Bet Tonight's Wild vs. Stars Game 2 Matchup

Even though there's been speculation that he is dealing with a minor injury, Devan Dubnyk will be between the pipes tonight for the Wild. He did not practice on Friday after John Torchetti referred to the situation as a "maintenance" day off for the goaltender.

Torchetti used the same term to describe Zach Parise's absence from practice and it later turned out to be an injury that kept him from playing, so Minnesota fans will hold their collective breaths on Dubnyk's status.

OUR PICK: The Stars are scorching hot. They're 7-1 in their last eight games overall, a perfect 7-0 in their last seven home games and 5-0 in their last five contests versus Central opponnets. They're also 5-1 in their last six games coming off a win, 20-7 in their last 27 home games versus a team with a losing road record, and 4-0 in their last four games playing on one day of rest. As for the Wild, the team is 0-4 in their last four games versus Western Conference opponents. Minnesota is also a dreadful 4-22 in its last 26 games in Dallas.
