Stars vs Kings Prediction & Prop of the Game: Will the Stars Shine Bright in the City of Angels?
The Dallas Stars travel to the city of Angels to take on the Los Angeles Kings in a Western Conference clash of two teams sitting on top.
The Stars have been outstanding, sitting atop the Central division at 23-9-6 and looking to grab another big Western conference win.
The Kings are currently sitting 2nd in the Pacific at 21-13-6 and have racked up 48 points and would love to take advantage of home ice tonight.
In this Western conference Tuesday night clash, here is my analysis, game prediction, and a must bet player prop.
The Stars have Been Shining
Dallas has been fantastic early this season, and of late.
They have won 3 of their last 4 games and are looking to continue their excellent form tonight against the Kings.
Forward Jason Robertson has blossomed into a superstar this season, scoring 25 goals and racking up 54 points. Robertson along side Joe Pavelski and Jamie Benn have been sensational and have led the Stars on the offensive end.
On the other end of the ice, G Jake Oettinger has been fantastic as well between the pipes, sporting a .921 save percentage and and only allowing 2.36 GPG. He is 17-5-3 on the season and will look to pick up another all important win in LA tonight.
Can the Kings stay hot?
The Kings have won 6 of their last 8 games are looking to stay hot on home ice tonight.
One of those losses was last game on New Years Eve against the pesky Flyers, 4-2, so they will be looking to start the New Year on a better note in Crypto.com Arena.
Newcomer Kevin Fiala has been solid for the Kings this year, racking up 27 assists and fitting in perfectly in this Kings style of play.
Surprisingly Centerman Gabriel Vilardi leads the team in goals, and has notched 3 and an assist in his last 5 games.
On the back end, G Jonathan Quick has struggled to string together solid performances, with only a .884 save percentage and a 3.40 GGA average.
Can Quick put together a solid enough performance tonight to lift the Kings over the soaring Stars?

This is going to be a great game to cap off the night on the West Coast. Both of these teams are playing good hockey right now and matchup well.
I am going to ride with the better Goaltender here as I could see that playing the biggest factor in this game.
Give me the Stars and Oettinger to have another great performance tonight and ensure the boys from big D get the job done tonight in the City of Angels.
Stars ML (-126)
Prop of the Game
Jamie Benn to record a Point (-116)
Hard to not play Benn right now.
He is playing so well and has a point in 8 straight games. Obviously it is tough to ride a guy on a point streak because you don’t want to be late to the party.
But Benn will have plenty of opportunities to snag another point tonight, making it 9 in a row.
And at the -116 value, I love it even more.
