Puck Line Pick
You’ve probably seen it many times on this site, but it’s worth reiterating: the Stars are one of the most inconsistent squads in the NHL. While the team lost their last game (on Saturday to the Sharks), that doesn’t necessarily mean that a loss is in store on Tuesday. Dallas hasn’t lost more than two games in a row since late November/early December, and their recent loss (which was a close 1-2 loss, mind you) followed a dominating six-game winning streak.
Over Under Pick
Meanwhile, Colorado is in the midst of a much worse stretch. The Avalanche have dropped three-straight contests, and they’re 4-7-2 since December 16th. Colorado is also winless in their last three meetings with Dallas, all of which have come this season. If there’s anything to hang your hat on, it’s their 11-7-3 home record (vs. Dallas’s 11-9-2 away record).
