Dallas Stars Search For Road Success

The Dallas Stars are ranked 19th in the NHL in goals scored per game when away from home. The Stars need Jamie Benn to start stepping up and producing as he has over the past few years. Benn has amassed 27 points so far this season, much lower than before. Dallas needs Jamie Benn to wake up as the Stars are primed for a playoff run.

A night I’ll never forget. Tried to hold in the emotions, but the only thing I could think of all night were my parents sitting in the crowd. If you know Ray & Noreen and their passion for traveling to watch me play for the last 20 years, you understand. 🙏🏼 https://twitter.com/dallasstars/status/1224540096357191680

The Stars are ranked 8th in the NHL in goals allowed per game when on the road. Ben Bishop has been great this season, being the sole reason the Stars have been doing so well as of late. Bishop has been keeping his angles small and rebounds close and will need to do so here tonight to take down the home team.
 
NY Islanders Try to Mount Momentum
The NY Islanders rank 17th in the NHL in goals scored per game when at home with 3.19 on average. Brock Nelson has been on fire this year, racking up 21 goals and 19 assists this year. Nelson has scored a lot of goals by getting physical in front of the net. The Islanders and Nelson will need to bring everything to beat the Stars here tonight.

He had a really good December and followed that into January… We're looking for a goal here, or a goal there, so we brought him in to take a look at him." -Barry Trotzhttps://www.nhl.com/islanders/news/isles-day-to-day-bellows-recalled-by-islanders/c-314588460

NY has a defense ranked 10th in the NHL in goals allowed per game when on home ice. The Islanders will look towards Semyon Varlamov to be a stone wall in this game. Varlamov has been solid all year but will need to work on his blocker to start winning more games and cutting down on goals allowed. Look for the Islanders to get physical and help out their goalie in this game.
