Dallas Stars vs Carolina Hurricanes 01/31/2021 Betting Odds:
The Dallas Stars are raring to get back immediately and take on the Hurricanes again after the hosts busted their erstwhile winning streak that once stood at 4-0-0 start the NHL Regular Season. It was not ideal to play their very first road game of the year as the team was outshot by Dallas 26-11, which contributed to their once unblemished record being tainted. Stars head coach Rick Bowness rued his team’s failure to put on the pressure against the Hurricanes, as well as their tentativeness on the offensive end. Going into their revenge match on Sunday, Bowness wants his team to be more aggressive right at the onset. Any room for hesitation will not be allowed under his watch as he expects his skaters to have a shooting mentality in order to get back into the winning track.
Players to watch: J. Pavelski C (G 4, A 5, PTS 9), J. Klingberg D (G 2, A 5, PTS 7), D. Gurianov RW (G 3, A 4, PTS 7).
The Hurricanes will shoot for four wins in a row when they meet the Stars just barely a night after dismantling the latter in their very own ice arena. Carolina played spoilers against the Stars, who suffered their first loss of the season after five outings. Serving the 4-1 rout against the former undefeated squad seemed effortless for the hosts. They had the Stars’ number from start to finish, punishing last season’s runners up with their well-established game plan and a well-rounded team effort. Vincent Trocheck immediately took the load for Carolina as he scored twice in three minutes in the first period of the last game to set the tone for the team before Andrei Svechnikov and Ryan Dzingel followed suit to secure the victory. Carolina’s cohesive unit will be out to play as they seek to prove that Saturday’s win was no fluke.
Players to watch: A. Svechnikov RW (G 3, A 2, PTS 5), S. Aho RW (G 1, A 2, PTS 3), V. Trocheck C (G 2, A 1, PTS 3).

Stars vs Hurricanes Betting Picks
The Stars put their resistance down after four games of impressive victories. After Saturday’s wake-up call of a loss, the team is made aware that their guards should be kept on alert against a gritty Carolina squad. Sunday’s game will be a whole different story as the Stars will not only deny another lopsided loss, but they will also score a bounce-back win against the home team. As they heed Bowness’ call for a more aggressive mentality, there should be no reason for the Stars to drop a second straight game against the Hurricanes.
Score Prediction: Stars 4, Hurricanes 3.
