New Jersey Devils vs. Dallas Stars 

Friday, January 27, 2023 – 08:30 PM EST at American Airlines Center 

Team Analysis 

New Jersey Devils 

Despite losing 6-4 on the road against the Nashville Predators last time out, the NY Devils have been the best road team in the NHL this season having gone 18-3-2.

The Devils actually held three leads in their game against the Predators but ultimately ended up losing the game.  

The NJ Devils have now lost back-to-back road games for the first time this season and have seen overtime played in 4 of their previous 5 games in the NHL, this will be a tough test, to say the least.  

The Devils have an elite offense and defense having seen the 6th best goals against record at 2.67 goals allowed per game and they have scored 3.48 goals per game, which is also the 6th best offense.  

Dallas Stars 

The Stars are looking to bounce back at home following two overtime losses in their previous two games to the Buffalo Sabres and Carolina Hurricanes, both games ended 3-2.  

Dallas has had the second-best defense this season having allowed just 2.56 goals per game and has had the joint most shutouts with five in total.

Dallas has the fifth-best powerplay in the League scoring on 29% of their chances and has also accumulated 3.38 goals per game which are the fifth-best in the NHL right now.  

The Stars' top player this season has been Jason Robertson, he has scored 66 points in 50 games played which are the 6th highest in the NHL and he is just 8 points adrift from 2nd place overall.

It’s highly unlikely he will catch up to Connor McDavid in first who is already 23 points ahead.  

Stats and Trends  

New Jersey Devils 

  • New Jersey is 1-4 in their last 5 games against an opponent in the Central Division

  • Dallas is 6-2 in their last 8 games played on a Friday

Picks and Predictions 

Dallas Stars Moneyline 

The New Jersey Devils are coming into this game on a back-to-back, while the Stars have had a rest prior to this game.  

These are two of the best teams in the NHL right now and we believe the edge to be with the Stars in this game, the sportsbooks agree as they have priced them up as the (-125) favorites.

Dallas will be hurting from losing two home games in a row, it’s unlikely they will slump to an 0-3 run against a team who are potentially fatigued

The Devils have lost 10 of their previous 14 trips to the American Airlines Centre and have not won back-to-back games against Dallas in over 20 years.

The Stars might be top of the Western Conference right now but they will see this as a must-win game and we are more than happy to lay the juice with them on home ice, despite being against one of the better road teams in the league.
