December 17 there will be a match between the Dallas Stars and Edmonton Oilers. Will “oilers” manage to reverse its series of defeats today? Or will the “stars” inflict another blow to them? And here we go!
“Dallas Stars” – the team started the regular season very poorly. She always acted from defense, in a closed style and with a minimum number of positional attacks. Such a strategy did not allow the team to throw goals at the start of the championship; he experienced great difficulties with the implementation of the moments. But after the 10th round, his indicators stabilized, he even climbed to third place in the conference. Recently we replaced the head coach, the new coach did not depart from the old ideas, the team still plays confidently in defense, pays a lot of attention to their goal and the center of the field. Over the past five matches, “stars” have lost only once. Of the injured, only two hockey players: Hansal and Jones. Extremely against “Dallas” played the fifteenth, in it without any problems beat “Nashville” on the road with a score of 1: 4.
Edmonton Oilers – unlike the upcoming opponent, the “oilmen” successfully started the championship, for a long time they took first place in the conference. They have the best league players at the moment playing in the first link, these are McDavid and Dreisaytl, they now occupy the first and second places in the league top scorers table. But the “Edmonton” itself fell to sixth position, the problem is that other players play at an average level, and two people can not steadily drag the entire club. Recently, the “oil” shows poor results, it has four defeats in a row, three were in regular time and three in the home arena. In the last three matches, the team missed at least three goals. In the last match, he lost to “Toronto” at home with a score of 1: 4.
Picks for the match Dallas Stars – Edmonton Oilers
In the upcoming game, I propose to put the hosts to victory in regular time. “Dallas” is in great shape, the change of coach did not affect the results of the team. She plays according to her usual tactics, deep defense and counterattacks, it is very difficult to counter this. I do not think that the “Edmonton” away today will be able to demonstrate something. The team has a crisis, it can’t win four matches in a row, most of which were lost in the home arena. And “Dallas” showed an extremely confident game against “Nashville”. Plus, he was already winning the “oilmen” this season, I think he will be able to repeat this at home.
