Florida vs Dallas: prediction for the NHL game
Florida are one of the three leaders in the East, and currently the team is occupying the 2nd line in the table. Not so long ago, the Panthers lost to Dallas (5:6 SO) away, but they were victorious in the following matches against Carolina (4:3 OT) and Vancouver (5:2). They haven't lost at home for five straight games.
The Panthers are demonstrating incredible performance this season, netting at least four goals in every game. Jonathan Huberdeau has already chalked up 46 points and currently he is the top scorer for Florida.
Dallas are 6th in their division, nine points behind Colorado. This season the Stars often endure losing streaks, so it will be very hard for them to strengthen their standings and reach the playoffs. However, in recent matches Dallas looked solid.
The Stars defeated Pittsburgh (3:2), lost to St. Louis (1:2) and crushed Seattle with a score of 5:2. But Rick Bowness's men don't do so well away from home, and they celebrated success in only one game out of 15 in regulation time.
At home, Florida average about 4 goals per game.
In 4 out of 5 matches between the clubs, more than one goal was scored in the first period.
We believe that Florida will avenge their recent defeat to Dallas. The Panthers are excellent at their home court, while the Stars struggle to fight on their travels.
Our prediction - Florida to win
Recent head-to-head games were high-scoring, for example, the teams scored 10 goals in the previous match. We believe that in this meeting the two sides will once again deliver high performance.
Second wager - total over 6 goals
