Pittsburgh Penguins vs Dallas Stars / NHL – Who would have said before the start of the season that Penguins would be at the last place of the Eastern Conference after 19 games played. No one has hoped that from the double champions in the last three years. But they are playing disastrous this season, and if they do not drastically improve their game, they would even lose the playoffs. After four defeats in a row, they are now welcoming Dallas which is also defeated in the last round.
Pittsburgh Penguins vs Dallas Stars begins 22.11.2018 at 01:00 CET
Pittsburgh has opened the season great and in the first round they overcame their current champions after extra time with a score of 7:6. It was a repetition of the last season’s finals of the Eastern Conference, when Washington celebrated a 4:3 win in the series and went to the big finals. However, in the next four games, Pittsburgh has suffered three defeats and it was already evident that they would have problems this season. Even though they after a few bad performances, they have improved their form and achieved four wins, they started playing very badly again and experienced five defeats in the series. Their negative series was interrupted by a home victory over Arizona, but their good games did not last long.
In the next four matches, they have experienced the same number of defeats. However, no matter how poor their results were, the Penguins game was not catastrophic. They were mostly defeated with one or two goals of difference, and their last match was lost only after extra time, after they lost a 4:1 lead. Pittsburgh is having big problems in their defensive part, and they are also playing without their best player Crosby, who has been injured and it is surely a big handicap. How badly they are playing is best shown by the fact that they only scored one victory in the last seven domestic matches.
Dallasa's best team is on his field rather than away. Currently, they are the second-placed Western Conference team when it comes to playing on the domestic pitch. In the ten successful matches they had six defeats, and in the last four games out of their halls they only scored one victory. In this round of paper, they expect a lightweight encounter since they are visiting the last team of the Eastern Conference, but Stars’ players will certainly have no easy task, no matter what they are in a better position on the table than the Penguin.
Dallas is currently holding the seventh position, but due to the equality of team in the Western Conference, they have only two points less than the second Winnipeg. Before the last guest defeat from New York Rangers, they have made two victories against the Islanders and Boston. What could be a big problem for Stars' before their match against the Penguins is that they are having big problems with their team. Six players are injured and will not be able to play in this match. The absence of these players was best felt in the last few guest appearances.
Pittsburgh Penguins vs Dallas Stars PICK
Despite defeats, the players from Pittsburgh have fixed their game a little bit in the final matches, and the fans hope that they will finally be able to celebrate the victory in this duel. Dallas has injury problems and this may be a chance for a home team. After four defeats in a row, it is time for the Penguins to celebrate and for this reason we would give a small advantage to Pittsburgh in this match.
