The Vancouver Canucks and Dallas Stars meet Saturday in NHL action at the American Airlines Center. The Vancouver Canucks need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Dallas Stars look to build on their three-game winning streak.

The Vancouver Canucks come into this game playing subpar hockey over the last two weeks, and they haven’t had a ton of success against the Stars in recent meetings. The Dallas Stars continue to pile up the wins, especially at home, and they’ve been disrespected by oddsmakers all season long. You could argue this line should be steeper for the home team. I’ll gladly take the Stars and the reasonable juice.
