With everything that went down on NHL trade deadline day, it will be interesting to see how two of the league’s hottest teams respond when they take to the ice for the first time since, as the Pittsburgh Penguins travel to face the Dallas Stars on Wednesday. The Penguins have won three-straight games to help close the gap between them and the first-place New York Rangers in the Eastern conference, while the Stars have won four in a row to move in to sole possession of eighth place in the Western conference.

NHL Sportsbook Line: Pittsburgh Penguins

While Dallas has moved in to a playoff spot on the strength of their record at home, Pittsburgh is still one of the team’s with a record better than .500 on the road, setting up an interesting online betting matchup. Both teams are playing a complete game at both ends of the ice, and as the playoffs draw closer this game promises to deliver with crucial points on the line.

The fact that the Penguins have won as many sports betting contests as they have to this point is impressive in itself considering how long they have been without their captain Sidney Crosby. With Crosby still sidelined with post-concussion symptoms, Evgeni Malkin continues to pace the team and the entire NHL with a league-high 78 points, including 37 goals. Malkin’s penchant for the highlight reel has rubbed off on his teammates, who have all seemed to come together to make up for not having Crosby to lean on. Marc-Andre Fleury has been very consistent all season, and ranks second in wins among goalies to only Nashville’s Pekka Rinne.

The Stars don’t have any one player with the talent of a Malkin or Crosby, but they have played a complete game under head coach Glen Gulutzan, and that has them in the thick of the playoff race. Dallas ranks in the bottom-half of the NHL in both goals scored and goals allowed, yet they have still managed to come through with results such as Sunday’s 3-2 win over the defending Western conference champion Vancouver Canucks. Kari Lehtonen has been healthy and solid in goal for the Stars, and with players like Loui Eriksson and Michael Ryder leading a scoring by committee approach among the top-six, there is every reason to like this team.

NHL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The public will likely end up going with the red-hot Penguins, but with Pittsburgh having to travel as the less desperate of the two teams, it looks like Dallas will come through. Both of these teams have managed to exceed expectations under different circumstances, but now will come the real sports bet test in the final stretch run to the postseason.
