This is the first of four consecutive meetings between these clubs over the course of six days. The first two games take place in Dallas, with the final two coming in Detroit. The Stars have taken three of the first-four clashes in this series, including 3-0 shutout on March 20.
Dallas completed a two-game sweep of Columbus with a convincing 5-1 victory on Saturday. Dallas is peaking at the right time, earning points in six consecutive games with a 4-0-2 record, outscoring their opponents, 22-9.
Stars rookie Jason Robertson is one of the reasons Dallas remains alive for a playoff spot. The 21-year-old California native has eight points (4G-4A) during the Stars’ current six-game point streak. While Minnesota’s Kirill Kaprizov is the clear favorite to win this season’s Calder Trophy (-500 according to PointsBet), Robertson has been the more productive rookie this spring. Since March 1, Robertson leads all rookies in assists (16) and points (26).
On Saturday, Detroit had its season-high win streak halted at three games with a 4-0 loss at home against Chicago. Red Wings goalie Jonathan Bernier stopped 23 of 26 shots in a losing effort. Detroit begins its final 10-game stretch of the regular season with four consecutive meetings with Dallas.
