Alexander Ovechkin is on his way to a new NHL record. He is only 67 goals short of Wayne Gretzky. In the current season, the Russian hockey player managed to record only five goals, which is quite sad because another legendary story is getting closer to its finale. Washington also looks pretty tired. Thus, ahead of the duel with Dallas, he has 26 points, the tenth indicator in the East. In the last game, the Capitals suffered a devastating defeat at the hands of Arizona, allowing six unanswered goals.
Dallas shows more convincing results compared to his upcoming opponent. In 24 games, the Stars have recorded 31 points - 14 wins and ten losses, three outside of regulation time. Thus, the Stars hold the fifth position in the West and second in the Central Division. Dallas approaches the game with the Capitals after two losses - 0:4 to Tampa and 4:5 to Florida.
Expert Betting Tips
It is quite difficult to decide on a favorite in this meeting, given that Washington plays at home, and Dallas, in principle, looks better on the season. Based on this, we recommend staying away from the outcomes and looking at the performance. In the last five face-to-face meetings, the opponents have never been able to break the bookmaker's total over, scoring a maximum of five goals.
