The Seattle Kraken head to Dallas to take on the Stars for the third time in two weeks. Dallas took both games in Seattle, and with the Kraken on a losing skid, they will have a tough time righting the ship here in Texas.
Things continue to shift in the Pacific Division, and due to this losing streak, the Kraken are now a Wild Card team as the Edmonton Oilers have passed them in the standings. There is still time for them to improve their position, and they will want to return to their winning ways before the Stanley Cup Playoffs begin.
As for the Stars, they sit atop the Central Division but are still three points behind the Golden Knights for the number one slot in the Western Conference. Vegas has held strong for the vast majority of the season, but the race for first will go down to the final game of the regular season.

Kraken vs Stars Best Picks
Jason Robertson is coming off a spectacular performance in Calgary. As beautiful as that was, it is unlikely he will have back-to-back performances like that. So bettors should expect him to take a step back in this one.

Kraken vs Stars Prediction
It’s always tough to handicap a game when a team plays so many times in such a short span of time. It is tempting to go with the trend, which is Dallas outright. However, it is extremely difficult to beat a team three times in such a short time frame no matter how strong or weak the opponent’s play is.
Looking at the guys in net, bettors are forced to simply take the hot hand. Jake Oettinger has been standing on his head for the Stars. He has been one of the best goalies in the league of late, and it is hard to see that changing tonight. Seattle will try to bust out of this slump, but it just doesn’t seem like it is going to happen. Anything can happen in Dallas, but the home team should stand strong.
