Dallas vs Edmonton: Skidding NHL Squads Clash in the Lone Star State

Dallas vs Edmonton: Skidding NHL Squads Clash in the Lone Star State
National Hockey League action is front and center for us today as we preview and predict the Edmonton Oilers vs Dallas Stars Lone Star State showdown. The Stars have fallen on tough times while the Oilers are stumbling through yet another losing season. Puck drop for this NHL Pacific vs Central Division duel is slated for 8:30 PM ET on January 21, 2016, at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. We expect some shooting and scoring from the Stars in this contest.

Dallas Stars: Have fallen on tough times in the second half

Playing well above their preseason expectations, Dallas was tagged with a lofty +3300 Stanley Cup Championship money line price in early October, the Stars sprinted out of the starting gate with a sparkling 29-8-3 record. Dallas didn’t lose two straight games during the first three months of the season and they closed December with a seven-point lead on St. Louis, plus an eleven-point gap over Chicago, in the Central Division. The New Year has not been a happy one for Dallas as the Stars have posted a brutal 1-5-2 record during January and now trail the Blackhawks by five-points in the Central. Slumps happen but Dallas open a five-game run against teams well below them in the standings and we anticipate the Stars getting back on track during that stretch.

Edmonton Oilers: Hits keep coming during another lost season in the Alberta Capital

While the plummeting price of oil is a much bigger story in Alberta – puck fans haven’t had much to cheer about in Calgary or Edmonton during the first half of the NHL 2015-16 season. The Flames and Oilers both have 43 points as they “battle” for the Western Conference cellar. Edmonton was actually just one win away from a .500 record after six straight wins to open December. Optimism faded quickly though as the Oilers have slumped during a 5-10-3 recent run and they are now 19-24-5 overall. Excitement surrounding the pending return of Connor McDavid has been tempered as third leading scorer Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is now out six-to-eight weeks with a hand injury.
