Detroit Red Wings Vs Dallas Stars NHL Betting Preview
Red Wings Suddenly Struggling!
After splitting their first four games of the season, the Red Wings are suddenly struggling. Detroit has dropped three straight despite putting up a great effort in Tuesday’s narrow 2-1 overtime road loss against Dallas. Vladislav Namestnikov scored his first goal of the season in the opening period but it wasn’t enough as Dallas got a second period goal from defenseman John Klingberg and the game-winner in OT from center Jason Dickinson. Detroit has been outscored 12-4 over its last three games. The Red Wings rank a lackluster 29th in scoring (2.0 gpg) and 23rd in goals allowed (3.3 gpg). Detroit has gone 0-2-1 on the road this season.
Stars Off To Unbeaten Start!
Dallas had a long wait to get its season underway because of a COVID-19 outbreak within the team, but the defending Western Conference champs have looked rock-solid through three games. The Stars obliterated Nashville 7-0 in its regular season and home opener on Friday before picking up a 3-2 win over the Predators two days later. The Stars had their hands full before getting past Detroit on Tuesday night as Klingberg dished out his fifth assist of the season and scored his first goal. Dallas has scored 12 goals while allowing three. Joe Pavelski has a team-high three goals and four assists. Denis Gurianov and Alexander Radulov have each added two goals.

Expert Analysis and Prediction
Detroit will definitely be motivated to snap its modest skid and get some revenge for Tuesday night’s crushing loss, but Dallas is the better team and both ends of the ice. The Stars are playing at home and are probably still feeling a collective adrenaline rush with only three games under their belts. Dallas has won two straight and three of the last four meetings while limiting Detroit to one goal in each victory. The Stars have too much firepower in Pavelski, Gurianov and Radulov, which, now that I say it, sounds like some kind of bad ass Eastern European law firm. Dallas wins and gets it done by two goals!
Pick: Dallas 3 Detroit 1
