Stars stumble in Game 6

Dallas lost Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals Sunday night by a score of 4-1 at home against St. Louis. The Stars gave up a quick goal 1:03 into the first period, but evened it up at the 8:25 mark of the first on a goal by Tyler Seguin on the power play with assists going to Mats Zuccarello and Jamie Benn. The Blues proceeded to take the lead again in the second period before adding a couple of insurance goals in the third period to put it away. Ben Bishop surrendered four goals on 20 shots before leaving the game after taking a shot which ended in a goal off the collarbone in the third period. Bishop is probable to play tonight. Anton Khubodin played the rest of the contest and saved all five shots sent his way.

Blues survive on road

St. Louis prevailed in must-win fashion Sunday night via a 4-1 victory at Dallas in Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals. Alex Pietrangelo gave the Blues a 1-0 advantage at the 18:57 mark of the first period on a goal assisted by Joel Edmundson and Jaden Schwartz. Dallas managed to tie it up later in the first period, but St. Louis took the lead again with 4:36 remaining in the second period on a David Perron goal with assists courtesy of Oskar Sundqvist and Ivan Barbashev. Schwartz pushed the Blues' lead to 3-1 with 12:23 left in the third period with a goal off assists from Alexander Steen and Colton Parayko. Only 33 seconds later, Sammy Blais made it 4-1 off an assist by Ryan O'Reilly. Jordan Binnington registered 22 saves on 23 shots in the winning effort.

NHL Betting Trends

Dallas

The Stars are 4-0 in their last four Tuesday games. Dallas is 8-2 in its last 10 games as a road underdog. 

St. Louis

The favorite is 1-4 in the last five meetings. The Blues are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings.

Prediction:

I'd have initially liked the value on Dallas as an underdog, but if Bishop isn't at 100 percent that takes away a lot of my willingness to pull the trigger on the underdog. Also, if you watched Game 6 the Blues completely bottled up the Stars' offensive attack. Binnington has shown as a rookie he has the chops to compete in pressure moments and I think he'll have another big game between the pipes. Look for St. Louis to manufacture enough offense in front of him to survive and advance at home.
