At 9:30 pm, our selection is on the Dallas Stars over the Colorado Avalanche.  With a loss in Game 1 on Tuesday, the Dallas Stars now come into Game 2 at home knowing that is almost a must-win situation.  The Avs are so good at home this season -- and in seasons past -- that for the Stars to go down 0-2 as they did in their first round series probably means they are going to be eliminated.  That Tuesday night loss really stung as Dallas shockingly blew a 3-0 first period lead at home.  The Stars will undoubtedly make some adjustments tonight to make another meltdown like the one they experienced in Game 1 as unlikely as possible.  Their first order of business will be to increase their shot total above the 22 that they managed on Tuesday.  There are at least a couple of reasons to think that the Stars will even this series tonight.  Dallas is 20-9 in its last 29 games immediately after allowing four or more goals and 8-1 in its last nine (24-7 in its last 31) after a loss to a division rival.  Take the Stars.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.

Al’s Pick Dallas Stars: -128
