Lightning vs Stars NHL Betting Prediction
With a home advantage, the Stars are in an advantageous position. Additionally, they have a better defense, which adds more to their claim of winning the game.
On the other hand, the Lightning will look to replicate their performance in the last game and play to their strengths. Further, they have done well in Dallas, which will provide them comfort in this matchup. The inconsistency within their defensive setup can hamper them in this tie.
With both teams having positives and negatives to cater to, the game is likely to be tightly contested. But with a better recent run, we should expect the Stars to stay ahead and cover the spread in this one.
