Edmonton Oilers at Dallas Stars Predictions & Tips

Dallas are tipped to win the first game of this conference finals series.

The Stars enter this matchup well rested and that could give them the edge against an Edmonton team facing a quick turnaround after a seven-game series.

  • Dallas Stars have won 8 of their last 11 games
  • Dallas Stars are 2-1 when facing Edmonton this season
  • Edmonton Oilers have lost 2 of their last 3 road games
  • The Over has not cashed in any of Edmonton's last 4 games

Head To Head

  • Dallas Stars won the regular season series 2-1
  • Dallas Stars won 5-0 when the two teams last met on April 3

Edmonton Oilers Form

Edmonton enter this series facing a swift turnaround after going the full seven games in the previous rounds.

The Oilers, who went 49-27-6 in the regular season, made straightforward work of Los Angeles in the opening round of the postseason.

They split the first two games of the series, before wrapping up a 4-1 series victory with 6-1, 1-0 and 4-3 victories over the Kings.

Edmonton’s series against Vancouver was a lot more complicated, as they had to come from behind three times to force Game 7.

The Oilers set up that winner-takes-all clash with a 5-1 win at home, and then won back-to-back games for the first time in the series by running out 3-2 winners in Vancouver.

Dallas Stars Form

Dallas have played 13 games on their way to the Western Conference Finals, but they are well rested after a lengthy lay-off.

The Stars, who went 52-21-9 in the regular season, dug themselves into an early hole in the first round as they lost back-to-back home games with Vegas.

They rebounded well though, winning three of the next four games to force Game 7, which they won 2-1.

Dallas lost the series opener against Colorado too, but they responded with 5-3, 4-1 and 5-1 victories to take control.

The Stars passed up on the chance to clinch at home as they were beaten 5-3 in Game 5, but they took their second shot to wrap things up, winning 2-1 in overtime on the road.

Verdict

Dallas have not played for six days, while Edmonton head into this game on little rest.

The Oilers needed seven games and three trips to Vancouver to finally advance, so we are backing the fresher Stars team in this one.
