The Dallas Stars will try and complete the New York double as they face the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night. The Stars defeated the Rangers 2-1 on Monday as Mike Modano scored the game winner. “It was a lucky bounce,” said Modano, “Those don’t get old. It still gives you the idea that you can still hang around the players and play the game. I’ll stick around a little longer maybe.” Goaltender Marty Turco made 28 saves in the win for the Stars. “We kept working on making things go our way, and finally it did tonight,” captain Brenden Morrow said, “We just found a way to keep pushing and win the game.” SBG Global reports that early Hockey betting has the public taking Devils at Home.
The Devils are coming off a 3-1 road trip including a shootout win over Washington on Saturday. “It’s a good sign we can score goals when we have to,” said Patrik Elias. The Devils are getting great goaltending again from future Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur who gives them a chance to win every night.
