Dallas Stars at Anaheim Ducks, 10PM ET (View Matchup)
The home team has won 7 of the last 8 games in the series while the Stars have won just 1 of their last 5 in Anaheim. The Ducks absolutely need this game as they are knocking on the door of the No. 8 spot in the West. My pick is with Anaheim to win as they have the home ice and have been on the rise over the last month.
