Philadelphia vs Dallas Stars by MagicRat
Philadelphia come into this game in much better form than their opponents as well having won their last seven matches, although three of these went to OT. Despite this they will be a team full of confidence. Dallas, however, are not playing badly and have won two of their last three matches, inclduing their last match against Nashville 5-2.
Dallas have won just one of their last six away matches and they have won just four of their 15 away matches this season and when you compare this with Philadelphia's home record then you can see that Dallas may struggle to get the win here. They are 10-5-2 at home, inlcuding winning their last five home matches.
Furthermore, Dallas have yet to win this season against Eastern Conference teams having failed to do so on four occasions, whereas Philadelphia are 7-3-1 against Western Conference opposition.
In terms of points Dallas possess the joint third highest point scorer of the season as Seguin has 29 points but Philadelphia have two players just one point behind on 28 points They are Voracek and Giroux and Simmonds is just another two points behind on 26 points. Simmonds is, in fact, the third highest goalscorer this season with 15 which puts him five goals ahead of anyone else playing for either f these two teams.
I think this could be high scoring game but given the slightly better quality of the Philadelphia players, as well as their superior league record anf form then I think Philadelphia should have enough to edge this game in regulation.
