Stars Bag of Pucks – 4 Games to Go
Pretty much everything that could be said about this thing has already been said. This hockey team, brand new in so many ways, is trying to quiet its history and make it into the Western Conference playoffs. But, to do so, they have to play their best hockey at the very end of the season – something they have not done in many years. And, they are trying to do so against a team in the Phoenix Coyotes that has had their number since the Stars fired Dave Tippett back in 2009.
So, if historical trends are how you make your wagers, you would still fancy the Coyotes.
But, if you believe in computer simulations and statistical models that are free of historical bias, you think the Stars have a 74% likelihood.
I guess we are going to have to settle this on the ice. And here is what remains:
|Game #||Dallas (87)||Phx (86)|
|79||Tue – NSH||Tue – At Clb|
|80||Wed – CLB||Thu -At Nsh|
|81||Fri – STL||Sat – SJ|
|82||Sun – At Phx||Sun – DAL|
