Dallas -125 at Montreal O/U 5.5 
Recommendation: Dallas

One of the top clubs in the Western Conference heads up north to "La Métropole" as the Dallas Stars do battle with the Montreal Canadiens tonight. Both clubs come into this contest on a bit of a cold snap with identical 3-5-2 records over their last 10 games. The Canadiens are dealing with tons of injury issues throughout their lineup with defensemen Tom Gilbert and Jeff Petry out for the season and forwards Lars Eller, Alex Galchenyuk, Brendan Gallagher and David Desharnais expected to miss this contest. Montreal is basically looking to finish up its season without any more casualties as they will most likely miss the playoffs for the first time since the 2011-12 season. As for the Stars, they are tied with Chicago for the Central Division lead at 87 points with 15 games remaining. The poor play from goaltender Antti Niemi, who has lost four of his last five starts led to head coach Lindy Ruff inserting backup Kari Lehtonen between the pipes. The veteran netminder has picked up two straight victories after losing his three previous starts. Dallas has had trouble finding the back of the net, scoring three or fewer goals in seven of its last nine games. It’s a far cry from the first half of the season when the Stars were leading the league in most goal-scoring categories. This is a good spot for Dallas to go on the road, score some goals, and pick up some points against a team that is looking to skate out of what has been an extremely disappointing campaign. With a fairly cheap chalk price, I'm looking at the Stars here to get the victory over the Habs.
