Florida vs. Dallas: which team will interrupt their streak?
Florida Panthers vs. Dallas Stars: NHL prediction and betting tips (May 4, 2021)
Florida have won three games in a row, while Dallas have lost in their last three games. How will the match between the teams end on May 4? Look for the answer in the prediction below.
The Florida Panthers are in third place in the Central Division with a combined 73 points gained. There is a good chance that the team will reach the opening round of the playoffs, but they will unlikely manage to take first place. Note that the Panthers had a great away series, during which they managed to deal with Nashville (7:4), and twice beat Chicago - 4:3 (OT) and 5:4, respectively.
Joel Quenneville's men have never differed to be disciplined defensively and almost always concede a lot, but at the same time, they score the most in this division. At home, Florida have lost only five times in the regular season, though they have held a total of 25 games.
Upcoming Predictions for Hockey
The Dallas Stars look very unstable this season and that is why they are ranked fifth in the standings. The team is only three points behind fourth place and has one game left, but they need a lot of effort to compete with Nashville for the playoffs.
Instead of actively earning points, the Stars lost three games in a row. They lost to Carolina (1:5), Tampa (0:3), and the Predators 0:1 in overtime. At the same time, in none of these matches Rick Bowness's players managed to open the opponent's defense more than once.
Dallas are clearly not in the best shape, but they desperately need to score points if they want to compete with Nashville in the playoffs. However, Florida are still fighting for the leadership in the division, so in the home arena, they are definitely not ready to make gifts to the Stars. Besides, this season the Panthers look much better than their rivals.
