Dallas Stars (52-21-9) vs. Edmonton Oilers (49-27-6)


Dallas Stars vs. Edmonton Oilers Game 3 5/27/24 – As we prepare to head into Game 3 of the NHL Western Conference Finals at Rogers Place on May 27, 2024, Edmonton Oilers lead Dallas Stars 1-0 as we wait eagerly for Game 3. With both sides looking to maintain momentum or mount comeback attempts this matchup will provide handicapper predictions today and many eager fans and bettors look forward to witnessing yet another chapter in this high-stakes showdown.


Dallas Stars have seen signs of struggle recently in games against Oilers but remain confident with a healthy record on paper, holding only a 2-3 record over their past five. Yet their offensive capabilities cannot be underrated as Jason Robertson led by example by scoring 13 points in 14 games while Miro Heiskanen and Wyatt Johnston also continued making impactsful contributions making up their formidable offense; against an Oilers defense which has struggled on road with only 2-5 record against spread players might open doors for Dallas exploit.


Conversely, Edmonton Oilers bring their impressive offensive game led by Evan Bouchard who boasts 21 points in 13 games alone. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Zach Hyman provide depth scoring ability that should challenge Dallas Stars defense head-on; Dallas goaltender Jake Oettinger must perform at his peak due to Edmonton’s aggressive play style and high scoring rate.

Goaltender Jake Oettinger vs. Goaltender Stuart Skinner


Jake Oettinger of the Dallas Stars has proven to be an integral component of their defensive strategy throughout this playoffs run, boasting an outstanding save percentage of 0.919 and only 2.11 goals against per game on average – impressive statistics given an Oilers team which boasts prolific scoring capabilities this year. Oettinger will need to continue keeping shots away while being resilient under pressure; his experience and resilience give the Stars hope in recovering momentum in this series; yet for that to occur Oettinger must maintain composure against an offensive onslaught by opponents with rapid pace – otherwise their chances may slip further behind in this series.


Stuart Skinner of Edmonton Oilers comes into this matchup with less-than-stellar regular season stats: holding an 0.888 save percentage while conceding an average of 2.7 goals per game. Skinner has had moments of brilliance that have contributed immensely to Edmonton Oilers’ journey towards reaching the conference finals. His aim in the forthcoming game will be to boost his performance to match up against Jason Robertson and Wyatt Johnston as strategic players of the Stars. Skinner has shown inconsistency this season, which could present opportunities for the Stars. But his ability to perform under pressure remains crucial to the Oilers; and could ultimately determine whether their lead over Stars extends further or whether the series becomes even. His performance could prove decisive.


NHL Odds/Point Spread: TBD, Total Odds: TBD


As betting lines remain undecided, bettors must monitor any updates closely. Based on recent performance and historical analysis, Oilers could emerge as slight favorites while not underestimating the Stars’ capacity for recovery.


Dallas Stars Betting Trends


The Stars have recently struggled, posting an atrocious 1-4 record against the spread over their last five games; however, their road game performance versus spread is more encouraging at 4-2. Three out of their last five total over goals games may bode well for an exciting encounter against Edmonton this evening.


Edmonton Oilers Betting Trends


The Oilers have enjoyed better success recently with a 4-1 record; yet their pattern of covering the spread is similar to that of Stars; going 2-3 in their past five games covering it and three of those going over in total scoring could signal offensive strengths that influence betting strategies for total scores.
