Dallas Stars

Anton Khudobin will be between the pipes on Wednesday night against Los Angeles. Khudobin was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate and will get first half of the Stars' back-to-back situation. He is coming off a 4-1 win over Detroit last Friday and he has won each of his last four starts. He has a 10-5-1 record this season with a 2.20 GAA and .931 save percentage in 17 appearances.

Los Angeles Kings

Jonathan Quick made 20 saves in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Quick allowed three goals on a total of 23 shots and finished the night with a .870 save percentage. Quick put up a solid performance in the first, but allowed two critical goals in the second that shifted the momentum in favor of the Blue Jackets. With this loss Quick's season record falls to 11-16-2. With 16 losses, Quick now has tied Anaheim's John Gibson for the most losses in the league so far this season.

Dallas

The Stars are 4-0 in their last four games overall and 14-5 in their last 19 games following a win.

Los Angeles

The Kings are 2-6 in their last eight games overall and are 3-9 in their last 12 games versus Western Conference foes.

Prediction

The under is 12-3-2 in the Stars’ last 17 games as a road favorite, is 37-12-6 in their last 55 games coming off a win and is 38-14-3 in their last 55 games as a favorite. The under is also 6-2 in the Kings’ last eight games overall, is 6-2 in their last eight home games and 5-0 in their last five games versus Western Conference foes.
