Will the Blues get their legs today? Our Hockey Handicapper breaks down the game to come with the best two NHL Picks For this Sunday, So read on and cash in tonight.
We know that in order for a team to be a serious Stanley Cup contender they must have four lines that are a offensive threat with every shift. Outside of rookie Radek Faksa, who has three points in three games, it's been the top two lines who have been most effective for Dallas. Interesting because Faksa spent most of his season in the American Hockey League before being recalled. In the first series against Minnesota Dallas was able to get away with a lack of depth as their core took control led by Jamie Benn, Patrick Sharp, and Jason Spezza but in a series against a quality cup contender they must have much more of a presence and in game one they did.
It was the first time we saw some production from the Stars depth guys with Faksa, Antoine Roussel, and Alex Hemsky accounting for both Dallas goals but that was against a fatigued Blues team. Take note that as the game went on it was the Blues that appeared stronger with their fatigue being much more of a factor in the first period.
