Boston Bruins @ Dallas Stars Lines Betting Preview


The Boston Bruins (25-13-3, 53 pts) will look to score five of a possible six points on a road trip West when they play the final against the Stars (22-17-2, 46 pts) in Dallas at the American Airlines Arena (8 p.m. ET, NESN, ESPN+) on Sunday night.

Linus Ullmark has been solid on the road trip and was excellent on Friday night at Arizona as he stopped 31 of 32 shots against the Coyotes and stopped them for a 2-1 win on goals from Erik Haula and a game-winning PP goal. of Charlie McAvoy’s game in the third period. A red-hot Erik Haula has four goals in the month of January after scoring a goal in his first 25 games as a member of the Boston Bruins and has come alive offensively since he was joined by Taylor Hall and David Pastrnak.

“I have the opportunity to play with two elite players and it is a good challenge. I wanted to do it really well, obviously, and it’s been fun. I just need to bring what I can bring and help them, and it’s been nice to have some success. Hopefully, we can continue to improve,” said Haula. “We feel good about each other and we talk a little bit, but I think there is even another level we can go to. Our goal is to keep improving and help the team win games”.

Betting prediction:

According to our friends at BetUS, the stars are 0-5 in their last five games following a home loss of three or more goals. As it happens, the Stars were throttled by the Washington Capitals 5-0 on Friday. The Under is 4-0 in the Stars’ last four home games against a team with an over .600 road winning percentage. The Under are also 3-0-1 in the Bruins’ last four when their opponent has allowed five goals or more in their previous game.

Boston Bruins Notes

-Boston Bruins goaltender Linus Ullmark is making his third consecutive start for the Black and Gold. The 28-year-old goalie stopped 30 of 31 shots in Boston’s 2-1 win against the Coyotes on Friday night and is 15-5-1 with a 2.54 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage. in 22 appearances this season. He will be backed up by rookie goalkeeper Jeremy Swayman, who has just been recalled by the Providence Bruins.

-Boston Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk returned to the lineup Friday after missing the previous two games with an upper-body injury.

-After spending time at right wing with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand in Friday’s win over Arizona, rookie right wing Oskar Steen will start Sunday night’s game against the Stars riding shotgun with Boston’s dynamic duo. That leaves the slumped Craig Smith on the third row as he finds himself in the midst of a streak of six straight games without a point, and just one game in the last nine when he tore up the score sheet.

-Forward Nick Foligno (lower body) fell behind in Boston and has missed all three games on the road. Boston Bruins defenseman John Moore is still on the day-to-day with an upper-body injury and also didn’t travel with the group. Forward Trent Frederic (upper body) is also out and there is no timetable for his return. Defender Jakub Zboril is out for the season after successful surgery for a torn ACL last month.

-Tuukka Rask hasn’t practiced with the Bruins since serving as Linus Ullmark’s backup in the overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche and has been absent from the ice for the past few days with a lower-body injury. Rask received treatment and remained off the ice Sunday morning and has led the way toward Swayman’s retirement from the NHL club. It’s very possible that Swayman will start Tuesday night at home against the Seattle Kraken.

dallas stars grades

-The Stars are 5-5-0 in their last 10 games and are just two points out of the last wild card spot in the playoffs in the West, so there is still a lot to play for the Stars. The Stars will be looking to snap a two-game losing streak at home.

-Joe Pavelski has been otherworldly during the month of January with seven goals and 21 points in 12 games along with a plus-8 rating to lead all Stars scorers this month. Meanwhile, Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn combined for just five goals this month and haven’t exactly had great seasons for a Stars team looking to them to carry the load.

-It would make sense for Boston Bruins killer Braden Holtby to get the initial nod for the Stars, though he has struggled with a 3.52 goal average and .891 save percentage this month.
