Two of the hottest OVER teams in the NHL will meet tonight when the Stars travel to St. Paul, Minnesota to take on the best team in the Western Conference. The Wild have seen 19 of their last 25 games go OVER while the Stars’ last nine games have averaged a total of 6.89 goals.

- The Wild are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games after a loss.
- The Stars are 0-5 SU and 1-4 on the puckline in their last 5 games on the road.
- The total has gone OVER in 7 of the Stars’ last 9 games.
A major reason for both teams’ OVER surge is the success they’ve been having on the power play. The Stars have five total goals on the man advantage in their last three games while the Wild have four in their last three. It’s true that the Wild were shut out in their last game but it was against the Ducks, one of the stingiest teams in the league.
Tonight’s game could be an absolute barnburner and I’m going to be all over the OVER 5.5 as I can see it getting bet up to at least 6. Dallas has been one of the most penalized teams in the NHL since the all-star break and Minnesota has the most efficient home power play in the league with a 28.2 percent conversion rate.
A trend backed up by a stat like that is one I can absolutely get behind.
