Money Line: -130.00 Dallas (Home)
Result: Loss
This is a Free #NHL play on the Dallas #Stars.

It's been a disappointing season so far for the underachieving Dallas Stars, and a home win over Montreal on Saturday put an end to a four game losing skid. They have won four of their last five at American Airlines Center, and they'll look to remain hot as they host the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

The Jets have surprised this season, currently sitting in eighth place in the Western Conference with a record of 14-9-5. A lack of offense might prevent them holding down a playoff spot though, as they rank 28th in the NHL averaging just 2.2 goals per game. The Jets also have one of the league's worst power-plays, clicking at a rate of just 13% with the man advantage (27th).

The Jets will be without star forward Evander Kane, who serves a two game suspension for a hit on Anaheim's Clayton Stoner on Sunday.

Stars forward Tyler Seguin has owned the Jets, scoring eight goals and six assists in the last 10 meetings between these two teams. He's leading the NHL with 21 goals so far this season, and he scored twice in the win over the Habs Saturday.

I think it's only a matter of time before the wins start to pile up for the Stars, and we get a great price to back them at home tonight.

Take DAL.
