Why you should back the Bruins

Boston may be breaking out of its offensive funk as it scored four times in Saturday's overtime loss to Los Angeles after recording a total of three goals over its previous three games. James van Riemsdyk entered that contest having tallied just twice in 16 outings but matched that amount in the first period against the Kings. It was the 34-year-old's second multi-goal performance of the season and first since Oct. 14 vs. Nashville in the Bruins' second game of 2023-24.

David Pastrnak is among the top offensive players in the NHL as he entered Sunday ranked fourth in both goals (34) and points (79). The 27-year-old Czech has recorded at least one point in seven of his last eight contests, collecting four goals and eight assists during the stretch. Pastrnak has racked up 15 tallies and 21 assists in a 24-game span during which he has been kept off the scoresheet only four times. The Bruins are 5-0-1 in six home meetings with the Stars since dropping a 5-3 decision on March 11, 2015. See who to back at SportsLine

Why you should back the Stars

Dallas entered Sunday leading the NHL with 208 goals and ranking third with a plus-41 goal differential.

Matt Duchene is right behind Hintz with 22 tallies and has netted four during his current three-game streak. The 33-year-old center has posted four consecutive multi-point performances and is tied with Jason Robertson for the team lead with 55 points after registering 56 in 71 contests with Nashville last season. Left wing Mason Marchment, who has matched his career high with 18 goals, is riding a nine-game point streak during which he has recorded four tallies and nine assists. See who to back at SportsLine
