players this season has been Jason Robertson. The 21-year-old has been impressive in his debut NHL season, with 37 points in 43 games played. He was particularly impressive in the team's last game against the Avalanche, where he scored two goals in a dominant performance. Robertson's scoring touch will be key to the Stars' chances in this game, and he will be looking to continue his good form against the Flames.

Another key player for the Stars is Roope Hintz, who has been a consistent point producer this season. He has 33 points in 42 games played and has been a key player on the power play. The Stars will need him to be at his best in this game, as they look to exploit the Flames' defense.

Defensively, the Stars have been one of the best teams in the league this season. They have allowed only 117 goals this season, which is the second-best mark in the league. They have been led by John Klingberg, who has been a standout player for the team this season. He has 36 points in 56 games played and has been a key player on both ends of the ice. The Stars will need their defense to be at its best in this game, as they look to shut down the Flames' offense.

In goal, the Stars have been led by Anton Khudobin and Jake Oettinger. Khudobin has been the team's primary starter this season, with a record of 12-8-7 and a save percentage of .913. Oettinger has played well in limited action, with a record of 7-4-6 and a save percentage of .915. The Stars will need both of their goaltenders to be at their best in this game, as they look to limit the Flames' scoring chances.

Prediction

Based on the current form of both teams, it is clear that the Dallas Stars are the favorites to win this game. They have been in good form lately, with a record of 4-3-3 in their last 10 games. The Flames, on the other hand, have struggled in their last 10 games, with a record of 2-5-3. The Stars have a strong defensive unit, which has been key to their success this season. They have allowed only 2.5 goals per game, which is the second-best mark in the league.

The Flames have struggled to score goals this season, with an average of only 2.6 goals per game. They will have a tough time against the Stars' defense, which has been one of the best in the league this season. The Stars also have a talented group of forwards, led by Jason Robertson and Roope Hintz, who have been consistent point producers this season.

Based on these factors, I predict that the Dallas Stars will win this game and cover the -1.5 puck line. They have a strong defensive unit and a talented group of forwards, which should be enough to overcome the Flames' struggling offense. The Flames will need to tighten up defensively and get some much-needed scoring from their forwards if they hope to have any chance in this game.
