Detroit Red Wings at Dallas Stars (G4) (Versus TV): Detroit has looked incredibly good in the playoffs and since the switch to Chris Osgood in goal, has been virtually unbeatable. Although not totally looking ahead to a potential matchup with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Stanley Cup finals, it is surely in the back of their minds so to try to get this series over with and get some more valuable rest while the Penguins and Flyers beat up on each other is exactly what Detroit and head coach Mike Babcock is looking for.

Expect a very desperate effort from Dallas which does have the guns to try and score with the Wings. This nervous energy will probably translate to an extra goal or two and toss in a possible empty netter and there should be at least five goals scored here. Hard to stop a moving freight train like Detroit so lets just get on board. RED WINGS, OVER 5.
