Dallas Stars (31-21-6) @ Vancouver Canucks (37-13-9)

Our Prediction: Vancouver Canucks 5-3

Expert Picks: Available Here!

Preview: The eighth seeded Dallas Stars will take on the top seeded Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

If the postseason started today, in the Western Conference this would be a first round playoff game. The Stars are barely holding on, as they are tied with four teams with 68 points. Dallas has lost three straight games, with their most recent coming to Calgary on Wednesday night. The Stars have seen Brad Richards put together a fine season, as he leads in both goals scored (24) and assists (39), for a total of 63 points. Dallas is scoring 2.7 goals per game, and allowing 2.8. Goaltender Andrew Raycroft has been up and down all season, and currently sits with a 2.57 goals against average.

The Canucks come into the game leading the Western Conference, and the entire NHL by two points. Their 83 points sits 7 points ahead of the Detroit Red Wings in the West. The Canucks lead the NHL in both goals per game (3.3) and goals allowed (2.3). Vancouver is coming off a tough loss on Thursday, to the Nashville Predators. The Canucks have been almost unbeatable at home, going 20-4-5 on the season.

My Betting Predictions: Vancouver comes away with a win. Canucks 5-3.
