The Red Wings have started the season 2-0 thanks to a 4-2 win over the Wild and a 2-1 shootout win over the Senators in Ottawa. The Wins are giving up 38.5 shots per game while posting only 30.5 per game. Mike Green is leading the Red Wings with four points while Martin Frk is the leading scorer with two goals. Jimmy Howard has a .961 save percentage through two starts.

Dallas is 0-2 to open the season, losing 2-1 at home to Vegas and 4-2 to the Blues in St. Louis. The Stars are amassing 43 shots on goal per game and allowing just 25.5 per contest. The play in net hasn’t been good as Kari Lehtonen has just a .813 save percentage. Ben Bishop hasn’t allowed a goal in 43 minutes in net, but he is questionable to play tonight due to an eye injury. John Klingberg and Devin Shore are the lone players with two points for Dallas.

Bet on Red Wings vs. Stars

Detroit has had a promising start while Dallas is surprisingly winless. However, there are key stats that show that both teams are due to turn in the other direction soon. Dallas is dominating the attack, averaging nearly 20 more shots per game. Eventually that sort of discrepancy is going to pay off. Detroit is the opposite, as it has managed to win despite allowing nearly 10 more shots per game. The Wings are getting goal tending right now, but they can’t keep winning by allowing more shots.
