Just The Facts (Mostly Facts)

-In Dallas’ last 8 wins they’ve scored 5 or more goals 6 times

-On the flip side the Stars have also given up 20 goals in their last 4 losses

-Calgary is 4-6-0 in their last 10 visits to Dallas

-Calgary and Dallas have the same amount of points (48), but the Flames sit one spot ahead of the Stars in the final WC spot due to their .600 Points Percentage

-The Stars have a suspect PK and that could be good for a Flames PP that hasn’t been good lately. Calgary is only 2-15 with the extra skater lately.

-Jacob Markstrom has 7 shutouts on the season which is three better than the next best goalie with 4 (Ilya Sorokin).

-Mikael Backlund is heating up. He has points in three of his four last games and has 24 SOG in that span.
