The Dallas Stars employed an interesting method in their Game 5 victory on Thursday night. Dallas went with a less is more philosophy.

Essentially, they played Seattle’s game and gave the Kraken a taste of their own medicine. The Stars allowed the Kraken to attack so they could counter.

Seattle saw the rise of Jason Robertson to the Dallas box score as he racked up three points in Game 5. Now, it was probably the worst-case scenario as the Kraken allowed five goals in all.

The 5-2 loss puts the Kraken in a familiar position heading into Game 6. Seattle gets a home game and if they should survive, go on the road again for another Game 7. First things first is Saturday night.

Online sportsbooks lean Dallas to close the series out in Saturday night’s NHL odds.

Stars vs Kraken Analysis

This series turned right about the time the Dallas and Minnesota series turned last round. It is weird and uncanny.

However, does Seattle have one more kick left in them? Things looked bleak in round number one and then the Kraken took two straight from the defending champion Colorado Avalanche to advance.

Dallas played smart and allowed Seattle to get opportunities from mostly less dangerous areas on the ice. Dallas had far less shots but better scoring and high-danger chances (12-5) in Game 5. Yielding low-danger shots is beneficial for the Stars going forward. That bodes poorly if Seattle continues to be content there.

Now, what may happen next in this series on Saturday night (okay Saturday afternoon in Seattle)?

Now, did Seattle learn anything from its two losses?

So, does Dallas finish this series off and get a little rest before next week? Or, do we see a Game 7 on Monday night?

Stars vs Kraken Prediction

The playoff series possesses two roads. Now, does the Seattle script carry through where they find a way to win Game 6 and steal Game 7. Conversely, does Dallas just finish things off by taking three straight games after it looked like Seattle had control of this battle?

Philipp Grubauer could not make the saves that Jake Oettinger did on Thursday night. Will the same thing happen on Saturday? That’s the other burning question.
