Why should you bet on Dallas?

This is a team that has overcome adversity for most of the regular season, as the Stars played through a ton of defensive injuries (and some Swiss cheese-style goal tending from both Kari Lehtonen and Antti Niemi), but they have a way of turning the tables on dire situations. While Game 4 is not a “must win” for the Stars, it is a chance for them to send a message about the real state of the time. I expect the passing to be crisper and the goals to be merciless. Tyler Seguin will be back on the ice again, just adding more to the offensive maelstrom that has the talent to make life miserable for the Wild.

Why should you put your money on the Wild?

If you’re a Stars fan, you’ve been dreading the arrival of “These” Stars during the playoffs. For most of the year, you’ve seen the team that passes with lightning speed and pours goals into opposing nets in bunches. But then, every now and then, you’ll get that Stars team that turns the puck over repeatedly and decides that defense is really an option rather than a necessity for an NHL franchise. The Wild are a young, exciting team that is all too ready to take the chances that the Stars give them, and you saw that in the last 50 minutes of this game. Now that the Wild have some momentum, look for them to start Game 4 on fire.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I like Dallas to weather a storm in the first period and then take the momentum back in this series. I’m predicting a 4-2 Stars victory.
