Edmonton Oilers vs Dallas Stars NHL Ice Hockey Betting Tips

Dallas blanked the Oilers in the beginning of April last time they met and they will repeat the 5-0 success with a Game 1 win against Edmonton at American Airlines Center on Friday.

The Oilers were pushed to limit by Vancouver and with Dallas playing a fluent defensive style of hockey, taking care of goalie Jake Oettinger in net they will limit the chances of Edmonton’s top-five who have been the cog room for the Canadian team all season.

Dallas have the breadth in the offence to trouble the Oilers with all four forward formations and that will prove to be the difference in this game as it was the last time they met. 

With the Stars restricting the offence of the Oilers we can also expect this game to go Under the Game Total.

  • Dallas took 5 of 6 points on offer against Edmonton in the regular season.
  • Jake Oettinger has a goals against average of 2.06 in 13 starts in the playoffs.
  • All but one of Dallas’s players that have played multiple games in the playoffs have registered at least a point.

2022-23 Season Series
Edmonton won the series 2-1.

Edmonton Oilers Form

The Oilers came back from a 1-2 game deficit to win the final 2 matches of their seven-game series against Vancouver to take their place in the Western Conference Finals. 

As you would expect it is the Oilers starting five that lead the NHL in Playoff Goals, Assists and Points with Zach Hyman finding the net 11 times, McDavid has 19 Assists and Leon Draisaitl has 24 Points, while Evan Bouchard is third in Points and leads all defenceman with 5 goals, 15 Assists and 20 Points.

The offensive power of the Oilers is undeniable but they will have to step up defensively, as it is going to be tough to win the Cup while allowing 3.83 goals per game in their own net. 

Edmonton Oilers Team News

No injuries to report.

Dallas Stars Form

Dallas took care of Colorado in six beating the Avalanche 2-1 in OT in Denver and have now beaten the past two Stanley Cup Champions in these playoffs after getting it done against Vegas in the first round.

Dallas have done things a little different to Edmonton, allowing just 2.38 goals per game in the playoffs with goalie Jake Oettinger playing superbly with a save percentage of .918 and a goals against average of 2.09 per game.

Wyatt Johnston leads Dallas with seven goals, but importantly for the Stars is they are getting production from all four lines as 16 of 21 players that have stepped onto the ice have scored a goal and all but one have registered a point.

Dallas Stars Team News

Roope Hintz is questionable with an upper-body injury.
