Calgary Flames @ Dallas Stars – Sunday February 17, 2013 6:00PM EST

In the span of less than five days, the Calgary Flames and the Dallas Stars will tangle twice. The home and home series features a game in Calgary on Wednesday. But this game in Dallas has a lot of intrigue to it that makes it something worth noting. The sportsbook experts point out that the Dallas Stars is nearly unbeatable at home, while the Calgary Flames is nearly unbeatable on the road. The game in Calgary will pose some problems for the Flames because the team is having problems playing at home. But Calgary is trying to fight for a playoff spot based on its road performance.

The Dallas Stars has a .500 record on the road, but the betting sites know that the Stars much prefers to play at home. Dallas has a 3-1-1 home record, which is respectable in this shortened season. The Flames possess a 2-1-1 road record and that is a kind of momentum that the Flames has not seen in a long time. The Flames is still struggling to score goals, but this game has a lot of interesting angles that should give even the most seasoned bettors a lot of headaches.

Why the Flames Will Win

The Flames win games on the road because that is when Calgary scores the majority of its goals. The sports betting experts have noticed that the Flames seems to play with a much stronger sense of urgency on the road than it does at home. The goaltending tends to remain constant, but the offensive pressure offered by the Calgary forwards is definitely kicked up a notch when the team is in someone else’s building. That sort of inconsistency and unpredictability is what makes the Flames hard to beat on the road.

Why the Stars Will Win

Dallas just plays better at home than it does on the road. At the same time, Dallas is not a terrible road time either. In this game, the Stars will need to get some pressure off of goaltender Kari Lehtonen. This is a goalie having a tremendous season, but he is facing a lot of shots lately. Dallas needs to clean up the play in its own end and start bringing the play to the opposition. That kind of game plan seems to be the one that the Stars is more comfortable following at home than on the road.

The Bottom Line

Both of these teams are in their elements in this game. The Stars feels more comfortable at home, and the Flames feels more comfortable on the road. But thing that will decide this game will be the Dallas Stars’ ability to keep pressure on the Calgary goaltender and keep the puck out of the Dallas zone. This won’t be a defensive battle, but it will be extremely interesting to watch.

Pick: Dallas Stars
