Nashville Predators vs Dallas Stars 03/07/2021 – Things are getting tougher for the Nashville Predators as they head over to Dallas to face the Stars on Sunday with a depleted lineup. On the brink of losing their fourth straight, the visiting Predators could not deny that the pressure to perform has become a daunting task. Meanwhile, the Stars, although not better record-wise compared to the Predators, have at least gotten something to build on after a 5-0 mastery over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday. The win perhaps earned the hosts the tag as favorites against Nashville for their one-game-only showdown this week. The nhl wagering odds have the Stars at -130 as the Predators are underdogs at +110. The match will be shown live on FSSW and to be streamed on NHL.TV.

Nashville Predators vs Dallas Stars 03/07/2021 Betting Odds:
A loss on Sunday would give the Nashville Predators their longest losing streak this season at four. It’s an unfortunate state for the team to say the least as the series of setbacks slowly drags them down to the bottom half of the Central Division standings. Frustrated, team captain Roman Josi blatantly called out their showing on ice, saying that they have to find a way to get out of the slump. It’s been a disastrous start of the month for Nashville. In the three games they played so far in March, they’ve registered 0-3-0 while being outscored, 15-8. Playing minus key players certainly played a huge role in the dismal stretch, but if they intend to put an end to the slide, then the team will have to shatter the excuses and simply make the most out of the weapons they have.
Players to watch: F. Forsberg LW (G 10, A 14, PTS 24), R. Josi D (G 2, A 13, PTS 15), V. Arvidsson RW (G 3, A 9, PTS 12)
Dallas has been seeking to gain traction since the start of the year, but inconsistencies in their game has hampered their bid. Multiple failed attempts, however, will not stop the Stars from giving their absolute effort, especially with the chance to score back-to-back wins for the first time since January when they host the Predators on Sunday. February was an utter nightmare for the team and it appeared that the bad dream was about to extend. They dropped their first two games in March, stretching their previous skid to four, but the group decided to flip the switch on Saturday and trounced the Blue Jackets via a shutout. The win might just be what the team needed to help them rediscover their old lethal form. At seventh in the division with just 18 points, it is imperative for Dallas to not take every silver lining for granted. It’s a one game at a time approach, and they might just take advantage of Nashville’s banged-up lineup next.
Players to watch: J. Pavelski C (G 11, A 11, PTS 22), J. Klingberg D (G 3, A 12, PTS 15), R. Hintz LW (G 5, A 7, PTS 12).
