The Dallas Stars (19-15-12) play the second game of a two-game set against the Detroit Red Wings (17-25-7) Saturday with a 7 p.m. ET puck drop at Little Caesars Arena. Below, we analyze the Stars-Red Wings odds and lines, with NHL picks and predictions.

The Stars were able to score three goals in Thursday’s game, which is the good news. The bad news is that they allowed seven.

It’s familiarity, as these teams were playing for the third consecutive game, and Detroit finally figured it out.

The Red Wings have won two of the past three games at home, and they have scored at least two goals in six of the past seven games, averaging 3.3 goals per game.

That’s not quite considered a high-octane offense, but they average just 2.2 goals per game overall to rank 30th, so they have been on fire by their standards lately.

Stars at Red Wings: Projected starting goalies

Jake Oettinger (9-6-6, 2.23 GAA, .916 SV%, 1 SO) vs. Thomas Greiss (6-15-7, 2.95 GAA, .904 SV%)

Khudobin was pulled after the first period of Thursday’s 7-3 blowout, giving way to Oettinger. The 22-year-old Oettinger made 10 saves on 13 shots in relief.

Greiss has been outstanding lately, winning four of his past seven starts, and he hasn’t lost in regulation since April 3. He has posted a 2-2-2 mark with a 2.80 GAA and .914 SV% in his seven appearances against the Stars this season.

Stars at Red Wings: Odds, lines, predictions and picks


Red Wings 4, Stars 3

Money line (ML)

The RED WINGS (+175) are a strong play on home ice against the Stars (-200), who allowed a touchdown to Detroit in the front end of the back-to-back at the LCA.

The Wings have a ton of offensive confidence, and they have been receiving strong goaltending from Greiss lately.

Against the spread (ATS)

The RED WINGS +1.5 (-145) aren’t a bad value if you’re not feeling them as healthy underdogs at home and want a little bit of insurance. They have covered five of the past seven on the puck line as an underdog.

Over/Under (O/U)

The OVER 5.5 (+120) is a little bit expensive, but worth the play here. The Over is 2-0-1 in the past three meetings, including Overs in each of the past two with a total of 17 goals. We might not see quite that many goals here, but another Over result is in the offing.
