Stars Hope Early Season Success Versus Kings Translates On Home Ice

Posted by Don Melrose on 3/28/2013 5:49:24 PM

The Dallas Stars have struggled to remain relevant in the Western Conference playoff race. Another win over the defending Stanley Cup champions will be another boost to their chances. The Stars will look to continue their strong play against the reigning champs when they host the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday. Dallas has taken the first two online sports betting meetings in the season series, outscoring the Kings 7-2 in a pair of wins at Los Angeles.

The Stars would like to see their success continue as the series shifts to their home ice, where they have struggled to maintain a .500 record this season. The Kings are on the fourth stop of a five-game road trip, and need to be better as the visiting team the rest of the way as they look to close in on the Pacific-division leading Anaheim Ducks

NHL Betting Preview: Los Angeles Kings

Los Angeles has been a much stronger offensive power in recent weeks, with Jeff Carter and Dustin Brown being two of the biggest reasons for it. Carter and Brown have combined for 30 goals in just over 30 games, including a team-leading 18 from Carter. What was once considered a weakness is now a strength, but perhaps even more impressive is the way the Kings still have been better at their own end of the ice without many people noticing. Los Angeles ranks in the top-10 in goals per game allowed despite the fact that Jonathan Quick’s save percentage has dipped under .900, and they continue to give him the support he needs as he tries to get back on track.

Goaltending has been a major advantage for the Stars in this season series, as Kari Lehtonen has allowed just two goals in as many games, and stopped all 40 shots he faced in a 2-0 shutout win the last time these teams met. Dallas needs Lehtonen to be its best player on most nights, and they will need more consistency from him overall. Jaromir Jagr has been one of the most pleasant surprises of the season for the Stars so far with a team-leading 14 goals and 25 points, but the team around him hasn’t been consistent enough offensively. The Stars rank 15th in the NHL with an average of 2.7 goals per game, but need to get that mark over three to have a legitimate shot at the playoffs.

NHL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Dallas has had the edge in this online betting season series so far, but that could work against them as this season series shifts to Texas. The Kings have been very good of late and are finding ways to score more goals, so look for them to finally solve Lehtonen and give Quick the goal support he needs as he continues to find his game.
