Dallas Stars (1.87) vs. Anaheim Ducks (1.95); Total 5.5
The Anaheim Ducks have won two in a row and are coming off a 7-4 win over Colombus but it wasn’t without a price. Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller left that game with a lower body injury and is not expected to start tonight. This comes at a bad time for the Ducks as backup goalie Dan Ellis is out with a groin injury. It looks as though we will see Lior Jarkki in goal for the Ducks. He replaced Hiller in Saturday’s game and although the Ducks won 7-4 Larkki only managed to stop 7 of the 10 shots he faced. Or we could see Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers in goal for the Ducks (just called up from the AHL). As for the Stars they are coming off a 4-1 win over the Oilers and have won their last two games by 4-1 scores. Lehtonen missed Saturday’s game for the Stars due to the flu but is expected to be ready for tonight’s game. No goaltenders are yet confirmed for this game. The Stars have points in six straight games over the Ducks (4-0-2). Can they get another win over Anaheim tonight?

Dallas Stars vs. Anaheim Ducks Prediction:
The Ducks seem to have found their offensive touch once again and with so much talent it was only a matter of time. The Ducks have 11 goals in their last 2 games but what is encouraging is how well Perry, Getzlaf, Ryan, and Selanne have been playing. Many of the goals have been of the highlight reel fashion. However, it is tough to back the Ducks with their goaltending issues. As for the Stars their offence has been clicking as well scoring 4 goals in 4 straight games. I see this game being a high scoring affair. Currently the total for this game is 5.5 goals (1.95 for the Over). 4 of the last 5 meetings between these teams has gone OVER the total. 4 of Anaheims’s last 5 games has gone OVER the total. I like this game to go OVER the total as well for 1.95 at Bodog Sportsbook
