Dallas vs Edmonton: prediction for the NHL game
The Dallas Starsplayed the last three games at home. In the first fixture, the Stars suffered a defeat to Nashville (2:4). This wasn't a god game for Dallas' goalie Holtby, who couldnt' save 15% of the shots. But in the following games, Dallas got two confident victories against Philadelphia and Detroit with the same score of 5:2. In these two games, forward Robertson chalked up four points.
Finally, in the last match Dallas defeated St. Louis with a score of 4:1. Forward Hintz scored a double against the Blues.
The Edmonton Oilers have scored most of their recent points at home, where they look amazing. But the Oilers often experience problems at their opponents' courts, and in the last five away games they could only get two victories - Edmonton got the upper hand against Boston (5:3) and St. Louis (5:4). Leon Draisaitl was excellent and scored 6 points in those two games.
The biggest problem for the Oilers is their poor defensive performance in away games, which costs them too many points.
Edmonton scored first in 3 head-to-head games out of 4.
In 3 out of 4 head-to-head games, the teams scored only one goal in the third period.
Dallas look great at home; this is where the team earns most points. Edmonton, on the other hand, are not so confident in their away fixtures, so we predict a victory for the Stars.
