The Dallas Stars have won three of their last five games including a 5-2 home win over the Seattle Kraken on Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, the Florida Panthers have won four of their last five games and are on a two-game winning streak that includes a 5-2 home win over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.

BookMaker has the Florida Panthers listed as -190 money line favorites and has set the total for the over/under plays at 5.5 goals. Can the Panthers continue their dominant play at home or can the Stars pull off the road win? Let’s take a closer look at the way these two teams have played so far this season.

Florida: Dominant on Home Ice

The Florida Panthers enter this game with the 2nd most points in the Eastern Conference with 53 points and a record of 24-7-5 on the year. They are 19-3 at home and 20-16 ATS this season.

The Panthers have scored 141 goals this season for an average of 3.92 goals per game which is the 2nd most goals per game in the NHL this season. Surprisingly, they are in the middle of the pack in the league when it comes to power-play success with a conversion rate of 19%. Jonathan Huberdeau leads the team in points and assists with 47 points and 34 assists on the year. Aleksander Barkov leads the team in goals with 15 this season.

Florida has allowed 105 goals on the season for an average of 2.92 goals per game this year. They have a penalty kill percentage of 81.1% which is around the league average this season. Florida’s projected goalie, Sergei Bobrovsky, is 17-3-3 on the season with a .919 save percentage and is allowing an average of 2.55 goals per game.

Dallas: Looking to Improve

The Dallas Stars enter this game with 38 points and a record of 18-13-2 which ranks 11th in the Western Conference this season. The Stars are 4-10-1 on the road and 16-17 ATS this year.

The Stars have scored 95 goals on the season for an average of 2.88 goals per game this season. They have a power-play conversion rate of 26.3% which ranks 6th in the NHL this season. Joe Pavelski leads the team in goals, assists, and points this season with 15 goals, 20 assists, and 35 points.

The Stars projected goalie, Jake Oettinger is 9-2 on the season with a .923 save percentage and is allowing an average of 2.2 goals per game this year.

Series Trends and Game Pick

Florida is 7-2-1 in the last ten games of the series and is 2-0-1 in the last three matchups.

The under has hit in six of the last ten games of the series with the teams combining for an average of 6.5 goals per game. The over has hit in two of the last three games with the teams combining for an average of 8.33 goals in those contests.

Florida is the more talented team and is playing better compared to the Stars. The Panthers have also only lost three games on home ice this season. As a result, I am going with the Panthers money line in this contest Friday night on BookMaker.
