On the 22nd of december Dallas Stars will welcome Chicago Blackhawks for a top clash meeting in the western conference (and the central division) over at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. Both teams are favourites for making it deep into this seasons Stanley cup and this will serve as an excellent warmup for what´s to come. This game might seem hard to predict at first but dont worry, the viking has got you covered.
Dallas stars will be coming into this game with 4 victories and 1 defeat at home and 3 victories and 2 defeats overall. The Stars have been performing at a very high level and are the current leaders of the western division (and central division). Their strong advancement from last years performance is mostly due to Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn leading the league in goals, with them in the front the stars are averaging 3.4 goals per game.
The stars will be without Ales Hemsky, Antoine Rousse, Jyrki Jokipakka, Travis Moen, Jordie Benn and Devin Shore.
The Chicago Blackhawks will be coming into this game with 2 victories (both OT) and 3 defeats (2 OT) on the road aswell as 4 victories (2 OT) and 1 defeat overall. The Bhawks are really the talk of the town almost every season, the overtime specialist team just seems to find new ways to win what ever happens. Most of their success is due to star player Patrick Kane who´s one of the leagues top scorer (at 21 goals and 29 assists) and Jonathan Toews (11 goals 10 assists). The bhawks main goalkeeper Carey Crawford is also worth mention seeing how he bolsters a 92.7% save percentage (2.17 GAA).

Betting on top clash fixtures is always difficult but with the viking’s preview of the game in mind and some additional facts, predicting the outcome for this game is rather easy.
First of all Dallas will be coming into this game with way more injuries than the Blackhawks. The Stars do have the stats in somewhat of their favor but bear in mind that Chicago have taken many of the latest road losses to overtime and barely lost.
Now for the real kicker; The Stars will be on a back to back game since they’re facing the fast paced Minnesota Wilds on the 21st and then travelling back to Dallas for this fixture. Facing fast teams is exhausting (especially in the NHL) and with the Stars injuries this is sure to play quite a big toll on the players. Add to that the fact that the Stars needs to travel back to Dallas. They will be having the home-ice advantage though and even though the viking expects Chicago to win this one, our prediction is that the Stars will put up a good fight and the game will surely go over 5.5 goals.
