The Pittsburgh Penguins pay the Dallas Stars a visit for a thrilling clash between the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference of the National Hockey League. The game will commence on Sunday, January 09, 3:00 AM (PHT), at the American Airlines Center, downtown Dallas, Texas. Dallas was the better team in the last matchup between the two teams, winning 2-1 against the Penguins. Will the Penguins take revenge? Or will the Stars continue their win streak? 


The Dallas Stars (16-12-2) are 12-3-1 in their home games, and they are aiming to keep their third home win streak. The team scored 86 goals and averages 2.9 goals per game, with Joe Pavelski leading the team with 28 points, 12 goals, and 16 assists. Meanwhile, John Klingberg has had eight assists in the last 10 games for Dallas. The team also ranks sixth in the Central Division, Western Conference with several other notable players in the team such as Jason Robertson, with 25 points (1.0 per game), scored 10 goals, and provided 15 assists; Roope Hintz has a total of 22 points with 12 goals and 10 assists; Braden Holtby with 34 goals (2.1 per game) and accumulated a total of 403 saves (25.2 saves per game). 


On the other hand, the Pittsburgh Penguins (20-8-5) rank ninth in the entire league and are 10-3-3 on the road and currently owning 10 winning streaks. The team averages 9.2 points, 3.3 goals, and 5.8 assists per game. Jake Guentzel leads the Penguins with 18 goals and 33 points, while Bryan Rush has seven goals and four assists in the last 10 games of the team. Moreover, Evan Rodrigues, one of the top scorers for the Penguins, has a total of 28 points (0.8 per game) along with 14 goals and 14 assists in 33 games. Another prominent player to look out for is Kris Letang, with one goal and 23 assists which adds up to a total of 24 points for this entire season. 


Dallas is ranked 19th in the league in terms of goal differential at -3 (-0.1 per game), while Pittsburgh is ranked seventh in the league in goal differential at +23 (+0.7 per game). With regards to power plays, the Stars scored 23 power-play goals (26.7% of opportunities, fifth in the league) while the Penguins gave 9 (putting down 89.9% of penalties, first in the league). In addition, the Penguins scored 16 power-play goals so far (17.2% of opportunities), while the Starts conceded 17 goals while short-handed (putting down 79.5% of penalties).  


Looking at the stats, it seems like the Penguins are the better team on paper. With 10 win streaks at the moment, it looks like Dallas will have a hard time keeping their home win streak. However, Dallas is looking pretty good in their recent matches, so we don’t know for sure. Nevertheless, we predict that the Pittsburgh Penguins will be the better team this time around. Penguins vs. Stars. This Sunday, 01/09/22, 3:00 AM (PHT), at the American Airlines Center, downtown Dallas, Texas.
