Florida could not realize their full potential in the last playoffs, leaving as early as in the second round of the Stanley Cup, so there was a small staffing revolution in the club. Paul Maurice has taken over as head coach and is now settling in to his new place of work. Of course, he did not manage to show great results, so the Panthers won only nine matches and lost seven times in 16 games. Those aren't bad statistics, but they could be better! Now the Southerners are seventh in the Eastern Conference standings.
Dallas played worse in the Stanley Cup last season, dropping out in the first round. Peter DeBoer was named Texans' new head coach this offseason. The helmsman had a decent start, collecting points in five straight starts, but then struggled. In 11 consecutive games, the Stars scored only five wins and six losses, clearly below their level of ambition. Still, Dallas currently sits in third place in the Western Conference standings, six points behind the leader.

Expert Betting Tips
Both teams are off to a similar start in the current regular championship. However, it is the southerners who are favorites to win. The main argument is the home advantage. In their head-to-head rivalry it is not just a pretty word, as the Panthers have beaten the Stars in the last four head-to-head encounters at home. Here and now they should take two points, besides at home they won four of the last five games, and you can bet on Florida's win for 1.90 at Betway.
In recent years, the rivalry between Florida and Dallas has been very productive. Five previous head-to-head encounters saw the opponents combine for 41 goals (8.20 average per game), which is very respectable even by NHL standards. The teams are also having fun this season, so we would expect TO (6.5) pucks for 2.00 at 1xbet, and separately we should look at the bet on Carter Verhaeghe's goal at odds of 2.20 as offered by Bet365.
