Dallas vs Seattle: prediction for the NHL game
Dallas won four straight games at home, but they faced certain difficulties in most of those matches. For example, the Stars snatched a victory over Chicago in overtime (4:3 OT) and prevailed over Florida in a shootout (6:5 SO). Forward Pavelski had a great game against the Blackhawks: he gave two assists and scored a double.
After that, Dallas traveled to St. Louis, where they suffered a defeat to the Blues with a score of 1:2.
Seattle are on a six-game losing streak. They had a good chance to beat Philadelphia, but the Flyers leveled the score 5 minutes before the final siren and then snatched a win in overtime. The Kraken struggle to collect points even in home matches, where, for instance, they lost to Calgary (4:6) and Vancouver (2:5).
The Kraken couldn't end their losing streak away from home, having suffered a defeat to Colorado (3:4). Goalie Grubauer wasn't very reliable and saved only 88% of the shots on goal.
Seattle conceded in each period in 2 out of 3 games.
In 3 out of 4 games of Dallas, the teams scored more than one goal in the first period.
Dallas are on top form and have a great chance to extend their winning streak. Seattle are slumping and probably won't be able to put up a fight.
Our prediction - Dallas to win
Considering Seattle's terrible defensive play, we can assume that this will be a high-scoring game. Moreover, Dallas have very often delivered high performance in recent fixtures.
Second prediction - total over5.5 goals
