West 2nd Round – Game 6, DAL leads series 3-2

The Dallas Stars are on the verge of advancing to the Western Conference Final as they take on the Seattle Kraken in Game Six of the Second Round. The Stars have been on a roll lately, winning back-to-back games after falling behind 2-1 in the series. Meanwhile, the Kraken are facing a must-win situation after suffering a 5-2 defeat in Game Five. The Stars’ offense has been on fire throughout the series, scoring an impressive 21 goals so far, with 11 of those coming in the past two games. Key players like Joe Pavelski, Max Domi, and Roope Hintz have been leading the charge, racking up a combined 12 goals and nine assists. Other players like Jamie Benn, Evgenii Dadonov, and Jason Robertson have also been chipping in, adding two goals and 12 assists to the team’s total. Even the defensemen have been contributing, with Thomas Harley and Jani Hankanpaa combining for two goals and five assists. 

The Stars’ defense has also been strong, allowing just five goals in the past two games. The top pairing of Miro Heiskanen and Ryan Suter has been outstanding, while Esa Lindell, Jani Hakanpaa, and Thomas Harley have all played key roles in limiting the Kraken’s scoring opportunities. However, the Stars will need better play from their goaltender Jake Oettinger, who has struggled in this series with 17 goals allowed on 138 shots. All eyes will be on the Stars as they look to close out the series with a win on the road and advance to the next round of the playoffs.

  • The Dallas Stars are 13-4 SU in their last 17 games.
  • The Stars are 6-3 SU in their last 9 outings with the Seattle Kraken.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of Dallas’ last 9 games on the road.

Despite scoring an impressive 19 goals in the series, the Seattle Kraken are facing elimination with their backs against the wall. The team has been led by their top two lines consisting of Jordan Eberle, Yanni Gourde, and Jaden Schwartz, who have combined for eight goals and five assists. Other players like Matthew Beniers, Tye Kartye, and Alexander Wennberg have also contributed three goals and six assists, and defensemen Vince Dunn and Justin Schultz have added two goals and seven assists. 

However, the Kraken’s defensive shortcomings have put them in a tough spot, as they have allowed a total of 21 goals in the series. While Adam Larsson, Vince Dunn, and Jamie Oleksiak have been solid on the top two pairings, the remaining defensemen have struggled to prevent the Stars from getting open shots on goal. Additionally, goaltender Philipp Grubauer has not been at his best, conceding 19 goals on 140 shots.

  • The total went OVER in 5 of the Kraken’s last 5 games.
  • The total hung OVER in 8 of Seattle’s last 8 meetings with the Dallas Stars.
  • The Seattle Kraken is 2-4 SU in their last 6 games at home.

Dallas Stars vs Seattle Kraken. The NHL pick for this game is the Dallas Stars. The Seattle Kraken are in a must-win situation as they aim to force a Game Seven, while the Dallas Stars are poised to take full control of the series in Game Six. The Stars have been a force to be reckoned with on offense, scoring a total of 21 goals in the series. Their forwards, including Joe Pavelski and Roope Hintz, have been particularly impressive with their skilled passing and ability to create scoring opportunities. Meanwhile, the Stars’ defense, led by Miro Heiskanen and Esa Lindell, has been working hard to disrupt the Kraken’s offense by limiting their passing lanes and forcing them to take direct shots on goal. Goaltender Jake Oettinger will need to make some critical saves to help secure the win. All signs point to the Stars coming out on top and advancing to the Western Conference Final. In fact, my prediction is that the Stars will win 5-2.
