Give me Dallas. They struggle to score at even strength, which we don't when healthy. They have a goalie that has been suspect in the past and has a short temper (we have a few players that can exploit that). They have been on a role of late and are confident that they can take the Preds. I like the underdog role, home ice, and a reasonably healthy group. As St Louis showed, if you score first you force them to open up.

Our games this year:
1-0 loss in Dallas (goal in the 3rd)
4-1 loss in Dallas (tied 1-1 late until consecutive 5 on 3's broke it open)
3-2 win at home (depleted lineup still wins)
The debacle final game-- out of it at the start, in the middle and at the end (if we play like this, we would perhaps not lose a series to the Yotes or Kings but that's it).

Throw out the final game and we were in each game. I think our depth is better for a 7 game series and I think we can grind out goals against them. I think we are the better team.
