Florida Panthers @ Dallas Stars Tips


The Florida Panthers will take on the Dallas Stars in an NHL Central Division regular-season game on Saturday, April 10. This will be the fifth time these two teams have played each other this season, with Florida 4-1 up. There are three games still to play between these teams, so Dallas have an outside shot at tying the series. 

Until recently, the Panthers were second in the division and level on points with leaders the Tampa Bay Lightning.  This week Florida suffered back-to-back defeats against the Carolina Hurricanes which pushed them back to third, with Carolina replacing Tampa in top-spot. Meanwhile Dallas grabbed themselves an impressive 5-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday. 

I’m backing the improving Stars to upset the Panthers on Saturday, based off their two great wins recently, and the assumption that Florida will be somewhat deflated after losing twice to Carolina. 

  • Florida 3rd in NHL Central Division
  • Florida 26-15 this season
  • Dallas 6th in NHL Central Division
  • Dallas 14-24 this season

Head to Head 


The Dallas Stars and the Florida Panthers have played each other a total of 38 times. Currently Florida leads this head-to-head 20-18. In their last eight games over the past two seasons, the Panthers lead 5-3. In their most recent meeting in March of this year, Florida were victorious 4-1.

Florida Panthers Form 


The Florida Panthers are currently third in the NHL Central Division, with 56 points from 41 games and a record of 26-15. Despite losing their last two games, Florida are just a point behind the division leaders the Carolina Hurricanes, the very team that handed them those latest losses. 

Prior to losing those games against the Hurricanes, Florida had won six on the bounce, and in general they have been consistently strong all season.  However, having been so close to topping the table for weeks, then having the opportunity snatched away by successive defeats to an arch rival must have hurt them. 

Dallas Stars Form 


The Dallas Stars have played 38 games this season, with 14 wins against 24 defeats, ten of which were on overtime shootouts which earned them a point each time. Dallas are currently sixth in the NHL Central Division, and have games in hand over every other team. 

Dallas have lost two of their last three games, against the Carolina Hurricanes, and the Chicago Blackhawks. The Stars’ had previously managed to defeat Carolina on Sunday, an impressive result considering that the Hurricanes are currently top of the division. On Friday Dallas pulled off a remarkable 5-1 win over Chicago.

Verdict

The fact that Dallas defeated Carolina on Sunday proved that they are very much a “live dog” going into this game. On the flip side, the Panthers have lost their last two matches, losing both times to – yep, you guessed it – the Carolina Hurricanes.
 
The outcome of this game is going to boil down to whoever wants it most, and I believe right now Dallas are the hungrier team. I’m therefore backing them to defeat Florida on Saturday in a thriller that will feature around seven goals. The Dallas Stars’ no.1 hitman Joe Pavelski is my pick for anytime goal scorer.
