Edmonton Oilers VS Dallas Stars Game Preview

By Chris Ransom

How should Dallas game plan against rookie phenom Ryan Nugent Hopkins?  Ryan Nugent Hopkins, Taylor Hall, and Jordan Eberle anchor a line 1 unit that is only getting started in Edmonton.  This line should continue for at least another 2 decades unless a player leaves like Gretzky did.

The Dallas Stars have endured a 5 game losing streak.  Edmonton has a first line that every NHL team dreams of, a penalty killing unit ranked 7th in the NHL at this point, and Nikolai Khabibulan playing like the 2004 goalie that won the Stanley Cup for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Usually I go in depth about the Dallas Stars.  This just feels like one of those games where Dallas has no fighting chance.  I will pick Edmonton to win 5 to 1.

Got a different take on the game.  Post your thoughts in the comment center or shoot me an email at crans789@gmail.com
